Love the portions about Canada, beautiful country especially the Rockies. Interesting clip on the torch run though I could do without Arnold on the screen longer than 5 seconds.

Then started the preview of the coverage which was nothing more than a commercial about the show within the show. Those sneaky little *******s

Then came Quincy Jones and Wathephucsisname, Lionel something or something Lionel with their pitch of We are the Scam of the World, the Sequel. You know, where all the proceeds (that is an important word here) go to feed the hungry and and provide medicines, yada, yada, yada. Then just as the NBC announcers started to promo this money grab, for profit benefit event, I.......oh, look, there' Criminal Minds.


Here in Toledo, Ohio, our cable system carries the CBC. Many times we watch the Olympics on the channel rather than on NBC.
