The Olympic news NBC missed

NBC had a record amount of Olympic coverage during the last two weeks, including the most coverage ever of a swimmer's mother cheering in the stands.

But lost in all the coverage:

A semi-naked man was detained by police as he tried to disrupt the Olympic show jumping competition wearing a tutu and women's underwear.

The complete story is here, including how the man, "described as a portly middle-aged foreigner," ran into the equestrian arena and began to prance around like a horse.

Outrageous. But it still wasn't as offensive to the Olympic ideal as this.

And hey, maybe that guy's tutu outfit could be the prototype for the new table tennis outfits.
