Simpsons, hmmmm, Nick.Shu chefkath
, sounds like you have a nice setup there... LIVE... what a concept! Incidentally, I heard that the ratings for these games are only 1/3 of the ratings they got for the Atlanta games.
I would agree about the fluff... ever since NBC got the Olympic franchise, they have been doing more and more of this. Maybe it makes up for the lack of action they are actually showing. And of course, don't expect to find the "cool" events on during prime time... nope, you are stuck with some track, swimming and gymnastics... Where is the Judo?
Regarding Costas, I think he's a decent commentator (I dislike Jim Grey even more)... but I think Bob would be best served in the element he loves: baseball. He has my vote to be commissioner.
Thanks for the feedback.
