Since NBC Sports will be done with NFL Coverage after today's NFL Wildcard games, it is time for them to take a small breather before the 2010 Winter Olympics begin this month. Part of that is filling air-time with figure skating. Tomorrow, this means they will be airing taped coverage of the Progressive Skating & Gymnastics Spectacular at 4 p.m. ET.
The event was taped on October 30, 2009 at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center in Rapid City, South Dakota It is not clear how the two sports go together, so you will have to watch and see.
Here is the press release from NBC Sports.
