Super Bowl.
After taking the first snap of the game, there would be a piece
on Troy Aikman, where he grew up, went to college, complete
with quotes from his parents and friends from his hometown.

After the last quote, the coverage would pick up when the
kicker comes on at the end of the first series.

Most of the third would be skipped since there was only one
score in the quarter.

NCAA Tournament.
They would stop coverage of the UCLA-Princeton game after UCLA
goes up 7-0 saying that the remainder of the game is a foregone
conclusion.  They would switch back when they realize Princeton
is serious with about five minutes to go and the score just
about tied.

Wimbeldon.
The match will be preceded by a piece on the Battle of Britain--
thereby marking the only time you can confuse a NBC station
with a PBS station.

The prime-time coverage would start in the third set after
Washington is down two sets.

World Series.
John Tesh would be doing the play-by-play.

Before his first at bat, the piece on Albert Belle would focus
on his behavior on and off the field.  This will include the film
clip of him trying to break up a double play with his forearm.

Here, no pitches would be missed since the whole game is taped
delayed.  In fact, there would even be time to do a break for
the news, where someone might even mention who won before
switching back to the game.

Here, here Jeff!

        NBC's coverage of these games makes me long for the days of Jim McKay
and ABC- for that matter, even CBS's winter coverage.  

        If NBC could do one thing- at least tell us what is live or on tape.
I made the mistake of switching channels during the women's gymnastic
competition and finding out we won five hours earlier.  

        Now, with this pipe bombing in Centennial Park leave it to NBC to harp
all over this with more mush, making viewers so sick of hearing about
it that we lose the meaning.

 Ack, oh don't say that, please!
 They showed nothing, ever, aside from figure skating.
