The opening ceremony was pretty nice. Seeing the countries bond for refugees was very touching.


I'm tuning in for some of the sports

They didn't have to, Olympic Committee is providing 450,000 condoms to athletes in the Olympic Village(42 per person).


Congrats to Ginny Thrasher for winning the gold medal for Team USA. Beating two Chinese girls who took the silver and bronze in the shooting competition. We'll always out shoot those damn commies.

Anyone see the faceplant the leader did in the women's cycling? It was epic.

















Sad too, of course.

Reports claim Olympic kayaker capsized after hitting underwater sofa

We may already have our strangest and most amusing story to come out of the Rio Olympic games.

Paul Kelso, a journalist for Sky Sports in the UK, reported on Friday that an Olympic kayaker had capsized after hitting a submerged couch.

No, really.

The report, which immediately sparked the #kayaksofa hashtag on Twitter, was not corroborated by anyone else. Nevertheless, the organizers are taking it seriously enough as to investigate it.

Michael Phelps won his 19th gold in the 4x100 relay. The dude has won 23 total medals. Unreal. And he may not be done.

Edit: Make that 21 golds now.

LOL @ the international refs not calling goaltending on that 3. Calling a foul on Lowry on that clean strip was bad too.

We are playing lousy and deserve to be in this dog fight, but these international refs sure know how to turn these games into 8 on 5 whenever we get in a close one. Nothings changed since the 72 screw job.

Well, it wasn't an athlete. But an Olympic Officer is pretty damn close.

RIO DE JANEIRO — A police officer was shot in the head after he and two others working security at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics got lost near a slum and encountered gunfire.

I don't think it has anything to do with Coach K. The team lacks alphas and winners...if either LeBron, CP3, or Curry were on the team to pair with KD it would be different.

There are a bunch of "superstar" 2nd tier players who want to be the dream/redeem team.

There's a reason most were disappointed in the roster before the games. They will probably still win gold, but it shouldn't shock anyone if they don't. Coaching is irrelevant in any sort of allstar/Olympic type team.

12 "2nd tier" pros have trouble beating a team with 1 NBA player (who, by the way, is their backup center). And the blame is on the players?

This conflicts me ... if you are right, we are going to hear "we could have won with Lebron"

If they win ... "we just keep hearing about it"

Usain Bolt wins the 100m with a 9.81 second time.

American Justin Gatlin gets silver with a 9.86 and had the lead up until the last 20-30 meters.

The part of that race that blows me away is the last place guy covered 328 feet in 10.06 seconds which is just over 22mph.

Wayde van Niekerk, a 24-year old from South Africa, broke Michael Johnson's 400-meter record today with a 43.03 in lane eight, the first person to win gold in that lane. How incredible.

You're averaging total time, which includes the start. I'd like to see the true top speed. It has to be over 23.

Bolt won his 3rd straight gold in the 100m and all I'm seeing this morning is how Justin Gaitlin came up short. Americans are such attention whores.

Yeah, that's the only way I can do it without putting a radar gun on the guy. If memory serves, Adrian Peterson touched 24mph in pads during a preseason game a couple of years ago. I would not be surprised to learn Bolt was approaching 25mph crossing the finish.
