    That was the beginning of that US v. the World coverage.  NBC coverage is atrocious, I'll admit.

    But then, I've never cared for any of the NBC on-air personalities.  

    The reason I want to watch the Olympics is precisely because I want to see athletes and sports from events and nations I don't get to see regularly.

    If I want to watch NBA players, for example, I'll watch the NBA.  I don't need the Olympics to do that.  However, I never get the chance to see African nations play basketball.  Nor do I get a chance to see women running track events in  headscarves.

    And the best part of the opening ceremonies is seeing all the nations come in, not just waiting for the US team and the host nation.
