I am trying to highlight memorable quotes from NBC's Olympics coverage, but I'm not sure how this one from the figure skating competition Tuesday night can be topped for strangeness.

Analyst Scott Hamilton after Johnny Weir's short program:

Umm . . .

Oh, heck, insert your own joke. I'm actually off today. See you Thursday.
