KOAA Olympics show
KOAA/Channels 5&30 is planning a kinda cool Olympics pre-game show, "The Olympics Zone." The half-hour program will include some local stuff from Lee Douglas, plus some NBC pieces from Bob Costas, to offer a preview of that night's action. It'll be on 6:30 p.m. most nights of the Winter Olympics, which run Feb. 8-25.
I'm a huuuuge Winter Olympics fan. Luge, biathlon, short track speedskating, ski jumping -- the weird sports just come out of the woodwork. The Summer games have even more wacky sports, of course, but without the snow and ice, there's no romance to them and they're just dorky.
