PITHIER, SNARKIER, BITTER-ER: So here's an Olympic proposal: as part of the Closing Ceremonies, every gold medal winner should be gathered on the field (and wearing the attire in which each medaled) for a huge-ass game of dodgeball. Gymnasts, boxers, sailors, fencers, shotputters and weightlifters in a free-for-all. Will the members of the larger teams (soccer, basketball) turn on each other? Will shoe endorsement loyalty trump nation? Flavor Flav-sized gold medal for the winner.
Open thread for tonight's broadcast competition, as well as the bullshit which happened to the South Korean semifinalist in women's épée today (more here), and no, this still doesn't make up for Roy Jones Jr. getting screwed.
