The InnuendOlympics

I'm watching all the Olympics I can. (Even obscure stuff like men's field hockey!) NBC is finally entering the 20th Century (No, that's not a typo)-- They're allowing us to watch events online, after downloading a special video viewer. It's eerie because we see the entire event, from start to finish, without all that "Up Close and Personal" nonsense and without commercial interruption.

And without all that chatter from the play-by-play guy and the color commentator.

But, if you want to, you can read the chatter. See illustration above, from live coverage of Men's 62Kg, Group A Weightlifting for the highlight (so far!) of the Olympics commentary: "Oh, my, that's a fantastic snatch!"

I am soooo immature.
