The diving pool water turned green! Ryan Lochte pulled a poster off a gas station wall, paid for it when they caught him, and then told his mom the reason he lost his lunch money was that a bad guy stole it! And…uh…
Other than that, it went alright. So until word comes back that everybody got ZIKA, good job human race! Pat yourselves on the back. See you in Pyeongchang!

When Kerri Walsh-Jennings and April Ross were shut out of gold medal contention in a loss to Brazil, it was starting to look like this might wind up feeling like that last season of Laverne And Shirley where Shirley split and wasn’t in it at all.

We fought hard for this bronze, and I will cherish it every bit as much as my gold medals.”
