The Olympics open on Friday evening with - what else? - the opening ceremonies.
Bob Costas, Matt Lauer and Meredith Vieira will anchor the coverage, with reports from Ryan Seacrest and Tom Brokaw.
(When did you think you would see Seacrest and Brokaw in the same sentence, let alone the same broadcast?)
We're promised that we'll see all 200-plus flags enter the stadium.
