Slap Hitter: Olympic’s Rule!

I hate the haters.

Sports journalists who slag the Olympics because they aren’t “real” sports, or ones Americans compete well in, or have enough slam-bang action for TV. The direction the summer’s gone in East Bay sports, we should welcome a diversion including rhythmic gymnastics. The A’s are oh-for-August, the Warriors lost their soul, and the Raiders are getting ready to play. What I wouldn’t give for a well-placed javelin.
