So, USA sprints past China today in total medal count and ties them up in Golds. And this before the track and field...where I'm not sure if we'll see many from China.

Also, USA basketball beats Nigeria 156 - 73. That's right, they won by 83...ten points more than doubling the Nigerians.

Sexy! Finally. I was feeling a little blue at seeing China in number one every day.

I like that it's us versus...us! The Olympic spirit! Maybe this way we'll keep from dropping to third place on the medal count...

Up till today, the medal counts I got everywhere have China first, US second, and the UK closing (though about 10-15 behind).

But now we're first!

I go by the gold count. Those silver and bronze people are losers!

I used a weighted system that allots 3 points for gold, 2 for silver and 1 for bronze.

Watching Japan and Korea play for the bronze in women's indoor basketball. I'm obsessed with the tall Korean star player.

I'd like us all to also take a moment and recognize Russian gymnasts.

That's been their thing forever. That's why we love our Mary Lou Retton types so much. Beat the Soviets! And remember that chick  in the 90's who fucked up her leg and came down Karate Kid style? Amazing.

Miss us RC is watching the closing ceremonies while I catch up on work.

From my office, it sounds like a bad dub of the original Clash of the Titans by way of an old NIN song.

I don't know which was more offensive...holographic John Lennon or every band - including the long threatened Spice Girls reunion - getting a spot in the light except for Zeppelin.  Or just the whole thing. Hideous. Embarrassing.

Iron Maiden were also overlooked, and all their original members remain.
