The big news at the Olympics is that Bob Costas’ pink eye is getting worse (probably splashed Russian water on his face) and is being replaced during tonight’s primetime coverage by Lauer.
The other big news is that the color commentator working skiathlon and cross-country skiing, Chad Salmela, is the breakout star of the Games. The guy can call a finish line better than anyone on TV.
It’s amazing that the guy can even pronounce the foreign names. He’s all over the Russian names. Just knows his shit.
