Now that was sweet.

Gymnast Paul Hamm, after a devastating fall in his vault maneuver, roars back to kick tail and take names on the high bar to become the first American male to win the gold in the Olympic men's all-around. Gynmastics isn't really a sport in my opinion, because its outcome is determined by judges' scoring, but as an athletic exhibition, Mr. Hamm's performance was one heck of a show.

It was almost enough to make one forget about the defeats incurred by Venus Williams and Andy Roddick in tennis singles, and by the no-shooting, ball-hogging, defense-incapable, Allen Iverson-led U.S. men's basketball team.
