Things You Will Never Overhear at the 2010 Winter Olympics

“Wow, NBC hasn’t focused on a single American athlete yet.”

“Once again a doping scandal has rocked the curling world.”

“You want to see team unity? You should check out the Italians.”

“The network only wants objective ‘video dairies’ on the athletes. Don’t play on the viewers’ emotions.”

“China and Taiwan have decided to share the gold medal.”

“For me, nothing embodies the true spirit of the Ancient Greek Olympic games like snowboarding.”

“Now that I won the gold, I want to become a professional biathlonist.”

“We completely sold out of modern nordic combined T-shirts again."

"And the fight for the ice hockey championship has come down to a final two--Andora vs. Tonga."

“Man, Portugal’s winning everything!”

Yeah, there's nothing worse than those subjective video dairies. I don't want to hear about what the cows are feeling!

Biathlon is good preparation for becoming a serial killer in a thinly populated arctic region.

(on NBC tv:)

... And although it lasts longer than 5 minutes, we're going to show this race live, and without commercial interuption!
