What was “the magical hour of vacuuming”?
During the Olympics, Jill had to record in the main press workroom at the Main Media Center, an enormous open office space in a convention center. The time at which she and Alison recorded happened to be the same time that the cleaning women had to vacuum the floors, and because of the size of the room, the vacuuming took at least an hour to do. Stuck, Jill just decided to roll with it and coined it “the magical hour of vacuuming” on the show. Although she did try to take the vacuum noise out of early daily recaps, you will eventually be able to hear it.
