The biggest culture shock in watching the Olympics for most sports fans is seeing ads for products other than beer, cars, financial services and, um, those medicines that help middle-aged men, um, stay active.

Take this morning's coverage of the U.S.-Australia tilt on USA.

Between the end of the Americans' latest blowout victory and Craig Sager's chat with Kobe, I watched an ad for . . . Pamprin.

Guys, if you don't know what that is, look it up. But it ain't a new truck from Ford.

Here is an article by our friendly rivals over near the Port Authority Bus Terminal regarding the difference between most sports ads and Olympics ads.
