An NBC Prime Time Olympics Coverage Observation

Watch an event where someone goes down a hill or a track quickly -- in which NBC is not going to take the time to show you all 40 competitors.

NBC will show you four types of competitors:  Americans, people who medal, people who are World champions and therefore expected to medal, and people who crash spectacularly.

You can take this to the bank.  They're showing you the downhill run of some 19-year-old from a country where they don't even have snow, it's just a matter of time before he pops a ski and earns himself a really unpleasant set of skid marks.
