    While we are talking coverage, has anyone else noticed that the team jerseys and hats have the country's name in English? Let alone in Arabic- seeing Russia instead of the same thing in Cyrillic or any other language sucks. Nothing like when the USSR said CCCP on them.

    You'd think at least the countries would be listed locally in Japanese.

    Way, way, way too much power to NBC.

    I mean it is an allegation. It would be pretty ****ed up if you could just accuse somebody of a crime and destroy their life.

    (Something pedophilia something something)

    - I liked the swimming color commentator, busting everyone's balls for their reaction time.
    - Is there a rule that the US men's swimming contingent each year have to have a combined IQ of 150?
    Apparently in the race the Tunisian won the jingo broadcasters mentioned him twice -- including that he had won -- while slathering all over you know who.

    A perfect Summer Games would have zero US medals.

    Yes, that melted my heart.

    - Showing me the instantaneous speed of a swimmer is by far the most useless state imaginable.

    Good. Ever since the Dream Team ruined the Olympics I have rooted for US hoops to lose every game by 100 points.
