    The US men did not have a single runner in the 400-meter finals. Amazing. Staggering even.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    Wow. And to think it wasn't long ago the US had the top seven ranked runners in the world in this event and swept the medals.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Here is an article on how dominant the US has been at this event.

    More of that Olympic Spirit on display during the France-Spain basketball game. Nicholas Batum. OUCH!!

    The greatest generation of French basketball had fallen short yet again as Nicolas Batum ran across the court to foul Juan-Carlos Navarro, the captain of Spain, with 23 seconds remaining Wednesday. Batum's right hand formed a fist. Instead of reaching in to foul, he threw a punch that missed the ball but found Navarro's groin, promptly knocking him to the floor.

    I feel like cheap shots and dirty play are way more prevalent in International Hoops than the NBA.

    No doubt. But with the whole world watching can't they give it a rest during the Olympics?

    So happy Allyson Felix finally got an individual gold in the 200M last night!

    Manteo Mitchell told The Associated Press he had about half a lap to go when he felt a popping in his left leg.He finished the lap in 46.1 seconds and helped the Americans to a tie for first with the Bahamas in 2 minutes, 58.87 seconds. A few hours later, doctors told him he had a broken left fibula.
    "I got out pretty slow, but I picked it up and when I got to the 100-meter mark it felt weird," he said. "I was thinking I just didn't feel right. As soon as I took the first step past the 200-meter mark, I felt it break. I heard it. I even put out a little war cry, but the crowd was so loud you couldn't hear it. I wanted to just lie down. It felt like somebody literally just snapped my leg in half."
    Manteo Mitchell is the man. Bringing it on home with a broken leg.

    When the Chinese government edits the closing ceremony for broadcast, it's going to be about 10 minutes long.
