Our quest to find “Peter (wearing shorts) from North Carolina” after the jump.
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 thatâ€™ll suck in soccer mom whoâ€™ll then be bombarded with 48 minutes of commercials every hour.
Weâ€™ll call our coverage â€œNBC Olympics Parisian Knot Scarf Watch,â€ in honor of all the scarfs that NBC purchased so that its male talking head dorks look hip and very mountain-ish.

Ok, here is today’s assignment. We have to find Peter. The guy wearing shorts above made his world debut this morning wearing shorts during The Today Show and Al asked him his name.
“Peter from North Carolina.”
We’ll be starting a Facebook group later today to figure out who this rebel really is.
Or you could save us time and just email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
