Hell yeah, America!
We're going into the final weekend of the 2012 London Olympics neck-and-neck with China in the overall medal count, proving one Olympic sport at a time that the U-S-of-A rocks the shit out of athleticism.
Seriously, did y'all catch the women's gold-medal soccer match? We're so nasty.
