Ryan Locthe appreciates the simple things in life. Simple things like stupid glasses, and bad nicknames.

Two things.

Who calls him 'Reezy'?

And is 'Jeah' the best catchphrase you could come up with?

If the answer to those questions is 1. COOL PEOPLE and 2. WHAT DO YOU MEAN IT IS A VERY MATURE AND EXCELLENT CATCHPHRASE, then by all means buy the glasses here.

Traithlon Photo-Finish Gets Appealed

Remember that crazy photo-finish from last week?

Sweden has appealed for a gold medal after Lisa Norden finished the women's triathlon at the same time as Nicola Spirig of Switzerland in a history near-tie for the grueling race.

The Swedes argue that it is not possible to distinguish exactly who is further in the photo, and that both athletes should be awarded a gold medal and have the race be marked as a tie.

We here at Roflympics aren't exactly experts in photo-finishes or anything, but we gotta side with the Swedes. This is as close to a tie as you'll ever get in a long-distance race. What do you think?

YAY ENGLISH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES!

The United States is now FIRST in our medal count thanks to Track and Field events!

Australia FINALLY cracked the top ten!

And Great Britain remains in third, continuing their most successful Olympic run ever!

HOORAY FOR ENGLISH SPEAKING COUNTRIES! In honor of English, here are some ENGLISH FACTS! In addition to being the most widespread language in the world, English also has one of the largest vocabularies, but the letter combination "ough" can be pronounced in eight different ways. Also, since you're reading this right now, we can assume you also speak English. NICE WORK!

In a 2-1 victory over Japan, the U.S. Women claimed a gold medal in front of a nearly sold out Wembley Stadium. This game was more or less a rematch of last years' World Cup final, where Japan beat the U.S.

Midfielder Carly Lloyd scored BOTH goals for the U.S. starting with a goal in the eighth minute. Japan pushed back, finally managing to score in the 64th minute. Japan continued to gain momentum thanks to a passionate crowd, but the American ladies held their ground and kept Team Japan at bay.

With the exception of the 2000 Sydney Olympics, the U.S. ladies have won the gold in women's soccer in every Games since it became an Olympic sport in 1996. That's my kind of track record.
