KYLE LONG? What the…? KYLE LONG? But there were so many better guys availa… KYLE LONG?
As we now immerse ourselves back into sports after the most recent act of ignorant spinelessness to try to disrupt the joy that defines the competitions we watch, I sincerely hope that our greatest fears of what can happen at a celebration (because, really, that’s what any race or game or match is—even at Wrigley Field these days) do not cause us to temper ourselves in future celebrations.
Three-time U.S. Olympic runner Suzy Favor Hamilton has been hiding a secret for the past year – a big secret.
The 2012 Olympics are over, and now, two members of the U.S. Men’s Swimming Team from the Chicago area are back home, basking in the glory.

So, why not have MLB send its top minor leaguers to the Olympics?
When Mitt is back home, will the offensive comments stop? Republicans can only hope so because this race is too important to be decided by “how much America likes one guy over another”. But such a factor could very well decide the outcome of this election.
“[Romney] has pushed the envelope all the way to the edge, to his benefit, and I think that Americans would find that pretty distasteful. I think it’s going to make Americans recoil, and that’s why I think he’s not releasing those returns,” said Former Auto Czar Steve Rattner.
Mason Johnson knows nothing about horoscopes or astrology. Seriously. When he was six, his mom thought it was funny to make him stick his head out the car window and scream, “What’s your sign?” at women walking by. That is the extent of his experience. Also, Mason is an Aquarius… ladies.
Mitt Romney insulted Britain’s preparations for the Olympics and inspired quotes like “apparently devoid of charm, warmth, humor or sincerity” and “worse than Sarah Palin” before cashing campaign checks from bankers and lobbyists who are at the center of the Libor scandal.
