And now for an irregular Blob feature, The Best Thing About The Olympics Today:
Was it Michael Phelps winning a record 19th Olympic medal?
Was it the U.S. women winning their first team gymnastics gold since 1996?
Don't be silly.
No, your Best Thing About The Olympics Today was this quote from London mayor Boris Johnson: "We are showing great natural restraint and politeness as host nation in not hoarding the medals more so far."
Ah, those Brits. Gotta love 'em.
