Jimmy, who has vowed repeatedly to not watch a second of the Olympics,took the day off to secretly prepare for tonight's Opening Ceremonies.While the competitionon the field (and track and swimming pool) is sure to captivateeveryone, the stories coming out of London before it all begins arealso pretty interesting. England took "home-field advantage" by being theonly country with air conditioning in the Olympic Village. Prostitutesare being clearedfrom the streets, likely passing this amazingDurex condom ad on their way out of town. U.S. beach volleyballplayers aregoing to wear bikinis while competing in the Games. And of the10,000 reporters covering the Games, the best "boots on the ground"reporting so far comes courtesy of Lolo Jones, who tweetedout this pic of Tyson Chandler trying to relax on his comicallyundersized twin bed. Coincidentally, new Bills DE Mario Williams canfeel Chandler's pain.
Speaking of Sleeping Athletes
Not to be outdone by Lolo Jones,U.S. basketball member Kevin Lovehas been tweeting out candid pics of Team USA. His feed is worth followingfor the pics alone, especially this one of Team USApassed out on the plane. Did AnthonyDavis (Redskins hat) bring that blanket from home?
Back To The Drawing Board
Ricki Lander, the "close pal"of 71-year-old Patriots owner BobKraft, didnot get the part in that VinceVaughn movie she auditioned for. And if you didn't see theaudition, takea couple minutes and watch. Kraft is clearly the Meryl StreepTara Reid of NFL owners.
