    ah, not again...like I said on FSU, I don't think the two are connected. It's NBC entertainment, not NBC sports right? two different divisions...

    I hope she doesn't commentate. Frankly I think she would be quite boring. Too careful, too nice, too "Paula Abdul".

    eta: I know there will be a wave of disagreement and dissent when I say this but I actually like the excitement that Scott Hamilton brings when he does commentary. (Just a bit too much talking IMO). I hope they hire him. Button would make a good analyst but I find him a bit on the critical side to be a balanced commentator.

    Yay!! I have added Ms. Universe to my PALM.... should be fun to watch... and while NBC Entertainment and NBC Sports are different divisions, please don't be surprised if Michelle does indeed become the face of US skating commentating w/ the move to NBC - espcially in the season leading up to the games...

    Mario Lopez? I hope Kwan takes her running shoes to the pageant so she can run far away from him.

    Well, she would have to also give up Disney which was the source for her millions. (Disney owns ABC)

    Jimmy Hoffa - What do you know about Mario? I think on paper they'd make a cute couple although I hate cute.

    Thanks for the link. I have not watched Ms. Universe since I was a kid. Definitely will watch to see Michelle.

    Yeah, Paula Abdul without the drug habit. BUT she would be great hosting something like "Olympic Ice".

    Oh man, don't say it. Put her ANYWHERE, give her any position EXCEPT one in the booth!! But I bet they'll strive to get her in there for the ratings. I mean, people have already indicated that they would watch the broadcast just to see her ! even if they don't care about the actual competition.

    I partially agree Z- while she would be a nice addition to an OI (or NI?) broadcast team, she doesn't show off her "fun" side. She's always come across to me as very "business-like".

    The smart thing to do, IMO, would be to have her promote the event. At least that's what I would do if I were NBC.

    In short, he'll go after anything in a skirt.

    More specifically, his wife left him two weeks after their wedding and annulled their marriage because she found out he slept with a stripper at his bachelor party. He has been accused of rape, maybe more than once, I forget. He is said to be a real man-*****. (That blocked out word rhymes with store.) I know very little about Kwan's personal life, but I hope she would not give him the time of day because he would be done with her by Monday. I assume she is still with what's-his-face from Denver and I hope she wouldn't cheat on him.

    If Kwan and Lopez coupled up, the cuteness would be in looks only.

    Hmmm...

    It sound like "Slater" (Mario) has certainly come a long way from his "Saved By The Bell" days... ick!!

    Michelle, run/skate the other way...fast!

    Maybe, she's going because Mario's face looks like a good place for her to practice her jumps. Seriously, I think that one reason she might be doing this is that the pageant is in Mexico, and, the work won't be so difficult that she can't combine it with a free vacation.

    Well, what about his female co-host? Assuming they are not a couple, shouldn't she be more "concerned"? the judges will probably be sitting at some bench somewhere. GO figure...

    Jimmy, wow! I never thought of Mario as a womanizer. Well that will make the teaming up less cute. Now I have to watch this thing.
    Do they still do talent (or talentless)?
