Sooooooo Seriously

The winter olympics end today.  Thank heaven.

Note to Brian Williams and Bob Costas:  You take yourselves sooooo seriously, much like Paul Simon in this November 1976 "Saturday Night Live" clip.

I tried to watch.  I really did.  I just couldn't get interested, and the NBC attempts to create drama, where there was none, were disappointing.

Does anyone really understand curling?

Shaun White, Lindsey Vonn, Apolo Ohno?  Way too much!

I will give the network credit for its video.  It was outstanding.  Unfortunately, NBC wanted to protect its investment.  Sharing with other networks was virtually non existent.  If you were wondering why you didn't see much on the weekend morning broadcast...
