Olympian Kim Rhode set history in London during the weekend, becoming the first American to medal in five straight Olympics after earning the gold medal in women’s skeet shooting Sunday, hitting an Olympic record 99 of 100 targets.
Just look at the flowers Lizzie, just look at the flowers.

    There is no way that (MS)NBC is going to show firearms in a positive light.

    I was amazed two years ago when they showed the biathelon on prime time winter olympics.

    I'm still mad at that NBC goofball Bob Costas for the cracks he made toward the men's pellet gun competitors a few years ago. He showed complete disrespect and lack of understanding toward the skill level required because the shooters were taking a slow, measured approach and using portions of discarded popcorn containers tucked into their glasses to block their peripheral vision.

    I haven't liked the little twerp since.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    Outstanding! Congratulations Kim.
