Light it. Grab it. Smoke it. Pass it.
No, not that. I’m talking about the way the 4 X 100 m relay is supposed to work. The last time I saw an attempted pass that ugly, it was thrown by Tim Tebow.
“USA” and “Olympic gold” used to be synonymous in the men’s sprint relay. America has won it 15 times. But not in the last 21 years. This time? We didn’t even make it to the finals, finishing sixth in a qualifying heat. Carl Lewis calls it an “embarrassment.” Carl Lewis is right.
All that hand-wringing about USA men’s basketball, including mine? Never mind.
Very cool moment provided by American gold medal shot putter Ryan Crouser. He not only broke his own Olympic record, he dedicated his victory to his grandfather, who died shortly before Ryan left for Tokyo. And 76 feet, 5 and a half inches? I don’t think I could move 16 pounds of steel that far in my pickup truck.
Remember that DeChambeau had to withdraw from Olympic golf after he tested positive. DeChambeau is unvaccinated. Says he doesn’t regret it. Why? He says he didn’t want to take a dose away from older and less healthy people who need it more than he does. That’s horseshit, DeChambeau. There are no vaccine shortages. None. Your statement is not only disingenuous, it absolutely qualifies as reckless and dangerous vaccine misinformation. No wonder you went to SMU.
