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 competition on the field (and track and swimming pool) is sure to captivate everyone, the stories coming out of London before it all begins are also pretty interesting. England took "home-field advantage" by being the only country with air conditioning in the Olympic Village. Prostitutes are being cleared from the streets, likely passing this amazing Durex condom ad on their way out of town. U.S. beach volleyball players are going to wear bikinis while competing in the Games. And of the 10,000 reporters covering the Games, the best "boots on the ground" reporting so far comes courtesy of Lolo Jones, who tweeted out this pic of Tyson Chandler trying to relax on his comically undersized twin bed. Coincidentally, new Bills DE Mario Williams can feel Chandler's pain.
Speaking of Sleeping Athletes
Not to be outdone by Lolo Jones, U.S. basketball member Kevin Love has been tweeting out candid pics of Team USA. His feed is worth following for the pics alone, especially this one of Team USA passed out on the plane. Did Anthony Davis (Redskins hat) bring that blanket from home?
Back To The Drawing Board
Ricki Lander, the "close pal" of 71-year-old Patriots owner Bob Kraft, did not get the part in that Vince Vaughn movie she auditioned for. And if you didn't see the audition, take a couple minutes and watch. Kraft is clearly the Meryl StreepTara Reid of NFL owners.

Good Deed of the Day
Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith is donating $100,000 to the victims of the Aurora movie theater shooting, saying, "My family's hearts and prayers are extended to theirs, and I hope this contribution might assist in paying some of the medical bills that will help allow these families to move forward in this tragic circumstance." I'm surprised more Denver-based athletes haven't done the same.

The Great DC Sports Bog has uncovered two video gems. The first is members of the Nationals reading the very unmanly 50 Shades of Grey. The second is Stephen Strasburg, Chien-Ming Wang and other members of the Nats wishing a Happy Bar Mitzvah to twin brothers Shauli and Evyatar Guttman, who have a family connection to the team.
