U.S. Gymnast Madison Kocian Finally Meets Carrie Underwood!

During the Olympics most of the focus was on Simone Biles getting to meet Zac Efron, which I can totally understand. Simone was undoubtedly the superstar of the Final Five and Zac Efron looks like a Ken doll, so of course they made that happen.

One of the Final Five members which was pretty quiet during interviews and everything was Madison Kocian. One thing that she did open up about though was her love for Carrie Underwood. Carrie is Madison’s favorite singer, and I am pretty sure that Madison said that Carrie was her celebrity crush at one point. If she meant to say that? I’m not sure.

Last night Madison was finally able to meet her idol! Look at her smile, just pure joy.

Once the photo was posted, Carrie responded on her official Facebook account saying :”I’m so glad I finally got to meet you! You are so gorgeous & sweet! Thanks for coming to the show! 🇺🇸❤️”.

Stories like these make me wish I had any athletic ability at all.

Aly Raisman Gets Asked Out By Raiders Player Colton Underwood

Hey Aly, can I offer you one tip of advice? Do it. Go on this date because the heat from the Olympics only lasts for so long. Don’t get me wrong Aly, you’re a babe and all but right now is probably the most on the radar you will ever be. Unless you choose to do ‘Dancing With The Stars’ or something like that.

Colton is a cutie for sure and this video was awkward, and almost unbearable to watch, but he still did it. Aly acting all coy saying that she knows all about him. Yeah, I see you Aly.

\

The two took their little flirtation to Twitter, as you do now.

I hope they at least take a selfie because they are both adorable.

Ralph Lauren & Speedo End Sponsorship With Ryan Lochte

Speedo ended its sponsorship of US Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte after he "over-exaggerated" a story about being robbed in Rio. Ralph Lauren also announced Monday that it will not renew the swimmer's endorsement contract.

Well the hits are going to keep coming for Ryan Lochte, as they should. Call me whatever you want but this grown man, a 32 year old grown man, who many are still calling a kid, lied. That is as simple as I can put it. He lied about having a gun put to his head, he made Rio look worse than it looked before and he continued to lie until there was surveillance video released. Then after that, he lied some more.

I don’t have pity for Ryan because he decided to try and sound like some kind of hero In his mind he didn’t do a damn thing wrong, and he still doesn’t think that he did anything wrong. He said that he simply embellished the story.

Listen you old man, okay not that old, but listen here man. If you just told the truth. If you said, yes I lied, I was drunk and stupid, things might have gone a bit better.

Here is what Speedo had to say about dropping Ryan from their team.

Speedo USA today announces the decision to end its sponsorship of Ryan Lochte. As part of this decision, Speedo USA will donate a $50,000 portion of Lochte’s fee to Save The Children, a global charity partner of Speedo USA’s parent company, for children in Brazil.

While we have enjoyed a winning relationship with Ryan for over a decade and he has been an important member of the Speedo team, we cannot condone behavior that is counter to the values this brand has long stood for.

We appreciate his many achievements and hope he moves forward and learns from this experience. (credit)

I am just angry because of the fact he still won’t admit to any wrong doing. He is literally acting like the Justin Bieber of swimming right. Even in his interview with Matt Lauer he took full responsibility for his actions, but wouldn’t admit to lying about the story, it makes no sense.

Step up, be a man. That’s what I have to say about that. Can you imagine if this was an athlete from a different country, or of a different race? Poor Gabby Douglas was ridiculed on social media, she didn’t even really do anything.

Come on media, get your shit together. Call this asshole out.

Man Crush Monday: Usain Bolt

As the Olympics finally come to a close I think it is only right to make my favorite male Olympian the honorary Man Crush Monday this week. Usain Bolt is superhuman, I think that we can all agree with that. His lightening speed is something that literally makes your jaw drop, it isn’t like anything I have ever seen before, and I am pretty sure that no one else has ever seen it either.

Let’s be real, he is also a certified hottie. Yeah, he can break records and all of that stuff, but he is also extremely attractive and not just in his looks. The way that he carries himself is attractive, literally everything about him is. He is fun, he helps charities, oh and he has a bunch of gold medals.

Thank you for coming around every four years and leaving us astonished Usain. Until the next Olympics!

