Setting the tone early, the show recalled the opening ceremony gaffe when one of the four Olympic cauldron legs failed to rise because of a technical problem. On Sunday, a mime — with an electrical belt — "fixed" the defective leg and Olympic gold medalist, speed skater Catriona LeMay Doan, finally ...
