HOME AWAY FROM HOME: The P&G House was featured on this morning’s episode of NBC’s “Today,” with NBC’s Jenna Bush Hager noted it has become a "home away from home for the families of the 10,000 competing athletes during the Games.” Bush Hager was given a tour of the house by Roslyn Eaton, mother of U.S. decathlete Ashton Eaton.
