winter olympic snafu

February 21, 2018

Think you need to travel to PyeongChang, South Korea, to take in the 2018 Winter Olympics? No… it’s happening at your local P.F. Chang. It’s on the TV news, surely, it’s got to be true.

Since the Winter Olympics is broadcasted by NBC. I have a sneaky suspicion, ABC is just trying to confuse and steer audiences away from NBC.

NBC’s Katie Couric thinks the Dutch are such good ice skaters because it’s an important mode of transportation for traveling around the frozen canals of Amsterdam. Wow, the secret is out for the Netherlands’ Olympic success. That face of the NBC Winter Olympics broadcast, is not exactly the brightest bulb.

Speaking of NBC’s dim bulb, one analyst was fired for “insensitive” remarks about Korean history with Japan. If you are going to be an “analyst,” maybe you should do your homework. Read up on the brutal Japanese occupation of Korea before WWII, before blabbering on to insult an entire country, or two countries – counting North Korea and South Korea.

Lost in translation? That Google Translate from Norwegian to Korean, needs just a bit of adjustment. Norwegian Olympic team accidentally ordered 15,000 eggs (it was meant to be a 1,500 eggs order). What’s an additional zero? Well…it’s about 137 eggs per Norwegian athlete. Maybe that’s Norway’s secret to their success at winter Olympics!
