PLAYERS: Bob Costas

Bob Costas is one of the most respected and recognizable sportscasters who has ever lived and is anchoring his 9th Olympics.  Dan Hicken is the local NBC sports anchor in Jacksonville.  What do these two names at the end of the sportscasting spectrum have to do with each other?  Well, you see, Dan Hicken is mad as hell with Bob Costas taking up seven minutes of his precious airtime, and he's not going to take it anymore!!!  How dare Bob Costas, sole keeper of the Olympic flame and NBC television schedule, postpone this earth shattering Jacksonville sportscast for seven minutes.  The nerve of that guy!  PEOPLE OF JACKSONVILLE RISE UP!!!
