NBC Olympics Parisian Knot Scarf Watch: Al Roker Impresses Ladies With Hog Size & Lester Holt Needs Some Heat Up In This Chalet
Ever seen a black weather guy’s wiener, ladies? Hog-ish.
NBC has caught Olympics fever and really, really cares about no-name U.S. competitors because they have $300 million invested in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.
And the Peacock Network really, really, wants you to feel cozy with their coverage. There are pretty sweaters, hip jackets, neat-o hats, warm & fuzzy fireplace scenes and plenty of local flavor that’ll suck in soccer mom who’ll then be bombarded with 48 minutes of commercials every hour.
We’ll call our coverage “NBC Olympics Parisian Knot Scarf Watch,” in honor of all the scarfs that NBC purchased so that its male talking head dorks look hip and very mountain-ish.
Dude, it’s so cold out here! (Monday, Feb. 15, 2010
Here is the background story to this series that’ll hopefully continue over the next two weeks. We noticed Saturday morning that the NBC geeks were being dressed like a J.Crew magazine shoot. It’s like a bunch of gay guys are dressing our straight American teleprompter readers.
Today we find Matt Lauer with his Parisian style knot but his coat isn’t even zipped up. Is his neck really that important? Shit, dude, there is a fire in front of you.
Dude, can’t someone turn up the heat in this studio? (Saturday, Feb. 13, 2010)
That’s right, folks, Lester never wears that stupid scarf when he’s in NYC – only when he’s in Vancouver for the Olympics.
This really makes us wonder if Vancouver ski resorts have decent heating. What, no furnace?
