NBC’s Bob Costas Goes Silent to Honor ‘Munich Massacre’ Victims [Video]

For weeks, NBC broadcaster Bob Costas promised as much as one minute of silence to pay tribute to the eleven Israeli athletes and coaches who were killed by Palestinian terrorists at the 1972 Munich Olympics.

Costas, like a lot of people, is stunned that the I.O.C. has refused to honor their memory during the opening ceremony.  The I.O.C. claimed it wasn’t the time or place.  If the event that garners the most eyeballs isn’t the time or place, I don’t know what is!

Costas lived up to his promise as the 2012 Israeli Olympic athletes were introduced.  The five second silence, an eternity on television, gave me chills.  Way to go, Bob!
