WHILE BALTIMORE OBSERVES AN OLYMPIC TRUCE: McKayla Maroney vaulting in super slo-mo. A badminton scandal and a 25-23 third set in men's tennis. Michael Phelps wins gold again at the ancient age of 27 (and whether he screwed up on the 200 fly), and the Fab Five is fab indeed. What more do you want -- a headline as wonderfully ethnocentric as my Ha'aretz favorite from 2008?
added more: Mayor Boris Johnson gets stuck on a zip line, and we have the video.
added: More badminton scandal coverage, as SI properly asks whether this is any different than what NBA teams do every year in trying to land a more favorable playoff draw, with an eye towards whether Olympic men's basketball teams will be doing the same thing to avoid the USA team for as long as possible.
