Anyone watching the Olympics at all???

Some of the announcers have been saying to some really dumb things. Example

A gymnastics announcer, in regards to the chances a chinese man could win the all around gold medal after his Olympic team won gold in the team event.

"...dreams of winning this gold medal, and it is rare. It hasn't happened since 1992...But, 60% of the time the all around gold medalist has come from the winning team so he's got some odds in his favor..."

How is rare if it happens the majority of the time???

Another genius said this.

"From time to time, Pete, during the course of team competition things will slow down a little bit for the director to look at the instant replay. This was instituted, in particular this year, to prevent any mistakes from happening."

Holy shit...here I thought instant replay was just to get really cool slow motions shots...huh. Who knew??

I heard a soundbite this morning, one of them was describing a black athlete from France as "The African American athlete from France..."
