No way my ass would get anywhere near that button holding together the Holley Mangold coat. That said, the Olympics are officially open and your ass can sit around today and watch like 24 hours of coverage on the NBC family of channels; Bravo, CNBC, MSNBC, NBC Sports Network, NBC, online. Here's your events schedule. Want to know what channel to watch and when? Go to Fang's Bites and look at the Day 1 TV schedule. Let's get rolling!
Just saw this during the BBC One broadcast of the London Olympics ceremony. The German Olympians were introduced and then BBC showed a shot of this guy doing the German Sieg heil salute to the athletes. That is the mayor of London, Boris Johnson, in the background with his hand over his mouth. We're still efforting the German official's name, but he has to be important to get this seat, right? More screencaps - JUMP!
Of course you can watch the Olympics opening ceremony live. It's the Internet. Here is the link to the BBC One live feed. Don't click on that little 'X' in the Play Now box or you'll have a bunch of pop-up ads. Don't say we didn't warn you. WATCH LIVE!
We are still trying to wrap our minds around the fact that shooting is considered an Olypmic "sport". The fact that there is a pregnant woman participating in the games should be evidence enough that this is no sport. However, after looking at Team USA, we have uncovered that they actually have some lookers on the squad. Something about a woman with a gun, isn't there? Odds are Amanda Furrer and Corey Cogdell can handle a piece better than any of you. JUMP!
Remember when Michael Phelps used to be interesting, fun and liked to let chicks take photos of him partying or smoking weed? Yeah, those were the days of MySpace. Seriously, four years ago we could do a MySpace photo search and find Phelps at a variety of University of Michigan houses getting smashed and chasing tail. Now? The guy is boring, doesn't get publicly sh*tfaced and is at his final Olympics. JUMP!
Are you in college and studying advertising? Take note at what condom maker Durex has done here. That, youngsters, is how you create an advertising masterpiece at the Olympics. That billboard has done 1,600 RTs since 4 a.m. EST. In other Olympic news, one of the trains that is supposed to take visitors to the Olympic park was late today thanks to the driver calling in sick. Seriously. And finally, is this Australian swimmer fat? Let's get rolling!
There has been quite the controversy surrounding Team USA and their uniforms. Ralph Lauren and his team designed these threads and...how do we put it? They are pretty much the douchiest outfits we've ever seen. Every American athlete will have to rock these uniforms, berets and all, during Friday's opening ceremonies. It's great seeing photos popping up of athletes trying on the outfits, best one yet has been Anthony Davis. Unibrow is rocking the beret with pride! JUMP!
Team USA has been handling their business in tune-up games leading up to the Olympics. With the exception, of the Argentina game, each victory has been a cakewalk. However the team looks like it is trying to catch as much rest as possible, especially on the plane. Kevin Love snapped an epic Instagram pic of six of his teammates and head coach Mike Krzyzewski passed out en route to London. Impressive ability to catch all seven guys out cold. JUMP!
Hmm, not sure if I'd want to switch over to Charlie Rose at 10 or watch the final hour of the XXX Summer Olympics on Versus (really the NBC Sports Network)? Oh, wait, there's an arrow to the right on the XXX Summer Olympics. Great, looks like I can sneak in an hour of Charlie interviewing Portuguese Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho & get back for the clean & jerk. Should be an awesome night of TV. Let's get rolling!
Poor Voula Papachristou. She just couldn't wait to be racist until after or during the Olympics. Instead, the Greek triple jumper got on her Twitter account, and in perfect English, wondered what Africans will eat in Greece. That's it, her Olympic dreams were over. The country told her she won't be going to London. Here's the tweet. JUMP!
With the Olympics officially kicking off today in London (women's soccer!), traffic and security seem to be really picking up. For whatever reason, the entire city of London seems surprised by this. The sun came up and these morons are wowed by the traffic that the Olympics have brought. Of course the locals went straight to Twitter to bitch about traffic, the deficit, corporate moguls and more. Stop whining and enjoy the games! JUMP!
As you know, the London Olympics get started this week with soccer matches and the opening ceremony on Friday. To celebrate this great sporting event and all that it stands for, Busted Coverage will spend the next two weeks bringing you 'How Not To Be A 2012 Olympian.' It's our attempt to honor those people who'll never have a gold medal draped around their necks. It's our small little tribute to those failures who give it their all. JUMP!
Ever since professionals were allowed to play in the Olympics in 1992, the United States has been a force to be reckoned with. Well, other than the debacle in 2004. Did we really expect a team coached by Larry Brown and led by Allen Iverson to handle the Olympics well? That year aside, the U.S. has done nothing but dominate, winning gold in 1992, 1996, 2000 & 2008. Hell yes the U.S. is going to London to drill punks from Spain & Tunisia JUMP!
Ryan Lochte is an Olympic swimmer who wore this shirt that says "I HEART BREAST" supporting breast cancer awareness. Lochte is a former Florida Gator who still lives in Gainesville to train. I can attest to Lochte's love of the ladies since I've partied with him in Gainesville. The guy carried around a pitcher of Jager Bombs and was surrounded by hot chicks the entire time. JUMP!
One of our favorite sports at the Olympics? Weightlifting, specifically women's weightlifting. Why? Because you never know when one of these chicks will puke, blow out a knee or blind a judge via a zit popping from all the pressure. Not that we'd say it to their faces. We've already showed you what Team USA's Hope Solo has to offer, now we bring you weightlifting's lovely ladies. Smooches, girls. JUMP!
A few days ago, Australian swimmer Stephanie Rice shocked the internet world with her Twitpic of her rocking a revealing bathing suit. Honestly, we aren't really sure why this was such a big deal. It's not like she was doing her best T.O. impersonation, it was just a single photo in a bathing suit. People, including men, were up in arms and upset that Rice would do such a thing. The backlash makes no sense, right? Right. JUMP!
