Yeah, yeah, so we skipped the morning roundup. Sorry ’bout that! As an act of penance, we present our post-lunch Olympic digest:
*The Post reports that Bantamweight D.C. boxer Gary Russell Jr. will forgo a shot at the gold.
*Wonkette speculates on a link between the opening ceremonies and Ted Stevens‘ press conference.
*Brightest Young Things on Project Runway‘s U.S. Olympic Costume Challenge!
*A shocker from The Hill: Bush plans to attend church in Beijing this Sunday! Later that night, he’ll check out Lebron James and the rest of the U.S b-ball team. Lebron, meanwhile, sounds pretty confident.
*Inspirational: Mr. T in D.C. comes within two pounds of his target weight!
