The sad thing about this post is that 90% of people lack this kind of self-reflection, self-irony even more.

I was born in 2002, and I don't understand how someone so young could already be in Rio.

I heard the water temperature is lower in professional swimming pools. 15C or so?

I'm the Michael Phelps of not knowing when the Olympics are, apparently it's when there's an election.

Seriously, I think this is the worst coverage of the Olympics ever. I didn't even want to watch the Gymnastics after I heard we won (even though I knew we would anyway). Show the stuff live and replay it later during prime time like they have for every other Olympics. I cant stand watching the replay of sports. Fricken Corporate Media.

Then if there's a recount they can have the Hamburglar run in and grab the medal back.

You'd think that advertisers would have figured out by now that NO ONE runs out and buys their product just because they interrupted what we're watching. If anything? I remember that! "Oh hey, you cut in on that Becky Lynch match I was watching the other night... I'll buy from your competitor instead of you".
