More Olympic Musings- Two goofs in a row. The NBC announcer introduced ice dancer Naomi Lang as the first Native American Olympian since Jim Thorpe. Two others come to mind real quick. If memory serves, Billy Mills was a gold-medal winner in the 10K run in the 1960's (1964?) and Sen. Ben Nighthorse Campbell was an Olympian in Judo about that time as well. The other goof was a blank computer screen (with the exemption of the bottom row) that stayed up for about 20 seconds before being removed after Lang and her partner got done. [update-Google confirms both Mills and Campbell (he captained the Judo team)]
