    What the heck happened to cowbells?

    In the past Olympics all I can remember hearing during events besides cheering were the cowbells. This year it sounds like they're using airhorns or something... I noticed this a lot the other night during the snowboard cross. It sounds almost like they ditched the cowbells in favor of using actual cows. I liked the cowbells better...

    Anyone know what's up with that?

    i just....GOTTA have more cowbell

    they still are using them on at least the luge and downhill, but they didn't seem as loud.

    I think it's because the commentary is so much better this time around, and they are mixing the actual event sounds lower so that the commentary is more present.

    I just don't get the airhorn thing... There's nothing that sounds more "Olympic" than cowbells IMO.

    At 1 event a commentator stated "You can tell the Swedes are in the crowd from the cowbells"
    Evidently the Swedes are the cowbell ringers and you only hear them, if they[swedes] are participating
    and doing well in the event.
