Beer "tips" at Bluesapalooza go a long way

Our View — The Olympics

NBC announcers are terrible. Their point of view is mawkish and cloying. Their time delays are annoying.

The whole thing seems to be set up for people who know nothing about sport and don’t want to know.

The sponsorships are beyond the pale. Here in the U.S., McDonald’s is the official restaurant of the Olympic Team.

We wonder how many Olympians eat at McDonald’s when they’re training for the gold.
In the Twitterverse, the yammering is almost overwhelming (#nbcfail).
