It was a very up-and-down day for U.S. Olympians in Beijing. But we're always up here at the 10 Spot:
• IOC president Jacques Rogge blasted Jamaican track star Usain Bolt for celebrating too much at the end of the 100 meters. Rogge says he hadn't seen such a brazen display since the latest round of IOC bribe-taking.
• The U.S. women's soccer team squeaked by Brazil 1-0 to win the gold medal. Actually, the Brazilians dominated much of the game, just as they did while losing the gold medal to the Americans four years ago in Athens. But hey, close only counts in horseshoes, hand grenades, and age limits for Chinese gymnasts.
• Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh won the gold medal in beach volleyball Thursday morning in Beijing. But if you missed it, don't worry -- NBC will replay it continuously the rest of the week in primetime. Have we mentioned they're wearing bikinis? Hubba-hubba!
• The U.S. dropped the baton in both the men's and women's 4x100 meter relays. Though I guess if they were good stick-handlers, they'd be playing hockey.
• Mark Spitz says he and Michael Phelps would tie if they were both in their primes. Uh oh, we all know how ties are decided in the Olympics -- gold goes to the Chinese.
• NBA analyst Charles Barkley will reportedly have a televised colonoscopy. Frankly, that's a lot more "insider access" than I want.
