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.

"More idiots on the side (and behind the mic)"
"Wouldn't mind finishing off her"
"Unfortunately I don't have any more time."

And Viper's hilariously profane/profound retort to the IOC:

Audioboo / The IOC

Awww---they pulled it!

The video was pulled, apparently under pressure from the Olympic committee. Must have been too embarrassing! Has anyone found it elsewhere or downloaded a copy before it was pulled?

I'd like to see him commentate on badminton or horse dressage... awesome.

I've been watching the sailing using the NBC Olympics app on my iPad. It's like CSPAN for the Olympics. No annoying commentators. But this guy was fantastic. NBC should hire him.

Priceless look at why we see no coverage. Probably not far from how it's seen frankly.

Freakin' classic!

"Wouldn't mind Finnishing off with her."
"You'd hear the Aussies coming before you'd see them."
"Go back you fool! You're not going to win any medals going that way."
