I hate NBC and their time-delayed, over-produced, warm & fuzzy, US-centric coverage.
I think that has been the case for a long time. When I was growing up, I was under the mistaken impression that NBC (or whichever network was doing the coverage) hosted the Olympics and everything revolved around the U.S. athletes.
I remember watching the Olympics as a kid in the '60s and '70s. Minimal intrusion by the sportscasters and they showed everyone who competed. Not just the US athletes and a few elite foreigners.

I always thought the NBC coverage should called the "US Olympic coverage *"

My use of revolutionary flags and symbols in no way endorses the group of morons known as The Tea Party
