What's the deal with Olylmpics announcers?
It seems like the things they say just get more and more absurd every four years. Last night the Chinese male gymnast team was doing really well, sticking all their landings and such. The announcers loud response to one particularly well-stuck landing was "There's a new Chinese Syndrome. It's called China Gold!" What? What's that even mean? Did he think he was coining a new catch phrase?
Then they ask really silly questions, like when Kerry Walsh lost her wedding ring, the interviewer intently asked her, "Why is this ring so important to you?" (Duh, it's her wedding ring!)
Or they say things like, "It's hard to understand the close relationship between Michael Phelps and his mother. They're so close, it's hard to describe." (Yeah, it's almost like they have the close relationship of mother and son.)
Here's a video on another China Syndrome, but it might be evil propaganda against the Chinese, so watch warily.
