Katie Couric slips on ice skating in the Netherlands



"NBC Olympics commentator Katie Couric managed to tick off plenty of people in the Netherlands when she attempted to explain the country’s dominance in speed skating. Couric called skating 'an important mode of transportation' in the city of Amsterdam.'As you all know, it has lots of canals that can freeze in the winters,' Couric said during the Opening Ceremony. 'So, for as long as those canals have existed, the Dutch have skated on them to get from place to place, to race each other and also to have fun.'"    [huffingtonpost.com]


Katie Couric has ruffled the Dutch;

Her knowledge of them isn't much.

They don't travel on skates

With their children and mates,

But have buses, bikes, autos, and such.

  • I thought Northbrook was the speed skating capital of the world (at least in their Chris Collins Hall of Fame at GBN), and they don't travel by the #422 bus.

  • Thanks, Jack, for bringing me up to speed.
