Olympic Stories Send Up
One of the things I like about the Olympics are the personal stories but NBC
occasionally frequently gets out of hand at the expense of the actual, y’know, competition. I’m waiting to hear about a curling star from Latvia who grew up broomless and overcame the odds by immigrating to Canada and accepting a job as janitor where he accessed his first broom (“from there, he swept his way into the Winter Games– and into our hearts”). The Daily Show wonderfully spoofed this phenomenom during the Summer Games a few years back. Less talk, more action please!
