Yea maybe, but since he is so involved with the winter Olympics, you'd think he'd be a bit more professional about it even if he hasn't seen it or understood it. Yea, he was just kidding around but again I think he does a disservice to the sport because there are, unfortunately, a lot of people who don't understand it and like and follow what Costas has to say. Linking it to the already-despised-by-certain-demographics Jackass show just re-affirms any suspicion they had about the sport already.
