Even poor ABC doesn't deserve to be ganged up on like they have in your letters column. The way I see it, they are the ones who paid $300 million for the Winter Olympics and they should be able to present it any way they want.
For example, who cares if they cut away to a commercial during the U.S. hockey game. The way our team played (especially on defense), two goals is nothing. The way I dislike hockey, I consider anything that keeps me from having to watch part of the game a blessing, not a curse.
