    Avoiding Olympics spoilers is an event all its own

    To keep Olympics results a surprise, Kate O’Malley of Chelmsford avoids Facebook like a champion. She skips e-mail alerts from news organizations, silences the radio when Olympics coverage comes on, pleads with colleagues not to discuss the games in front of her.

    But even that may not be enough to shut out news about Thursday’s women’s gymnastics finals until Friday evening — yes, Friday evening — when O’Malley finally sits down with her husband to enjoy the taped broadcast.
