Olympics Smotherage

Some gripes about NBC's coverage of 2006 Winter Olympics:

-Too much coverage of sports that Americans recently invented so we can win at least a few medals during any Winter Olympics
-Too many commercials
-Not enough stories about the culture and history of Turin and Italy
-Not enough profiles of athletes from foreign countries
-Too much makeup worn by Bob Costas
-Too many athletes who are featured on the many commercials not living up to their hype
-Not enough curling
-Not enough stories about the athletes and their pets (I love that sappy stuff!)
-Too much complaining by Jimmy Roberts about everyone and everything (Hello kettle, this is the pot calling, you're black.)
-Too many weeks passing by without a new episode of The Office

Too bad you couldn't get the CBC coverage - they do little spots about Turin all the time.

Not enough curling
I can't believe anyone feels that way - I think *any* curling is too much curling. :0

I find the Winter Olympics endlessly fascinating because we don't get much ice here. And curling just tickles me. "Lars, we got a broom, a stone and some frozen water. That's got good times written all over it!"

-Too much awful sports commentary.

Not just for NBC though... for all of them.

The coverage is either sycophantic or derogatory.