Happy Monday!

Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, & Madison Kocian Show Off Their Insane Abs

So real talk, how does someone get abs like these? Let me guess. Hard work, dedication, and self control? I like to think that I am a hard worker and have dedication but I have zero self control, so instead I will just look at these abs and say one thing, goals.

I am telling you, these Final Five girls are having the best Olympics of all time and now they are just showing us what happens to your body when you are dedicated to a sport.

Get it girls!

Zac Efron Hangs Out With The “Zac Efron” Of The Olympics Michael Hixon

We all know that Zac Efron flew down to Rio to hang out with Simone Biles and the other members of the Final Five. He decided to hang out for a while though and ended up catching up with diving star Michael Hixon.

Now Michael Hixon has been called the Zac Efron of the Olympics, and well, yeah he is a total babe. I could see why they would say that.

Twitter has been all a buzz about how much they look alike pointed out by many different users.

The two have met though, and it was incredible.

EITHER WAY, CAN'T WAIT FOR TOKYO 2020!!

I feel like Zac Efron has had the best time at the Olympics, does anyone else agree with that? He gets to hang out with everyone but doesn’t have to do any competitions. His trip was most likely paid for by the “Today’s Show”, can’t go wrong with that!

Ryan Lochte Apologizes For Rio Incident

To be totally honest, I am surprised that people even believed Ryan Lochte’s story to begin with but hey, he does have those dreamy blue eyes, so I kind of get it.

Today the swimmer took to Instagram to apologize for embellishing the truth and he goes into how scary it is to be out late at night with a language barrier. It is an apology, but only kind of an apology. A part of me is wondering whether or not they will take his medals away. Can you imagine? They have asked Olympians before to give back their medals, I am curious to see what else happens.

Here is what Ryan had to say.

It is interesting to see how things will be handled. Gabby Douglas basically got stoned for literally everything she did, not putting her hand on her heart, not being enthusiastic enough for her teammates.

Considering he is a man though, I am going to assume that this will be a “boys, will be boys” situation. Just remember that this “boy” is 32 years old.

Zac Efron Surprises Simone Biles In Rio!

Simone Biles Twitter

Screw the gold medals, screw the praise, Simone Biles got a kiss from Zac Efron. That is really all that matters. I would sell my soul for a kiss from Zac Efron ,not even being dramatic when I said that.

It was reported that the Today show had fronted Zac’s ticket to get him to Rio but hey, it definitely was worth it! Simone has had a very outspoken crush on Efron and he cheered for the Final Five on Twitter, so there was some social media flirtation. No word on if Efron slid into her DMs or not.


Simone, get it girl. Efron, get it boy.

Really though, they are both over 18 and both American treasures.

Let’s be real on this. They hooked up right? I mean they probably hooked up and I can’t blame either one of them.

So what would you rather? Five medals or a kiss from Efron?

Man Crush Monday: Michael Phelps

Man Crush Monday this week goes to Mr.Olympics himself, Michael Phelps. If you weren’t aware Michael just announced that he was retiring from swimming after he picked up his 23rd medal, that’s right, Michael Phelps has more medals than most countries, how insane is that?

Phelps is one of my favorite Olympians because even though he was caught smoking a bong, even though he has went to rehab for drinking, he has been able to overcome it. Obviously the attention got to him but he was able to become the golden boy of swimming again.

In four years it will be weird to not see Phelps diving into the pool, but just in case you forgot, he said back in 2012 that he was going to retire, obviously that wasn’t true. So maybe if the price is right he will be back!

Congrats to Phelps on being the most decorated Olympian of all time, for being a new father, and for being engaged to Miss. California. I am sure that every four years we will see you now hosting some Olympics show or something like that.

Happy Monday!

Zac Efron Cheers On The Final Five!

I think that you all know why I am posting this, right? Because Zac Efron is absolute perfection and so are the girls from the Final Five. all six people in this photo are national treasures so it had to be shared.

Maybe at 25, I should try and find something I am good at in the Olympics so Zac Efron will tweet a picture of himself holding a heart in front of me, that would be pretty awesome.

For the record a bunch of celebrities tweeted out their support to the team, it’s just, well Zac so I had to share.
