Synchronized swimming hasn't been this fun since Martin Short and that other guy spoofed the sport on Saturday Night Live, back when that show was relevant. Of course, how is that not on YouTube? Martin Short Synchronized Swimming is a top keyword search, and still nothing. Hit us up if you have that clip.
These two young ladies are competing in synchronized swimming for Brazil. If you want to see more pictures, click here. Well, if you are into that sort of thing.
The Olympics do get started today, or maybe last night, so hard to tell these days.
Preseason games are relatively meaningless -- at least as far as the outcomes go. But there are a couple of interesting stories developing in the first week.
QB battles: The Jets quarterback situation is certainly up for grabs. Oh wait, they just acquired some veteran does anybody know who it was? But don't worry Kellen Clemens, you still have a chance. And can you imagine what it's like to be Clemens right now? You previously backed up brittle Chad Pennington and now you are backing up the NFL's quarterback iron man. Nice gig.
Brodie Croyle is going to end up winning the job in Kansas City and nobody is going to care.
J.T. O'Sullivan is going to start for San Francisco (as noted in the SBBK). But as one reader asked, where were the 49ers in the Brett Favre sweepstakes? And maybe a better question is, why doesn't anybody take a run at Kurt Warner in Arizona? The Cardinals won't even play him during the preseason. Looking at you, Chicago and Raven.
Rookie RBs: New blood Matt Forte and Kevin Smith did nothing to distinguish themselves on Thursday night. But keep an eye on Darren McFadden. The Raiders are going to end up being correct for taking him and the blame falls on all of you people. That's right. Why did you rip this selection by the Raiders? Maybe if you had applauded the move, the football world would not be in this situation.
The Yankees are in town, and really, some of you might hate having the New Yorkers in the stands. But it beats the Sox fans. The Yankees at least have some respect for the Angels. The Sox do not.
And here's to the kind soul that found the Martin Short and Harry Shearer (and yes, shame on me for not knowing that) video.
