The Latest in Buzz Lite


Good morning, friends, and welcome to this week’s Buzz Lite.

It’s Day 13 of the Olympics, and here’s your brief update: America. The United States expands its lead in the medal count with 93: 30 gold, 32 silver, and 31 bronze. To put that in perspective, the United States has as many gold medals as Germany, the nation in sixth place in the medal count, has total medals.

Today, our Buzz Lite is decidedly #ThrowbackThursday. Check out old SaturdayNight Live skits about the Olympics and a classic about preparing for a decathlon.

And don’t miss the SNL sketches parodying “The McLaughlin Group.” John McLaughlin, who was a pioneer in political television, was a good sport about them – see the Halloween edition below. As a kid, I remember running to the TV on Sunday afternoons to watch his show on public television. I will miss the show and his bellowing signoff – BYE BYE!

Enjoy your Thursday and today’s Buzz Lite.
