Belleville man watches olympics

by Acedtect

(BELLEVILLE, IL) – Olympic torchNBC executives showed up with gifts at the house of Doyle File yesterday after learning the construction worker had watched several hours of olympic programming.

“We were just thrilled to hear Mr. File watched and enjoyed our olympics coverage. We’re here to thank him and reward the customer loyalty Mr. File exhibited,” said Dick Ebersol, Chairman, NBC Universal Sports & Olympics.

File, on the other hand, was stunned that he’d even watched the olympics.

“I’d been watching Jeapordy and fell asleep,” said File. “Next thing I know I waked up and some pretty girl is running around an ice rink. I thought it was a half-time show or somthin’ at first. But the remote was way over on the other side of the room. So I watched until my beer ran out.”

Johnny Weir was the only US skater performing the night File watched.

Ebersol also noted that if the US had more patriots like File the world would be a better place.

“Oh I don’t know,” said File when asked if he would continue to watch. “They’ve all been so nice giving me those Friends DVDs and that Cheers shot glass. I’m gonna try. I’m gonna really try.”

NBC paid $613 million for US rights to the winter games.
