#LondonOlympics2012 #Jamaica Usain Bolted to Gold in the 200 meter dash in 19.32 seconds on Thursday night! He added the 200 meter Gold to the 100 meter Gold he won on Sunday, and duplicated his performance from #Beijing2008Olympics! The Jamaicans are going crazy in Kingston [Video], and #Bolt tacked back at #USA 9-time #Olympic Gold medalist Carl Lewis, who said he was on roids. Also, Big names are starting to take sides in the Bolt-Lewis scenario!
“We knew we were not going to come home without another gold medal,’’ said Delran, N.J.’s, Carli Lloyd, who scored both US goals.
“Dreams do come true if you believe in yourself,’’ Abby Wambach said. “We all have such an extreme belief in each other. When you lose a World Cup in the heartbreaking way we did last summer, your team can go one way or another. Our team chose the right path.’’ - nypost
#Jersey Carli Lloyd scored two goals and lifted #USA Women’s soccer to Gold over #Japan, 2-1, in the finals match on Thursday! It was her third and fourth goal of the #LondonOlympis, and surely she will get noteriety, endorsements and sponsors for clinching the Gold match for #USA! Ironically, #Lloyd was almost snubbed from the squad. Check out some pics from the Gold medal final!
#TeamUSA will take on #Argentina in the semifinal game 4PM EST MSNBC today! If #USA wins, they will take on #Spain in the Gold medal final! #Spain beat #Russia Friday afternoon (today) to advance to Gold medal final! #Melo dials in on Lin and the #Olympics [Video]!
“He told me he called it foul and then called it fair,’’ Girardi said. “I said my outfielder [Raul Ibanez] pulled up a little bit. He heard the crowd go ‘Oh’ and he pulled up just a second and the ball gets by him.’’ – nypost
#YankeesRallyBehindGirardi Coach Girardi was ejected for arguing a changed call while the ball was in play (quote above)! Mark Teixeira and Eric Chavez then hit back-to-back HR’s in the top of the eighth inning to rally back help the #Yankees and beat the Detroit Tigers, 4-3 yesterday!
”That nine-game streak that was stopped today is more important than the 15 wins,” said Dickey, who allowed five hits and struck out 10. – foxsports
#DickeyWins15th Mets ace knuckleball pitcher R.A. Dickey did it again, and lifted the #Mets, 6-1, over the Miami Marlins! Just as things were starting to look real bleek for the #Mets (9-game losing streak), #Dickey gave them some new hope. At the same time, #Dickey (15-3) halted former #Met Jose Reyes 26-game hitting streak in the process. #Mets Angel Torres went 3-3 with a double, triple, and a HR; almost hit for the cycle!
