Bela Karolyi for Football Night in America
This man has just become my single favorite studio analyst. Ever. Easily.
He's just so excited about everything, and I can't understand a word he's saying. And I love it. His exchanges go something like this. . .
Bob Costas: Well, Bela, you saw the US floor routine. What do you think their chances of winning the gold are?
NBC seriously needs to use Karolyi as their analyst for every event. You say all he knows about is gymnastics? Screw that, that would only make it more entertaining to hear his thoughts on Saber or Handball.
Or Luge. Yes, bring him out in the winter, as well. (Also, Street Luge should be a summer event in the Olympics!)
In fact, NBC has a darn good football show on Sunday nights. Pair him back together with Bob Costas and let him loose on football. No need to educate him on the sport. We won't know what he's saying, anyway. Just let him watch, and then let us listen to what he has to say!
I'm getting on this now! Someone help me start a petition!
