Mary Carillo's Badminton Rant

During a lull in the activities during badminton coverage at the 2004 Olympics in Athens, NBC's Mary Carillo explains the sport's equipment. But that's just the beginning of the story. I recall seeing this at the time, although I certainly wasn't watching badminton coverage; it's just too good for them not to replay it over and over. None of it was planned, according to Carillo.

This has got to be one of the best things to come out of the Olympic Games since the IOC ruined them – OK, maybe not COMPLETELY ruined them, but made them totally irrelevant – by kicking the true amateurs to the curb and allowed the overtly pro athletes to compete.
