NBC will now place those eagle-eyed, profoundly insightful observers on the job observing the Obama Campaign this year.
Ouch! That left a mark. On my funny bone.
How dare they be honest and critical.
Everyone is a winner and everyone deserves the same “participation” award.
The gold/silver/bronze medals are so unfair to everyone. They all worked so hard and all deserve to be winners.
Should have included Bob Costas’s pre-game interview with Phelps. You would have thought Phelps was a washed up has been.
I’d like to see ANY of those announcer dicks do ten push-ups.

Yeah, lets have some washed-up has-beens sitting around telling us how sucky world-class athletes are. Nice job, assholes.
NBC = Nothing But Crap.
My favorite is the “OWWWW!” when they “feel the pain” of the athlete.
I didn’t watch the Olympics but that was a great re-cap. Thanks BFH.
Stranded in Sonoma
Yeah, but how many times did they laud the really great performances? I know it won’t be one-to-one because there is only one gold medal, but let’s face some facts. This is what human competition is all about. Some do well under pressure and some do not.
Teddy Roosevelt said it better than me.
“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”
