Happy Monday, Spursland! Oh joy, the Olympics are here and despite NBC being insufferable dicks and blocking out all of the major American finals during the day and making us wait to watch them in prime time instead, this is still an amazing time. Yes, it is true that anyone who has human contact already knows that Michael Phelps has stunk up the place (Editor's note: Phelps swam a stupid good leg in the relay, thus confirming that theroosevelts does not have human contact), but if you are a sports fan of any kind then this is great. I don't care what the sport is, if it is being played at the highest level and covered well it is entertaining to watch. I spent an hour watching archery on Saturday. ARCHERY! Not exactly known as an exciting sport (Editor's note: clearly someone hasn't read the Hunger Games), and it was AMAZiING. The Olympics rule and NBC can lick it.

That dead horse, you are beating it.
Yeah, that's right Chelsea, you may have lured Luka into an affair and ruined his marriage to Tottenham, but when it came time for him to start fresh and get his groove back (or whatever) he didn't choose you. You home wrecking trollop.
What's happening around SB Nation after the jump
Do you like multiple gasps, tears and a suspicious amount of lip usage? If so, this video is for you. Also a teaser for tomorrow when I cover this a bit more, notice how these people are all English? But seriously that is a lot of gasping.
I think this covers it.
Why was there so much stoppage time? Was there a cooking demonstration at midfield in the 60th minute. Come to think of it, that wouldn't be the worst idea in the world. Just a halftime episode of Chopped out there.
