Olympic Spoilers Totally Blow It (PICTURE)

Posted: Updated:

These 2012 Olympics have presented a bit of a problem for viewers: because of the time difference from London to the U.S., NBC decided to time-delay their coverage a little bit. Why air at 4 AM what you can air hours later when people will actually tune in?

The strategy makes sense -- sort of -- but it also means that Americans have to be careful online.


Spoilers! Duh.

So one intrepid Facebook user was brave enough to actually ask his friends not to post anything that might ruin the surprise for him, and luckily he has the coolest friends ever.
