“Don’t tell me,” reporter Kyle Odegard said.
I had asked him Wednesday afternoon if he wanted to know the outcome of the Olympic women’s beach volleyball championship.
Kyle doesn’t want to hear any of the results. He won’t look at Twitter, listen to the radio, or look at the AP Olympics coverage on our websites. He likes to watch NBC’s prime time delayed broadcast.
My wife Nancy watches very little TV, but stays up late each night to watch the Olympics. Unlike Kyle, she wants to know the results in advance, ensuring that she won’t get overly nervous when she watches on TV.
So I didn’t tell Kyle anything, but I informed Nancy that Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh Jennings had won their third gold medals
by beating fellow Americans Jennifer Kessy and April Ross, 21-16, 21-16.
We watched both sets, the interview that followed, and I stayed up for the Bob Costas studio interview with the great duo.
Because there are a lot of people like Kyle out there, I haven’t been posting results on our homepages. I have put some post-prime time features. Right now May-Treanor and Walsh Jennings are featured in the carousel atop the GT and DH websites
