both my wife and I are sad about this. I guess we are anachronisms.

Totally cool with this-- let some little kids, old war veterans, 85 year old former pros be the presenters.
The adulation pretty people get solely due to being young and genetically blessed seems shallow.

Not going to lie, I rather enjoyed Pez's "Daily Distractions" and was always a fan of the PMU podium girls used for the green jersey presentation. But let's face it, this stuff will likely be looked back on in 50 years much like how we cringe now seeing ads from the 40's and 50's.

I like Dale's idea about bringing in kids, veterans and dignitaries. I'd also like to add puppies. Can't go wrong with cute puppies. Would probably get each one adopted this way!
