Michael Phelps Beats Ryan Lochte, Wins Gold for 200 IM!

    This gold medal is dedicated to all who wrote Michael Phelps out and called him a loser just because he lost that first race a week ago. Take that! The greatest Olympian ever from team USA!!!!

    I’m glad you’re supporting the US athletes by giving them major props, but for those of us who have yet to see the showing of it and are obsessed with the Olympics, yet like to go on your website to kill time, I (and I’m sure a good number of other followers) would really appreciate it if you had a headline like, “Guess who won the 200IM?” and show a picture of a random winner, and leave it to the reader to click on the results…as opposed to posting the winner on the headline.

    THANKS.
