Oh, Bay Area…
Henrik Rummel, the U.S. rower with the bronze penis, went on Reddit to deny he had a boner:
This is me and I swear it’s not erect! I don’t know why it ended up in that position but there you go.
Pretty sure I’d be erect if I won a bronze medal. Damn, need to get down to the river more often…
You know in your heart that Gabby Douglas is the most amazing high-flying hero Olympic gymnastics champion, maybe ever. But you need to understand it with your head, too, with a rational and objective analysis of her talent through GIFs.
Great article, right up until the last paragraph:
I don’t know exactly what an “America’s sweetheart” is. That is the term sports reporters and prime time packages are giving Douglas. But Douglas certainly has the potential to be a beloved cultural figure. She has a warm personality, is quick to smile, and is a little more honest than your typical media-trained Olympian. She’s overcome a lot of hardship, like being separated from her family and having her dad in Afghanistan. You lefties will love that she’s the first African-American gymnastics champion. You righties will love her response: “Someone mentioned that I was the first black American, and I said, ‘Oh, yeah, I forgot about that!’”
Yes. Because only “lefties” should be excited not only that Gabby is the first American woman to ever win gold in Individual All Around AND Team events, but that she also happens to be a woman of color.
That’s not a left or right issue. That’s a decent human being vs. scumbag racist piece of shit issue.
Thank you for this! I read it and was like “…uhhh, what?”
