Jonny Moseley is back to defend his title from 1998 in the men's moguls final, but some of the acrobatic air has gone out from underneath his skis in the last four years. He and his patented "Dinner Roll" barely made the U.S. team. Jeremy Bloom, who delayed his college football career at Colorado to prepare for the Olympics, is the best American hope. He comes here leading the World Cup moguls standings. Finns are favored.

Note: This is part of an ongoing series documenting the Sochi Olympics from a TV perspective. Every morning of the Games, we'll look at a key moment from the previous day that NBC captured, elevated, honored, bungled or otherwise reported in a notable way, as only the most televised event on the planet can be covered. Olympics TV coverage can follow some time-tested narratives. There's the comeback tale (Kerri Strug or Bode Miller in past Games) the indomitable champion (Shaun White)

The consensus about freestyle skiing champion Jonny Moseley of Tiburon, Calif., when he was presented his gold medal was definitely this: If they ever hold a Tom Cruise look-alike contest, he wins. NO, I MEAN IT'S AN HONOR MEETING SOMEONE ELSE WITH A FUNNY NAME More from queen of the hill Picabo Street: Jean-Claude Killy presented her gold medal, then cupped her cheeks with his hands. "Congratulations," he said. "This is an honor," Street said to him. "Well, you did all the work," Killy replied.

Jonny Moseley completed his new signature trick, the Dinner Roll, much to the delight of the raucous, flag-waving crowd who came to watch the men's freestyle skiing moguls competition Tuesday. Just about the only folks he didn't overwhelm, it seems, were the judges. Although he temporarily stole the show with his new move, Moseley, 26, won't know the spotlight at these Games of standing on the medals podium.

It figured to be a shootout between top qualifier Jonny Moseley of the United States and Jean-Luc Brassard of Canada here Wednesday in the men's mogul finals of freestyle skiing. But Brassard misfired, just as he had in Sunday's qualifying, and Moseley, of Tiburon, Calif., shot nothing but bull's-eyes, giving the United States its first gold medal of these XVIII Winter Olympics.

Another storm blew through Sunday, and with it came Jonny Moseley, the flashy young skier who took the world by storm last February at the Olympics in Nagano, Japan. Moseley did this, you probably recall, by performing a tricky little maneuver called a 360-mute-grab: a helicopter that includes crossing and grabbing one's skis in midair and then landing as though it's no big deal. Most people just call it a "Moseley" now, which is fine with the man who made it famous.

This is life that should exist on the other side of the moon with no chance of ever being seen down here. Forget the United Way campaign. Support NASA and a one-way space shuttle capable of jettisoning the get-a-life-challenged people here, who willingly spent $15 a day to be demeaned and disappointed at the Isuzu Celebrity Golf Championship.

What: "The 1998 Skate TV Championships" When: Tonight, 9-11 p.m., Ch. 7 To call this a championship event is a misnomer. It is a taped two-hour figure skating exhibition, designed to provide ABC with a decent Thursday night rating during May sweeps. Eight professional skaters--four men and four women--got together in Charleston, S.C., on April 23 to tape the show. Olympic champion Tara Lipinski is the drawing card, since this exhibition marks her pro debut.
