Olympic sized coverup; Don Knotts

I watched the rebroadcast of the Olympics closing ceremonies, and CBC switched to different shots of the stage as a protester or drunk person ran up to the podium before Jack Rogge was speaking. There was only one microphone after he tore it away when he was dragged off the stage which you could see in the rebroadcast if you knew what to look for.
Who the man was with, I have no idea.

Update: Here's a media mention. CBC Sunday Report also did a segment on the prankster who tore off the microphone.

Bode Miller a US alpine skiier went to the games to have fun, not to "win medals" as he revealed in an interview. And the USA wonders why they didn't do as well as they expected they would? Miller didn't even, "get drunk the night before races." Well shucks, that's good to know.

Don Knotts died on Friday. He played Barney Fife on the Andy Grifith Show

The man who ran up on stage and ripped the microphone out of the podium was no protester. He was carrying out another "publicity at any cost" ad stunt for an online casino with a long history of such shenanigans. I hope this company is rewarded with a boycott for their troubles.

It's too bad that Golden P. has resorted to criminal acts to get attention now. As if their funny purchases weren't enough.
