"What about the outfits?"
Way to really honor the effort these three-time Olympians have put forth to represent the USA. Great coverage, NBC.
John: But now there's this whole sort of catch-and-release policy—
Tom: Yeah, I believe in that.
Tom: Well, I believe in catch, put in your pants, and release.

Dark Knight ending (spoilers of course)
[[MORE]]Pretty much just a direct Iron Giant ripoff, right? That and Superman’s bit in one of the Frank Miller books? Also I thought they had the balls to kill him and the emotional heft of the scene was cheapened when they didn’t.
