On Phish & the Olymipcs | Reposed from

Just a few fun facts [phun phacts] about Phish on network/stadium playlists during the Olympics.

Ocelot was played during trials for the ski jump on 12/26/09.

First Tube was used in the bump to a commercial about the upcoming bobsled competition on 2/20/10.

Tweezer Reprise (a good 3 minutes worth!) was the background music for the Ono speedskating segment late on 2/20/10.

Kill Devil Falls (the version from Joy) was played over the PA at the Canada vs. USA men's hockey game 2/21/10, with about 15 seconds left in the first period. They played about 20 seconds of the chorus before the puck was dropped again.

Axilla (Part II) (from Hoist) was played with about 8 minutes left in the second period at the same game.


On another note loosely related to the Olympics; Skate skis are the new Downhill skis. Maximum fun + no lift ticket. Snow is becoming plentiful up Uxbridge way.
