Not exactly a rant, but for those in the U.S. who have seen NBC's Olympic coverage and promos:
On NBC, why is Shani Davis referred to 99% of the time as "Chicago's Shani Davis??"
He seems to be the only athlete to whom NBC feels the need to attach a locator, and I find it demeaning to him.
It is not a matter of NBC style. (I am thankful that NBC has been giving D/W a lot of attention, but not once have I heard a reference to "Detroit's Meryl Davis and Charlie White.")
Surely there is not another Shani Davis from another city who is competing in Sochi, requiring NBC to make a distinction? Something is fishy here.
