Here are the top nine comments made
by NBC sports commentators so far during the Summer Olympics
that they would like to take back:

1. Weightlifting commentator:
‘This is Gregorieva from Bulgaria. I saw her snatch this
morning during her warm up and it was amazing.’

2. Dressage commentator: ‘This is
really a lovely horse and I speak from personal experience
since I once mounted her mother.’

3. Paul Hamm, Gymnast: ‘I owe a
lot to my parents, especially my mother and father.’

4. Boxing Analyst: ‘Sure there
have been injuries, and even some deaths in boxing, but none
of them really that serious.’

5. Softball announcer: ‘If
history repeats itself, I should think we can expect the
same thing again.’

6. Basketball analyst: ‘He
dribbles a lot and the opposition doesn’t like it. In
fact you can see it all over their faces.’

7. At the rowing medal ceremony:
‘Ah, isn’t that nice, the wife of the IOC president
is hugging the cox of the British crew.’

8. Soccer commentator: ‘Julian
Dicks is everywhere. It’s like they’ve got eleven
Dicks on the field.’

9. Tennis commentator: ‘One of
the reasons Andy is playing so well is that, before the
final round, his wife takes out his balls and kisses them…
Oh my God, what have I just said?’

Clinton Takes on New McCain Ads

DENVER, Colo. — Hillary Clinton struck back today at John McCain’s efforts to woo her supporters in new television ads.

“I’m Hillary Clinton and I do not approve that message,” Clinton said of the ads that suggest Obama passed over the New York senator because he was threatened by his primary rival. Clinton spoke at the New York Democratic Party’s delegation breakfast this morning at the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Denver.

Democrats open their national convention today with an ambitious agenda of selling the presidential candidacy of Sen. Barack Obama to a national audience and unifying a party still recovering from a bruising primary.
