TODAY’S BEST BET ON TELEVISION

Colt Brennan live and in living color or Olympics on time delay? Come on, it’s football. Buffalo at Washington, 7 p.m., Ch. 9, CSN

ON WASHINGTONTIMES.COM “ AN EXCERPT FROM BLOG OF THE RINGS

I’ve just arrived at National Stadium - aka the Bird’s Nest - for the 8 a.m. (D.C. time) Opening Ceremonies. And it’s like the entire area has been piped in fog.

The humidity is oppressive. Luckily, the sun is not out because of the smog. It will be dark a little after the ceremony starts.

First impressions of the stadium:

1. No luxury boxes

2. Every seat appears to be the same.

3. Good sight lines from the upper decks.

4. I’m watching, like a lot of people, in several air-conditioned media rooms, but I’ll be out in the press area later on.

TWT FIVE “ BEST NAMES IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL

1. Darius Passmore, Marshall - Thundering Herd wide receiver need only point to the back of his jersey when unhappy with the playcalling.

2. Maserati Jemison, Arizona State - Sun Devils coach Dennis Erickson is hoping this wide receiver is as speedy as his name suggests.

3. John Mark Patrick, Troy - With three first names to call his own, this defensive lineman might draw triple-teams from opposing offensive lines.

4. Richie Rich, North Carolina - Let’s hope he’s more responsible with his dollar bills than fellow defensive back Adam Jones.

5. Knowledge Timmons, Penn State - How many “brains vs. brawn” comments will Brent Musburger make?
