Robin Roberts talked about this on GMA this morning and she too talked about Karma. She was speaking as someone who once was a sports reporter and said that it was very common to ask an athlete that has a name that might be mispronounced to say their name. Mentioned that most Americans were think of it as Kramer with a long A instead of the way it was pronounced. And being that he was being interviewed for an American audience, it wasn't out of line. Call it American arrogance all you want, next time the reporter should call him Kramer with a long A.

Calling an old lady stupid is hardly a world class move. It wasn't a local lady either. She works for the network and it's her job to ensure, out of respect to even the great Sven, that his name is prounounced correctly and spelled correctly. If your cranium can't absorb that I hope you never get lost at the Zoo.


I was watching this show on TrueTV called NFL Full Contact... There was a Young British Reporter who was supposed to interview Wes Welker when they played in the UK. Do you know what she did????

Before the interview she prepared for the interview and was asking about him, his name, number, so she wouldn't have to ask someone she's interviewing their information.

Doing her Job

Was she under a deadline to get that interview out to a network of affiliates back in the UK?
Apples and oranges.
The Olympic thing was a normal setup where after winning to get a response from the winner to send NATIONWIDE THAT SAME NIGHT, the woman was doing her job by getting the bare min facts to put with a mini presser or release to send back. She basically wasn't doing a standard interview where she edits and such herself.
Plus no telling how long the woman had been there and how many mini set ups she had done.
I have been interviewed on tv before and they got me to write my name down even after telling them my name and my name is pretty simple.
All numbnuts had to do was give the basic info and move on. But calling some woman stupid tells us all we need to know.

Fear prompts bobsledders to quit Olympics

Tom de la Hunty took Dutch bobsledder Edwin van Calker to the Whistler Sliding Center track one last time Tuesday and asked his driver if he could do it.

He wasn't asking him to win; he was asking him whether he could compete. The coach and his pilot walked the course, and de la Hunty told van Calker to think about it, giving him an hour to make a decision.

Time offered no healing. Van Calker told his coach he just couldn't drive this track and so on Wednesday the four-man No. 1 sled from the Netherlands pulled out of the Olympics.

Because their driver was terrified.

I wonder if this is more karma
