Via Fox News: “An American athlete who took part in a controversial black-power salute at the 1968 Olympics says an Australian parliamentary apology to silver medalist Peter Norman might have come too late.”
If You’re An Olympic Athlete And Tweet Something Racist, You Will Probably Be Kicked Out Of The Olympics
The Olympics, at least in theory, are all about togetherness and people of all stripes putting aside their differences and forming one great brotherhood of man. Things like that. Greek triple jumper Voula Papachristou, though, fell a tad short of this ideal.
The producers on the Today Show ran some footage of Jerrod Johnson this morning. The only problem? They were talking to Mike Vick.

That was fast. Ben And Jerry’s released a limited edition ice cream called “Taste The Lin-Sanity” yesterday, for sale exclusively in Harvard Square in Boston. It was decided that Jeremy Lin tastes like vanilla frozen yogurt, lychee honey, and fortune cookies. Not surprisingly, the fortune cookie bit didn’t go over so well — but not for reasons you might think. B&J’s explanation for its ingredient reversal after the jump.
