Re: This is just hilarious...

One of the problems with Olympic coverage is very few news organizations don't have anyone who covers the various events. That is no one who knows the event.

During the (winter) Lillehammer Olympics there was a guy from Cleveland (I assume) with an Indian's Spring jacket looking at the ski jumpers, shivering. He had no clue what to ask. I asked a few questions... in hopes he might understand... but if you are not invovled in a sport, you are clue less. He (parroted) asked: "how was the air." It's a good question for both sailing and ski jumping. In ski jumping if the wind is blowing at you it gives some lift. Of course this guy after asking it couldn't comprehend what answers like: "kind of heavy" meant.

"Wouldn't mind finishing off her"
"Unfortunately I don't have any more time."
