Just a few more days until NBC's horrid Olympic coverage ends, kids.

Just imagine! No more lengthy tape delays, no more world laughing at us because their state-owned networks have better coverage than ours and most of all, no more embarrassment.

I know. I'm a little late on this (damn end-of the month conflicts plus an unexpected remodeling of world headquarters (see Monday's Bee-otch of the Day for deets)), but better late than never. During the opening ceremonies a week ago Friday, NBC made one of the worst decisions in its long and storied history. They edited out a six-minute tribute to the 7-7 disaster to show an interview between Michael Phelps and Tinker Bell himself, Ryan Seacrest.

Without a doubt, many felt infuriated over the Peacock's decision not to show the tribute, especially since both 7-7 and 9-11 were products of al-Quida. NBC did release a statement, claiming that they're programming the Olympics specifically for American audiences. So a dopey, no-talent, overworked and overpaid douchebag like Ryan Seacrest is more important than paying tribute to a horrific disaster. Nice, NBC, nice.

I hope that somebody will do the world a favor and take the Olympics away from NBC in the future. We're tired of tape-delayed broadcasts and piss-poor hosting decisions. In comparison to other networks airing the games, I give NBC a D-. One person even claimed that Usain Bolt is so fast, that he can run back to America in time to see his races on NBC.

Remember, NBC is still partly owned by GE, who made a lot of the weapons used on the wars Bush started. Oh! His skank ho daughter's also reporting during the games. Nice!

Thankfully, there's still ways to get around NBC's horrid coverage of the games, like, oh, the internet. Otherwise, there's still the fact that NBC will be losing at least a billion bucks after this year's games end.

In the meantime, all the female gymnasts have cute asses this yea--oh, they're not 18 yet? Never mind....
