2011 World Figure Skating Championships

NBC decided to show this event on their B network, using their B teams of commentators, and shooting all the interviews with a Flip cam. Well, that’s understandable; it’s not like it was THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS OR ANYTHING. At least, WE’RE going with our A team. Liz and Tori give this event the respect it deserves. They also pity the fool who put Alena Leonova in this:
