In case no one noticed, I've used the "cool" tag all week to represent the season there.

Let's raise a glass and have some laughs at NBC's expense.  You guys have been a blast.  Except for that one guy.  Fark him.

Earguy,  THANK YOU for doing all you did this week.

/Won't be around for the Kerrigan/Harding dog and pony show.  I'll be around later for the actual ceremonies.

Haha, I did not notice. Nicely done, sir.

*raises drink*

At some point soon I'll be making burgers. Might be sooner than later, because somehow, I'm really hungry, despite having a Qdoba burrito less than 4 hours ago.

Oh my god....she's doing karaoke to nobody. And yikes, she's bad.

I made Memphis's Rendezvous Ribs for dinner.  Local meat with the signature rub and sauce.  Quite delicious.  Still too sick for alcohol, it's just killing me I have this bottle of single-barrel bourbon that I haven't even opened yet.

Oh, lord, that was me and Mrs. Earguy's wedding song.

That sounds delicious. I haven't made ribs in forever. Last time I did it was in the slow cooker, and they were pretty good. I want to grill them this summer.

I might have an old fashioned tonight...only have a few beers, and I don't like those that we have very much.

/variety pack...mostly yay....

Wow, this documentary is boring.  Does anyone actually care?  Tonya looks like a fat, white trashy woman, and Nancy looks like a stuck-up biatch.  And there's still more than an hour to go?  Couldn't NBC have come up with anything else besides this fluff piece?
 
2014-02-23 07:16:50 PM  
Yikes, did they have to show her singing karaoke?   So this is what bleeding ears feels like.
 
2014-02-23 07:20:53 PM  
I think that in order to get cooperation, they had to guarantee some degree of painting them both as sympathetic and tragic rather than princess and dirtbag.

I remember all of this, yes I'm old.

I don't need to watch NBC to know those facts.  Really, I've never, EVER seen anything by either of them to debate those facts.

NIXON YOU DOLT!!!!!: This is nutso.


To NBC's credit, they've been promoting this all through the Olympics, we knew it was coming.

Last summer Olympics, they surprised us with a detailed history of London's weather of WWII.  Tom Brokaw was obviously proud of it, but all of America was screaming WTF IS THIS SHIAT?  AND WHEN WILL IT END?   Every half-hour, we were wondering if they were going to wrap it up.   And they didn't
 
2014-02-23 07:32:20 PM  

Earguy: a detailed history of London's weather of WWII.


Uh, I meant weathering, as in enduring.
 
2014-02-23 07:32:51 PM  
I'm always leery about going to the SI website at work because of their swimsuit photos right on the front page.

It would appear they have gone fully NSFW now with numerous models. Not even trying to cover stuff up anymore. Enjoy the distraction!

And with that, burger time. I'm hungry.

Canadia won the Winter Olympics again this year.
 
2014-02-23 07:38:04 PM  
Thanks everyone for making the Olympics great and sarcastic this year. Earguy, pico, Bunny, et al. I was horribly sick with cold and flu much of the time, and you all made NBC's coverage bearable.

Best models, best designers, best locality scouts, best photographers.

Best photoshoppers.

Still, stunning shots.  Totally jealous of the ability to make such photos.  Always working on it as a hobby.

Oh, they're catching Tonya in all kinds of lies.

Shawn was never my bodyguard....(footage) Shawn here is my bodyguard.
I didn't smoke when I was competing...(photo) Tonya smoking
 
2014-02-23 07:47:10 PM  
The ESPN 30 for 30 about Tonya and Nancy is far better than this and gets far into certain issues. Like how shallow figure skating is, where looks matter for more than how good you are.
 
2014-02-23 07:47:25 PM  
Heh, footage of Tom Brokaw reporting on the Tonya Harding story while standing in front of what looked like damage from the Northridge quake.  Priorities.

Yeah, it's not like anybody that was paying attention had any doubt, but there's something perversely amusing about watching the evidence pile up despite her claims otherwise.

I tried to record it when it first came on, and a live game screwed up the start time.  I'm going to record later next week.

And yes, even now there is strong speculation that Gracie Gold made the team over the asian girl because they wanted the pretty white girl.

Nope, the actual ceremonies were at 11:15 AM EST. NBC is just turrible.

Dammit, NBC. When the two lead peoples in your stupid little melodrama both say that life goes on and they've put this episode behind them, MAYBE YOU SHOULD TOO!

I've only seen parts of the ESPN one, and yeah, just small parts looked so much better. And if it's like many of the other 30 for 30 series...it'll be pretty impressive.
 
2014-02-23 08:19:46 PM  
Also, damn Nancy still looks damn good.
 
2014-02-23 08:20:30 PM  
At this point, it's gonna be a race to see if we see cars on the track at Daytona before the end of the Great Closing Ceremony Fluff Piece of 2014.

Yes, some of you whippersnappers might think MILF, I just see a pretty woman my age....or close enough to not be creepy.

Seven years younger than me.  Quite appropriate at our ages.  Except for the whole "both of us are married to other people" thing.
