It’s Friday!

Remember that song the girl sang on YouTube? It’s like that.

The curious case of Ryan Lochte & his American swimming buddies gets curiouser.

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - AUGUST 18:  U.S. Olympic swimmers Gunnar Bentz (L) and Jack Conger are mobbed by the media and onlookers while leaving the police station after questioning on August 18, 2016 in Rio de Janiero, Brazil. Ryan Lochte, Gunnar Bentz, Jack Conger and Jimmy Feigen were involved in an altercation at a gas station on Sunday, according to published reports.  Bentz and Conger were detained by Brazilian authorities last night while attempting to fly out of Brazil. Their claims of being victims of a late-night robbery are being questioned by police.

Are you calling it  or ? Either way, as weird as it got on Wednesday, it got even weirder on Thursday.

As a refresher, Ryan Lochte and three other American swimmers told reporters that they had been robbed at gunpoint in Brazil. Lochte bailed out of town before the police could speak with him but swimmers Gunnar Bentz and Jack Conger were detained before they could leave the country. Then the security footage was released and, oops, turns out they made the whole story up.

The details changed quite a few times Thursday but we eventually learned that the swimmers vandalized a gas station and then were confronted by security guards who pulled guns on them.  That contradicts the initial statement of the Brazilian police, who said guns were not pointed at the swimmers, when they accused Lochte & Co. of filing a false police report.

Now, Brazilian authorities are considering whether or not to charge Lochte & Jimmy Feigen. Meanwhile, Lochte is safely back in America and doing TV interviews where he lies about what happened and getting ethered by sports media folks.

Who knows what other changes to the story today will bring? Whatever it is, we know it’s going to bring more jokes with it…

Usain Bolt wins third-consecutive Olympic 200m easily

They say the 200M is what determines who truly is the fastest person in the world. Well then, for the third-straight Olympics, that person would be Usain Bolt. Not only that, but he did it with relative ease…

It’s also a fantastic year for Jamaican runners in general. They became the first nation to ever sweep the men’s and women’s 100m and 200m in the same Olympics. That’s got fans like Kendra Hansey’s mom pulling out all the stops to celebrate. And by all the stops, we mean the pot lids.

Quick hits

– Tom Brady cut his thumb, which is officially the worst thing to happen to him this year.

– Sure its the preseason but RGIII to Terrelle Pryor looks like a pretty good combo from here.
