Where is John Branch getting his information? He mispronounced both of the women figure skaters' names and completely missed (i.e., got a 0 out of 100%) on the analysis of Bode Miller's Giant Slalom unfinished run. If he had watched TV, videos, whatever, of any of these events, read UP coverage, or if he actually followed figure skating or ski racing he could have easily got it right.
