The Olympics Will Guilt You Into Tuning In

There are plenty of compelling narratives to go around this Olympics, and if what you need to really get into the spirit of competition is a little drama, NBC's got you covered because network television has figured out that Clash of Nations is just too bellicose a sell for the summer games. Far better, figure the TV producers, to inject a little human suffering into each competition, that way viewers will feel guilty for not tuning in and supporting a one-armed gymnast whose parents made her do meth with them, and whose body, btw, is riddled with cancer.
