THANK YOU, MARK. NOW BACK TO LONDON, THE SUN IS SHINING. NOW TO BRING YOU THE FASTER AND STRANGER SIDE OF THESE GAMES, WHICH COULD COME ONLY FROM ABC'S BILL WEIR. HELLO, JOSH. THE MAYOR OF LONDON IS A CONSERVATIVE CHAP, WHOSE POLITICAL STRATEGY INCLUDES PLAYING THE OCCASIONAL BAFOON. YESTERDAY, HE SUPPLIED THE MOST AMAZING MOMENT. ZIP LINING ACROSS THE PARK, UNTIL HE RAN OUT OF STEAM AND DANGLED LIKE A TEA BAG. BUT HE WAS POLITE, SAYING MAY I TROUBLE SOMEONE FOR A LADDER? AND THEY HAD HIM IN FRONT OF A CAT. FROM THE OLYMPIC RINGS FROM THE TOWER BRIDGE. EVEN FROM THE INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION. THIS MAKES MICHAEL DUKAKIS IN THE TANK -- CANADA'S ROWERS COULD NOT BEAT THE MIGHTY GERMANS. BUT THAT DID NOT STOP THEM FROM PARTYING LIKE THEY DID. AND YOU HAVE TO LOVE THE ROWING TRADITION OF TAKING THE MAN WHO STEERS AND TOSSING HIM INTO THE THAMES. SPLASH. IT'S FUN TO WATCH THE CELEBRITIES REACT TO THE GAMES ON TWITTER. ESPECIALLY SAMUEL L. JACKSON WHO HAS TAKEN TIME FROM FILMING EVERY MOVIE IN THE PLANET, TO COMMENT ON EVERY OLYMPIC SPORT ON THE PLANET. HE APPEARS TO BE GLUED TO THE TV SET. AND YOU HAVE TO DO IT IN A "PULP FICTION"/"SNAKES ON A PLANE" VOICE. UH-OH. POMMEL HORSE NEXT. THAT'S LIKE BALANCE BEAMS FOR DUDES. AND THERE'S SALTY LANGUAGE IN THERE, WHICH YOU WANT FROM SAMUEL L. JACKSON. THERE'S A LOT OF, I WANT THIS MOTHER -- POMMEL HORSE OUT OF THESE MOTHER -- OLYMPICS. YOU CAN FOLLOW OUR STREAM ON TWITTER. WE'LL KEEP YOU PLUGGED IN. THE MAN DOES A LOT WITH 140 CHARACTERS. ESPECIALLY WHEN BILL WEIR READS THEM BACK. YEAH. YOU KNOW WHO IS ALSO A GOOD
