Mr. Lucky

From Brian Williams's Feb. 22 Daily Nightly Blog: "Last night at the [U.S.-Canada men's Olympic] hockey game, I thought of Al [Michaels]. We knew watching it (I was lucky enough to be there) that it was one of the best, and perhaps the most exciting, that we would ever see."

Brian was "lucky" enough to be at the hockey game? He is the evening news anchor for the network that purchased the broadcast rights to the Vancouver Olympics. Did he think he would have to scalp a ticket? Luck had nothing to do with it. It's called "privilege". Brian should stop acting like he's Joe the Newsguy.
