Beijing flame continues humiliating journey

Protests disrupt the Olympic flame in LondonThe Summer Olympics keep growing and growing. The newest Olympic sport is called Flame Dousing. So far the French are winning. They managed to extinguish the Olympic flame five times during Monday's glorious torch procession through Paris. On Sunday, the Brits made several daring swipes at the flame as it passed through London, but their brightest hope, a man with a fire extinguisher, was a bit off target and sprayed an interfering cop instead.

Tune in on Wednesday when the Americans get their shot at this exciting new event. All our hopes are on you, San Francisco! Remember all those times you were overlooked as an Olympic host city. Now is your chance to poke Beijing in the eye. (Oh, yeah... I almost forgot. Free Tibet!) --Ryan Quinn
