Yesterday afternoon, my friend texted me the following: “Two word: Nathan. Adrian.” Huh? I figured it had to be swimming related, as her husband used to be a competitive swimmer and, like, the Olympics are very important around their house. Sure enough, I did a quick Google and it turned out that Nathan Adrian is A) HOT… READ MORE »

Sports photographers are in heaven during the Olympics, having the opportunity to capture athletes at the peak of their careers — and, if we didn’t know better, the peak of orgasm. If these aren’t the faces of a big finish, then I don’t know what is! It’s photo ops like these that have us wondering: orgasm… READ MORE »

I’ve always found the phrase “Shut up and look pretty” awfully offensive, but then I started listening to swim god Ryan Lochte speak in interviews and had a change of heart. Ryan Lochte is Jeff Spicoli and should definitely just shut up and swim. [Buzzfeed] … READ MORE »

The cast of “Downton Abbey” — both upstairs and downstairs — attended the Olympic Opening Ceremony last Friday. They posed for a group shot in front of the stadium, with Mr. Bates in something of a compromised position. But! Where’s the Dowager Countess? You know she wouldn’t dare mingle with the hoi polloi. And speaking… READ MORE »

Gold medal Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte is kind of the Brody Jenner of the sport. Which is to say, he’s a total bro, right down to his hella ugly American flag grill, and ubiquitous use of the made up word, “Jeah.” In this helpful video, Lochte explains all the many uses of “Jeah,” and cements… READ MORE »

Today, The Washington Post ran a column praising 17-year-old Olympic gold medalist Missy Franklin as a tenacious athlete. In fact, you could describe columinist Sally Jenkins’ piece as gushing. So it’s unfortunate in an otherwise awe-filled piece that Jenkins’ made a poor choice of words (emphasis mine):
This was her first Olympic gold medal… READ MORE »

Ryan Lochte is an Olympic gold medalist. He’s also an inveterate Twitter user/abuser. And man, does he ramble some strange shit. His Twitter paints him as the Olympics’ very own Brody Jenner. A bro of extreme magnitude whose love of Mountain Dew and the word “Jeah” (which signifies everything from “my taxes are astronomical” to… READ MORE »

We were a little distracted while watching the men’s swimming this weekend — after we caught sight of total hottie Camille Lacourt. Twenty-seven-year-old Lacourt says on Twitter that he is “Cool, simple and always ready to party: this is what I am.” Sounds pretty great, right? He also happens to be a total whiz at… READ MORE »

There’s really no question about who was having the most fun at the Olympics’ Opening Ceremony on Friday: It was clearly the three adorable people representing the Independent Olympic Athletes. Liemarvin Bonevacia, Reginald De Windt and Philipine van Aanholt are all from the Netherlands Antilles, a collection of Caribbean islands that lost its independent statehood… READ MORE »

Speaking of Ryan Lochte … the dude is such hot shit at the 2012 Olympics that he’s the inspiration for the latest “Call Me Maybe” spoof. In “Call Me Lochte,” the comedic geniuses at NOC remixed Carly Rae Jepsen’s inescapable tune into an ode to Lochte stealing Michael Phelps’ thunder as the United States’ favorite… READ MORE »

On Saturday in London, U.S. swimmer Ryan Lochte — a gorgeous man of very, very few words — swam his way to his first Olympic Gold medal in the 400m Individual Medley (teammate Michael Phelps, who reigned supreme in 2008, came in a disappointing 4th). I wonder how the notorious ladies’ man celebrated? Click through to see the… READ MORE »

Hottie Irish actor Chris O’Dowd from “Bridesmaids” (and “Girls”) wants to help Brits looking to escape to the 2012 Olympics. He’s got an idea. Hop over to Ireland! Give them some tourism dollars!

Apparently Spain didn’t have the money to provide new uniforms for its Olympians this year because the country is on the brink of bankruptcy (hey, who hasn’t been there lately, amiright?), so it accepted some complimentary uniforms from a Russian designer. The freebie duds are, well, a lot of look, and the Spanish Olympic team… READ MORE »

Okay, so this is pretty awesome: Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders, stars of the amazing British show “Absolutely Fabulous,” carried the Olympic torch for a moment on Friday.
