The London Olympics will perhaps always be remembered for its record-breaking feats and for its historically –based opening ceremony (give Britain a break for its industrial revolution skit, it's really hard to be the following act to Beijing).  We saw Michael Phelps become the most decorated Olympian of all time; we saw Gabby Douglas become the first African-American woman to win Gold in the gymnastics all-around; we saw Usain Bolt grace the world with ...

The London Olympics are coming to a close. After all that excitement and preparation, it’s pretty crazy that it’ll be done in just a few days. Luckily, we saw some amazing athletes rise to the occasion and they’re bringing back a lot of gold to America.  While those Olympic athletes were giving every competition their all, they were also giving us some enormous laughs, albeit unintentionally. Here are the best internet sensations, memes and ... Read More
In totally standard/I-can’t-believe-I’m-even-shocked Olympic news, NBC aired last night’s women’s gymnastics qualifiers straight from Catty Voyeur City. Look, I realize Olympic gymnastics has always been lousy with personalities, whether it’s the (usually Russian) so-called Diva Gymnast or the commentators who make their own creepy sport of over-deriding and/or over-praising anyone who dares set foot on that floor mat. It’s ... Read More
British singer Paloma Faith showed that even if you're not an athlete, you can win a gold medal for style on Saturday when she carried the Olympic torch through East London. She donned six-inch fire truck red stilettos, so that she would be comfortable for the run, and a pompadour hairstyle colored similarly to the flame itself. Faith also customized the official Olympic torchbearer tracksuit into a crop top and pedal pushers. Talk about going ... Read More
Olympians aren't just great at setting athletic records. This year, they'll all take home the gold. The gold magnum, that is.  At the London 2012 Olympics, a record number of condoms will be distributed to the men and women of the Olympic village. That's fifteen condoms per person, courtesy of Durex. I actually feel like the Olympians might have more sex than that. They are, after all, the world's physical best, so they have to be doing something right in the ... Read More
Even though it David won’t be competing in this year’s Games, it seems a Beckham will still be a star at the 2012 London Olympics this August. In June, we reported about The Spice Girls reuniting for the first time since 2008 for the launch of their musical “Viva Forever,” and now it has been officially confirmed that the Spice Girls will officially be reuniting for a two-song performance at the closing ceremony of the London Olympic games ...

Though it's long overdue, this week we can celebrate the announcement that, after years of international pressure, Saudi Arabia will most likely send female athletes to the 2012 Olympic games in London. Furthermore, a female Saudi Arabian sports commentator, Reema Abdullah, revealed that she'll get to carry the Olympic torch. Saudi Arabia, which has never sent women to the Olympics, met with the International Olympics Committee (IOC) last week to present a list of ... Read More
