Michael Phelps, Olympic gold medalist, vacations in the Maldives Islands after London 2012. Do you think the most decorated Olympic athlete, fish out of water would attend the closing ceremonies? Nah, he headed for a non chlorinated, sea water setting.

It was schedule live on NBC @ 9am. I turned it on, Meet the Press was airing. I went to the Internet to view. It then started @ 10am. Meet the Press were sneaky in the programing, got an early time slot with the Paul Ryan debate conversation. All regular shows have been preempted due to final day of Olympic coverage.
The world is getting better and better in men’s basketball. I still say the Dream Team 1992 will not have turned the ball over to anyone. They are still the best!

Serena Williams wins tennis gold, but US Flag flew away, is not there during National Anthem Olympic Podium Ceremony. I just watched this, I can’t believe my eyes but it is true.

Disgrace! IOC or London Olympic officials apology please!
