Ireland's Cian O'Connor [an Equestrian] had a rail down in the first round with Waterford Crystal and was one of only two riders to jump clean in the second to win the gold.
"I'm going to celebrate with a Guinness,'' O'Connor said.
Wow, didn't see that one coming.

I'm going political for a moment (again).
I will turn to my fiery liberal upbringing to attack a travesty I've never seen (except once, in 2000, but do not take this as an endorsement or a lambasting of Hillary Clinton; New York can decide on its own whether it needs her or not).
Alan Keyes is running for the Senate in Illinois. Illinois is my home, and I am insulted that such a man would run. Fine, I hate his politics (pro-life, anti-gay bigot fucker), but those aren't the reasons I will be fighting for his opponent. The biggest reason I will vote for Barack Obama (other than the fact that he's a good, well-spoken individual with highly liberal tendencies).
Keyes does not know a thing about Illinois. He is a man who sounds like a reverend but works for white corporations and Republicans. He's been doing those honkies' dirty work for years. I bet he'd be scared by all the black people on the Red Line when he first comes here.
Keyes has recently set up residency in Calumet City (a white liberal suburb). I, for one, intend to make him move out as soon as possible (yet peacefully) by giving him a hearty old FUCK YOU in the ballot box.
I fully endorse Barack Obama for US Senate from Illinois in 2004. And President in 2008. And UN Chairman in 2012.
