There was no tribute to the slain Israelis in the opening ceremonies to cut out. The IOC decided against it and the controversy and alternative tribute was noted by the announcers. There were a lot of inappropriate commentary ... much of it could have been fixed by saying nothing at all - especially before the parade of nations. I didn't know we were getting the inane drivel commentary. Perhaps on the DVD of the event it can be commentary free? Some of the commentary was needed (as American's don't know the people involved). But some was offensive and the rest was "ehh".
