Get It Together NBC

Dear NBC,

I made the decision to stick with you and watch the Olympics on your network, not online, but on your “live” coverage on tv. Even though waiting hours and hours to see how the races and events play out, I think it is worth it for the commentary from Bob Costas and Rowdy Gaines (although, I have to admit, the majority of the time I am criticizing Rowdy’s comments).

Well I am sorry, but you have just disappointed me. I realize that you want to boost your total number viewers for your “Today Show” coverage during theses Olympic Games. I mean, I can’t really blame you with all of the heat you’ve been taking from Good Morning America. But really, don’t spoil your own coverage by saying “be there with us tomorrow morning as we interview gold medalist [insert name here]” BEFORE the coverage of the competition!

Honestly, you kind of took the wind out of your own sails there. Don’t make me start a campaigning to switch the Olympic coverage to another network. And yes, I have that much power. Don’t test me.

Consider yourself warned,


The Rise of the British

One year from today we will be welcoming in the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Last year I wrote about the 2 year mark until the games, so I figured I should keep with that same theme and acknowledge the fact that we are now only 365 days away.

The aquatics stadium has been build, tickets have been sold, and more than 3 million hours have been put into constructing the Olympic Village and Park – all without a single reportable injury.

The biggest question that remains is who will light the torch during the opening ceremonies. My vote is for David Beckham. Honestly, I believe that the more air time this man gets, the more successful these Olympics will be. And did someone say the Spice Girls would be performing at the Open Ceremonies? Oh no, that was just me?

Between the Olympics and the Royal Wedding, 2011 and 2012, I feel like we are experiencing another British Invasion. And I have to admit, I kinda like it.
