  1. What does the asterisks mean? Does that mean those announcers will call the game from the NBC studios rather than onsite? I don't get that why some of them call the games from the studios rather than onsite.

    1. The asterisks are at the top of the post. * means they are calling from Stamford while ** means they are calling from Golf Channel in Orlando.

  2. Well I guess Ros Gold-Onwude will do reports for both men & women in basketball since Craig Sager isn't going to Rio ��

  3. did they really say how does it feel to be first black to win swim gold? in this day an age. as if that was a compliment

  4. The track and field announcers are ruining this Olympics for me. Stop kissing Bolt's ass. The are so many talented athletes competing and all I hear about is Bolt. Hope Bolt gets beat bad!!
