The 2020 Olympic Games have been as strange and unpredictable as expected. It is just not quite the same experience without fans.
Nonetheless, the weirdness has brought quite a few fun storylines. We have incredible mullets, Snoop Dogg commentating on “skeet” shooting, trampoline cameramen going crazy, condoms saving broken kayaks, giant baseball glove carts for pitchers, athletes making bank, and “phenomenal third legs,” among others.
This, of course, comes as the American face for Tokyo 2020, Simone Biles, is involved in one of the more bizarre storylines in sports history. It has been a weird year but the show has gone on.
The only way that the Games could get crazier is if they were backwards. NBC released a video of some of the high-flying, fast-twisting moments from Tokyo and put them in reverse. It is absolutely mesmerizing.
