Slate's Sap-o-Metre

Since the Olympics began, Slate has been running this daily feature called The Olympics Sap-o-Meter. It's quite hilarious. They're basically tracking the number of sappy words sent forth by NBC commentators each day, and - not too surprisingly - 'mom' is leading the way. I wonder how the CBC would compare?

Don't have any documentation to prove my point but I think that the commentators from the US are *much* sappier than those from the BBC. Do you think the public appreciates this much sappiness?
