My television and my tub have something in common: unsightly rings. Recently NBC, which will broadcast the 2000 Summer Olympics from Sydney and four Games thereafter, began superimposing a five-ring Olympic icon (along with its peacock symbol) on the bottom of the screen during most programming. Then again, the Games are only 20 months away.... Rollerjam (SI, Dec. 14) premieres on Friday at 8 p.m. on TNN.
