A television crew from NBC affiliate WTHR in Indianapolis has been toting around its meteorologist for the entire games. Or, at least, one version of its meteorologist.
The crew is trying to get as many athletes and celebrities as possible to pose with a cutout of Chuck Lofton. On Thursday, entertainer Ryan Seacrest went along with the gag.
Looking into the television camera as he held out the miniature picture of Lofton, the diminutive Seacrest told the meteorologist, "Chuck, you might be bigger than me."
