Olympics: A further NBC observation
NBC’s Olympic coverage ended a few evening ago with Bob Costas making the following observation about US swimmer Missy Franklin.
“Franklin by the way is an honor student and a member of many school clubs including the Anglophile club. That’s right, there’s an Anglophile club at her high school. They apparently learn about the United Kingdom, speak in British accents, drink tea, eat scones. Well, when the group reconvenes in September its most famous member will have a gold medal.”
Disappointingly, I was not able to put Yankophile club down on my UCAS form even though we ate McDonalds, watched Rambo movies, and called one another ”motherfuckers.”
