why do they only show americans?

there’s a lot to hate about the winter olympics: the snow, the snowboarding, how everybody pronounces the name of the city however they want, the uniforms, the ice-dancing, hockey, remembering how much it sucked when the olympics were here in slc, the coke commercials, the visa commercials, the home depot commercials, and on and on. here’s my biggest problem: what’s the deal with only showing americans? there are other people competing at the olympics.

i like to watch the biatholon but it’s never on tv. so i’m usually forced to watch speedskating. that one american is my favorite (i’m not doing any research for this article but you all know who i’m talking about). he’s so funny in interviews. he never looks at the camera and gives like two word responses. cbs (or nbs) wants to play up his story–the first black athlete to win an individual medal in winter olympic history–but he refuses to play along. but he still should grow out a beard.
