Vladimir Posner On NBC Sunday Night Football?

24 Feb

The 31st Winter Olympiad of Sochi 2014 in Russia, had an NBC Sports Sunday Night Football Theme to it, with Bob Costas  as In Studio Host, Al Michaels & Chris Collingswood in the Broadcast Booth, with Special Guest Commentator Vladimir Posner.
Vladimir Posner was the English Language Voice of the Now Defunct Union of The Soviet Socialist Republics(USSR). Later, he was a Show Host on CNBC and MSNBC.
Interesting NBC Booth! I can imagine this trio on the Premiere of Sunday Night Football.
Only Time Will Tell!



This “Winter” Olympiad In Miami?

11 Feb

Considering that Sochi, a Black Sea Resort will have temperatures near the 16°C(63°F) by Thursday, it is conceivable that in 2022 that the Winter Olympiad will take place in either Miami, FL, or Tempe, AZ.


Why NOT! This has an analogy. A Warm Weather Site for a Winter Olympiad is like a Cold Weather Site for the Super Bowl. This past Super Bowl XLVIII took place in the NY-NJ Metropolitan Area, with a Kickoff Time Temperature of 12°C(50°F). The next day was below Zero Celsius and in the Teens Fahrenheit. In short, Winter is Winter with a few quirks in the New York Metro Television Market, #1 in the USA.

Next Stop may be San Diego, considering Sochi’s Temperate Climate as a Black Sea Resort. NBC actually owns a station there. And there is this Fantastic Zoo.

It’s a thought.
