Perhaps my favorite part of the Olympics is turning on the TV and going, “Huh. That’s a sports?” Awesome. It happened last night when Vincent Hancock of the US won a gold medal for skeet shooting. Gun control WHAT? If you’ve ever been skeet shooting, you’d know that missing only 2 of 150 tries is pretty damn impressive, as is winning a gold medal for being handy with a shotgun. I think I found my new bodyguard. Do you think fans jump for errant shots the way they do for foul balls at baseball games?

Yeah, me neither. Congratulations, Vinent. Now go join the Army.
