It would be kind of funny if China didn't end up on top in the final medal standings (whichever way you calculate it) because their World Champion badminton players got disqualified for trying to lose that game.

Thought it is appropriate Phelps saves US.... again! He got another race coming up, maybe he can just do it!!!

oh so all the US athletes got these unibomber sweat jackets, not just the gymnasts

Not all of them (well maybe they got them, but they don't wear them on the podium)
The skeet shooting medal podium looked like this: http://l.yimg.com/os/en/blogs/sptusolyexperts/suits.jpg

IMO, it is worse. I'd rather have bright green shoes than silly rolled up pant cuffs.


As the article says "If there is one color that says USA, it's burnt orange". Ick.

Apparently the outdoor US athletes have different jackets than the indoor ones. Hence the bronze jacket for Kim. I guess we'll need to see what the track athletes wear, but so far it makes sense.

Makes sense, as long as "not using a single color that represents the USA" makes sense. (Well the outdoor athletes do appear to be in Blue Jeans...Blue is American.)
