While NBC’s Olympics coverage has been somewhat inadequate in many people’s eyes, I have found a great source for all things Olympics: Samuel L. Jackson’s Twitter feed.
The actor and Bad Ass Motherfucker has been prolific since the start of the games, giving Bob Costas a run for his money with his insightful commentary on events ranging from aquatics to weightlifting. In fact, if NBC wants to boost ratings, they might want to consider flying Jackson out to London to do their color commentary. I know I would be more interested in the badminton game throwing scandal with Sam there to yell, “YES THEY DESERVED TO DIE, AND I HOPE THEY BURN IN HELL!”
Anyway, here are some highlights from Samuel L Jackson’s Olympic tweets.
