    Ouch!

    Anyone see that fall from lolo jones?

    Must've been one of those "oh sh*t the baby's in the oven and the turkey's floating around in the tub" kind of moments.

    I have to say, she's really a class act. She did an interview on the Today show sitting next to the gold medal winner and was philosophical about the whole thing. She said 4 years ago, she was crying as she watched the event on TV because she didn't make it to Athens. Then she cried yesterday after she fell - maybe in 4 years she'll be crying again, but it will be tears of happiness when she wins. I'll bet in a few months, more people remember her than the woman who won (what was her name again?). Of course it helps that she has a memorable name and exotic features.

    Honestly... it was a heart breaking loss and it made for an interesting story. Aside from that, I don't remember 90% of the winners, hell some guy broke the world record yesterday in the 100m, i have no idea what his name is, all i know is that could've broken it by more if he didn't hold back at the end.

    Bolt. And he just broke the 200m as well this evening. Double gold, double WR, one Olympics. Never been done. Guy is a cut up, but no denying the boy can run.
