A Pick 6 of NFL teams that could use Usain Bolt

Now that the Olympics are over, there's one very fast young man looking at one very long layoff before resurfacing in Rio in four years. Hey, Usain Bolt! You want to play in the NFL?

Usain Bolt was mentioned the most on Twitter during the London Olympics

Throughout the 16 days of the London Olympics, roughly 150 million tweets were sent. That is an astronomical number for slightly over a two-week stretch.

London Olympics Were Near-Perfect, Should Be Given a 9.5 by the Judges

It wasn't quite the same as landing a rover the size of an SUV on a planet hundreds of millions of miles away, but the success of the London Games still managed to impress as a logistical and sporting feat. From Usain Bolt's transcendent brilliance to Michael Phelps finishing his legendary career, and everything in between, the 2012 Olympics were an exemplar of athleticism...
