An American sprinter broke his leg during a relay race, but did not quit. Now the U.S. has a shot at the gold. "I felt it break. I heard it. I even put out a little war cry, but the crowd was so loud you couldn't hear it. I wanted to just lie down. It felt like somebody literally just snapped my leg in half." // Runner Usain Bolt is pretty much the world's biggest rock star right now, and he knows it. And he says he has no respect for Carl Lewis. // Bobby Petrino, the disgraced University of Arkansas coach who got fired after crashing his motorcycle with his secret mistress on the back of it, got all teary-eyed on ESPN yesterday. Dave and Luke are skeptical of his remorsefulness. // A new perfume claims to not just make you smell nice, but to also help you lose weight.
