Do naked photos of Shaun White or any other athlete actually hurt them?

1

My first reaction when I heard that X-rated pics of X-Games star Shaun White are being shopped around was, "When will these kids ever learn?" But then I realized, despite all the hoopla about how...

Is It Live or Is It Memorex? Clearly, We Don't Care, Either Way

I honestly don't care about the Olympics, and that is trebly true of the winter Olympiad, which is a virtual cavalcade of Sports About Which Kyle Couldn't Care Less, but I've watched a moderate amount of NBC's coverage with my son because he has heard a lot about Vancouver in school and he likes that guy who looks like Carrot Top who won the gold medal in something called the half pipe, which sounds like a drug term to me . . . but I digress. SB Nation's fine Olympics coverage has featured relentless criticism of NBC's coverage, which employs a style that might be described as "classic" but might also be characterized as "outdated," with a particular emphasis on NBC's use of tape delay. You know what? I have a job. I watch a little Olympics coverage with my kid at night. I haven't seen any previous coverage during the day because I've been at work, so no surprises have been spoiled for me. I wouldn't know a live event from a tape-delayed event if NBC didn't tell me. Apparently, I'm not alone: NBC's Olympics coverage became the first show to beat out "American Idol" in the ratings in nearly six years. The Peacock Network has ruined its broadcast of the Olympiad so badly that it produced a ratings victory. Imagine how many folks would have watched if they'd done it well. Go 'Dawgs!
