Oh BBC!

Can't you give the commentators crib sheets for pronouncing the sportpeoples' names? Who on earth is Thomas Malliche (Adam Małysz, Poland, looks like a WWI flying ace)? And how is it possible for a professional to mangle Vincent Vittoz so badly (clue: French, should not rhyme with the country Dorothy Gale travels to)? I don't expect them to be perfect, but recognizable would be nice.

Most amusing moment of the men's downhill: the cameraman strategically positioning his shot with a white box in the way in an attempt to protent the modesty of a rather tight-suited Bode Miller in the start gate. Mind you, the "spiderman" element of the US men's suits is always entertaining. Someone needs to tell them that a Superman costume doesn't actually give one the power of flight.
