    That Ledecky race was something else. She was literally competing against herself. For HER OWN World Record.

    The Simones Sprinkled Black Girl Gold Dust at the Olympics
    Awesomely Luvvie
    August 12, 2016

    It is a good time to be named “Simone.” Yesterday, Simone Biles and Simone Manuel won gold medals in their respective competitions at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. They both made history while doing it too and I was ready to lose my voice as I hollered last night.

    First Simone B. won the gold medal in all-around gymnastics, which basically means she’s the real MVP of those mats. She’s the chief executive officer of tumbling and the chair of the board of bars. This made her the first woman in 20 years to win back-to-back world and Olympic all around titles.


    And just when we thought the name “Simone” couldn’t get any more shine, here comes Simone Manuel, from the American swimming team. Unlike Biles, she had been really slept on. She was not the one who has been getting attention as one to watch.

    Simone Manuel decided she wanted to blow folks outta the water on the stage that mattered the most. And the stone that was rejected became the chief cornerstone when the girl from Sugar Land, Texas, tied to win the gold medal in the 100-meter freestyle. She also broke an Olympics record while doing it, getting a time of 52.70 with Canadian swimmer Penny Oleksiak.

    When she touched the wall and looked back, and saw the number 1 next to her name, the look on her face is THE BEST.


    And Simone Manuel won the gold medal at the Olympics. I cried watching her cry during the medal ceremony. I cannot imagine how overwhelmed she must have felt. But she got the significance


    I told y’all it’s the BLACKEST YEAR EVER. It is hella onyx. It is peak noir. The Simones went to Rio to the Olympics to sprinkle Black Girl pixie dust all over the place in Ancestral August and I’M HERE FOR IT. I’m about to start telling people that my 4th middle name is Simone.

    Simone’s going home with 2 Gold and 2 Silver. Not a bad Olympics…NOt at all….

    This University’s Athletes Are Dominating the U.S. Olympic Team

    AUGUST 9, 2016, 10:00 AM EDT

    Olympic gold-medalist Katie Ledecky has been called “a speed demon,” “the most dominant swimmer in the pool,” and even “the greatest athlete in the world today.”

    But the 19-year-old will have another title when she returns from the Olympic Games this fall – Stanford University freshman.

    Joining her in Rio will be 30 other current and former Stanford athletes – among them, swimmers Lia Neal, Simone Manuel and Maya DiRado.

    Stanford students and alumni will participate in swimming, diving, water polo, sailing, rowing, soccer, tennis, volleyball, equestrian, rugby, and fencing events this year, according to information provided by the U.S. Olympic Committee. The university has produced at least one medalist in every Olympics in which the U.S. has competed since 1912. Bernard Muir, Stanford’s athletic director, says this achievement is “synonymous with Stanford Athletics’ reputation as the nation’s most successful athletics program.”

    NerdyWonka! You’ve brought us in the same way you took us out this morning: wonderfully warmly thoughtfully delightfully, magnanimously, and sweetly, with all that glorious cake. You rang the Big Birthday Bells for our beloved Chipsticks on her Birthday — All those cakes, all the ways they showed love humor affection and spirit. Perfectly expressing the TOD love for our founder and guiding light and superhero Queen. Thank you for staying on top of all of this — the photo of POTUS with his young friend —- perfection. My caption is him saying: “How do you like them apples, kiddo?” My heart leaps every time I see it, and I keep going back to catch up. You keep flying this plane, way up high. It must mean SO much to Might Chips. It means so much to all of us who come here to drink from the sweet fountain, often, frequently, daily, hourly, and sometimes more. May all this come back to you multiplied. Happy Birthday to Miss Chips. She is sure to feel the love from TOD, written and posted and simply felt in our hearts. It glows like an Olympic Gold Medal. Thank you and sweet dreams.

    Well, the way this thing is going Clinton is going to take all of the PBO 2008 states including IN and NC, and possibly more. And the press has had enough. I can’t ever recall a weekend where there has been so much bad press for a single candidate. Not just the NYT, WP but an incredible “Open Letter to Paul Ryan” in Newsweek, and the list goes on. And the more bad press the more Trump rages. He apparently said tonight he is running against the press rather than Hillary. It is going to be a long 87 days.

    Good morning TOD 🙂

    I’ll be back a bit later but can’t emphasize this enough ….

    #TruthAndReconciliation is a LONG WAY from happening in America and rags like the New Yorker prove it ….

    Trump will be giving a big speech tomorrow about ISIS. I guess in that speech he will tell us how and when President Obama founded ISIS.

          Giving ONE candidate that much free advertising does seem somewhat disgusting to all the other candidates

          The media simply quotes him – no-one except Trump gives “meaning” to his words.

        • August 14, 2016 at 10:37 am

          During the primaries, the media allowed him to have seemingly complete control over their coverage…where they could sit, where they could point their cameras, who they could talk to…he could have access, it seemed, at will; whether in person or by phone…

          Now that his “control” seems to be weakening and he’s not getting the primary results, he is whining. This is the consequence when he obviously would rather use campaign donations to pay Trump companies rather than actually buy campaign ads.

        • August 14, 2016 at 10:45 am

          The media is putting false meaning into the words he say. Hay Donald why don’t you try not saying those words. Here the wacko man is trying to blame the media for his behavior and the things he say.

            A President needs to be a good communicator. Even if he did not mean what he says (not a chance) he cannot qualify to be POTUS if no one understands what he means.

    Morning, TODers. Off to pick up granddaughter for her solo week long summer stay with us. There won’t be much opportunity to think, rest or sleep for the next week, but will try to get some time to check in and keep up on the TOD family news. If you’re living in a hot zone, keep cool and safe. Have a great Sunday.
