NBC announcers for 2010 Winter Olympics

First of all it’s been awesome to be able to watch the winter Olympics even though we don’t have cable.** But, anyways. Seriously NBC???

“You’ve come along way baby!”

WTF! What would you show regarding a 17 year old athlete who was male as compared to female? I bet you would say something else. I bet you would have something more than her as a 3 year old in skates. I bet you wouldn’t credit her successes to that of her parents. gah!

It’s totally awesome to see a 17 year old (from any country) at the Olympics, especially a woman*. These athletes deserve respect. And “You’ve come a long way baby!” is not respect.

**Fixed missing words. I r gud with words.
