See Every Team USA Medal in 50 Seconds #Rio2016 [Video]

The 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio are officially over.  Cue withdrawals.  I have watched so much TV in the last two weeks that I have forgotten what the outside of my house looks like.  Team USA had a monstrous 17 days with a total of 121 medals.  I have to confess.  I saw us win a bunch of them.  But, in case you missed any, NBC Sports has compiled a video showing each and every one.  Check it out!  And GO TEAM USA!

Five Reasons Badminton Is The Best Olympic Sport [VIDEO]

One of my most-beloved memories of my childhood is playing badminton at Granny and Granddaddy Morris' house. We didn't have a net, so we used a clothes line that was high enough to justify demarcation. The competition was at times fierce, but my goodness did we have fun. Here's my five reasons why badminton is the best Olympic sport!

Chad’s Olympics Preview for Thursday, August 2nd

 

Wednesday was another HUGE day for Team USA.  Sure we suffered some unexpected upsets in archery and fencing (world #1 Brady Ellison went down in the Round of 16 in men's archery and two-time defending Olympic gold medalist Mariel Zagunis was bounced in the semis of women's fencing), but all in all it was a good day.  U.S. gymnast Danell Leyva made an inspired comeback to take bronze in the men's individual all-around.  Missy Franklin and Allison Schmitt gained additional golds in the women's 4x200 meter relay by upsetting Australia by nearly two seconds.  And Nathan Adrian clinched gold in the men's 100 meter freestyle in a thriller!  He won by .01!  So, what does Thursday have in store for us in London?

Chad’s Olympic Preview for Wednesday, August 1st

The United States needed yesterday.  We have been toe-to-toe with China in the overall medal count, but our biggest stars, like Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte, hadn't quite been living up to their billing so far in London, though they rocked it out for gold last night in the mean's 4x200 meter freestyle relay!  It just seemed like Team USA needed a great big jolt.  And they got one last night, as the U.S. Women's Gymnastics Team just put a virtual beat-down on the rest of the world in the team competition.  They won gold by over 5 points, a margin of victory rarely seen in a sport usually decided by tenths of a point instead.  So, what can Team USA look forward to today?

Team USA Wins Women’s Gymnastics GOLD!!!

Move over, Magnificent Seven!  Make way for the Fab Five!!  For the first time since 1996, Team USA has won the team gold in Women's Gymnastics at the Olympics!  And, in London just moments ago, they did by putting an absolute smackdown on the competition!  Four years ago in Beijing, the U.S. Women were outperformed by a controversially young Chinese team.  This Olympics, there was no controversy at all . . . just the gymnastics equivalent of a knockout!  They won by 5.066 points.  That is UNHEARD of!!!  Here's how it played out . . .
