PLAYERS: Gabby Douglas
You know who is giving us a new perspective on the Olympics? Black guys on Twitter. Like clockwork, every day, they come out of the woodwork and spit knowledge on any and every sport of the London games. Today, a lot of time and effort went into ripping crying Olympians and the legless track star, Oscar Pistorius. Oh and one guy gets pissed at his dad for spoiling Gabby Douglas‘ results!
If we’ve learned anything, you don’t wanna interrupt a black man while watching the Olympics…or talk too much while he’s watching. If that happens, you’ll really start to see sh*t getting real. jQuery(function($){$("a img.gallery-wall-fade").hover(function(){$(this).stop().animate({opacity:.5},{queue:false,duration:400});},function(){$(this).stop().animate({opacity:1},{queue:false,duration:400});});});
