(Deadspin)   NBC's lowest-common-denominator marketing vermin figured you wanted to see Ryan Seacrest fluff-interviewing Michael Phelps instead of this most moving part of the opening ceremonies   ( divider line

So sad. On another note, I can't believe anyone lets Phelps near a mic. I definitely respect his athletic prowess but I think that dude suffered some severe head trauma at some point. Holy shiat, his interview this morning, I thought they were talking to a retarded kid they let play in the pool before the events until I looked up and saw him.

Interviewer: Michael, what are your thoughts on that last qualifier?

Phelps: You know, sideburns don't really burn at all. They're on the side, though, so I guess it's half right.

Interviewer: you feel confident about tonight?

Phelps: Call me Grape Ape.

Interviewer: you feel like there are more gold medals in your future, Grape Ape?

Phelps: Thank you, I'd love a biscuit.

Interviewer: And that was Olympic champion Michael Phe....

Phelps: I can see your balls in them shorts, brah!

Interviewer: OK, now we're going to check in on ping pong.

Well, it wasn't quite that bad but the dude looked like he was on another planet. I guess he found some British weed over there.

And allow some other nation to cut into American Exceptionalism at victimology?

Meredith Vierra did say money shot after the finale so there was that.

A tribute to victims of terrorism? Oh, f*ck off. They should have had a tribute to victims of the American "health care" system since they paid tribute to NHS.

I have regular dreams involving feeding NBC executives into a woodchipper. I wake feeling refreshed and able to face the days after those nights.

Mrtraveler01: haterade: i didn't know so many 80+ year old's were victims of terrorism (opening collage)

There's still confusion on whether or not it was a tribute to 7/7 victims or just a tribute to people who bought tickets to the opening ceremony but passed away before they could go.

And now -- a tribute to the Olympic's No Refund/No Exchanges Policy!
