The article presents views of sportscaster Bob Hille on developments related to sports in the U.S. The Daytona 500 is the "Super Bowl of NASCAR," which means two things will be deafening: the roar of car engines and the whine of the Seattle Seahawks' fans. He was slow to warm to the Torino Olympics, but he was won over by the Games' official pint-size mascots: Katie Couric and Bob Costas. He feels the NBA All-Stars game is an afterthought. He is all about the Skills Challenge, especially the new one for referees and coaches.
