It was a horrible interview but she was just doing what her masters at NBC expected of her. I'm sure she and Bode could have had a technical discussion about his run. How many viewers do you think would care? For that matter, when's the last time you heard an athlete in any sport interviewed who had something to say. The last one I can remember was Mohammed Ali.

Bode obviously didn't have a pencil when Phil Mahre gave him the lecture.
