Samuel L. Jackson might just be the most invested American viewer when it comes to the Olympics. Producing a long series of some endearingly-enthusiastic tweets, Sam Jackson supports pretty much every sport, giving everyone a fair boost in morale.
Other things you might have missed:
- In order for Wu Minxia to “not get distracted” from diving practice, her parents revealed her grandparents’ deaths a year ago and her mother’s breast cancer diagnosis…right after Minxia won gold. One would think champagne would suffice.
- Logan Campbell, a taekwondo athlete, shared the story of how he overcame debt and was able to pay the $200,000 to compete in the Olympics…by opening his very own brothel (don’t worry, they’re legal in New Zealand).
