In Case You’re Wondering What He’s Been Up To: Cuba Gooding Jr. Wanted For Arrest Over Bar Brawl

Cuba Gooding Jr. Wanted Over Bar BrawlWe interrupt your heart-warming, drool-inducing Olympic coverage for a story that will bring tears to your eyes in a different way. In the bad way, is what we’re saying. Academy Award-winner Cuba Gooding Jr. currently has a warrant out for his arrest for “municipal battery”; the charge is due to an alleged altercation early this morning between Gooding and a New Orleans bartender. “He was apparently getting rowdy when people were trying to take photos, and he got aggravated,” NOPD Director of Public Affairs Remi Braden told Celebuzz. “The bartender tried to calm him down, at which time he allegedly pushed her, and before he left the bar he pushed her again.” So we guess that answers what Cuba’s been up to lately. We don’t mean to be glib, but we honestly blame Snow Dogs for this. And Boat Trip. And Radio. And…

Gooding might currently be a wanted man, but we doubt it’ll be too difficult for the authorities to track hm down. He’s currently in the Big Easy filming Lee Daniels‘ history drama The Butler with Oprah, Forest Whitaker, Nicole Kidman and just about every other A-lister in Hollywood. This is going to make conversation around the craft services table just a teensy bit awkward this week. Hopefully Cuba will turn himself in soon and we can all get back to some good old floor routines! Look, over here! Forget about that Oscar-winner-about-to-be-arrested stuff! Floor routines!

The U.S. Women’s Gymnastics Team Wins The Gold Medal — In London And On Twitter

U.S. Women's Gymnastics team wins gold
The U.S. women’s gymnastics team has made us pretty damn proud to be Americans today. Sorry, the entire Internet spoiled what won’t air on TV until tonight, but spoiled it with amazing news! You can now officially jump for joy because the Fab Five have just won the gold medal in the gymnastics team final! This triumph marks the first time that the U.S. gymnasts will take home the team gold since the “Magnificent Seven” won in Atlanta’s 1996 Olympics. With impressive floor performances given by Jordyn Wieber, Gabby Douglas and Aly Raisman, the team beat out both Russia and Romania with an overall score of 183.596. (Woo!!!)

To celebrate the team’s gold medal and give ourselves a little background on what winners look (and act) like, we have put together some of the best Olympic photos and tweets from these fabulous girls. Take a look and get ready to be stunned. Seriously, some of the positions they get themselves in are pretty unbelievable and make us realize just how uncoordinated and inflexible we are. If their moves aren’t enough to make you fall in love with them, these gymnasts’ fun, charming sides surely will.

Way to go, Fab Five! GO TEAM USA!

Michael Phelps Earns Record 19th Medal; What Kind Of Future Career Could Possibly Top That?

Michael Phelps Earns 19th Medal

Wow! Color us impressed, Michael Phelps. The only way we’re getting into the record books is if we gain 1,700 lbs or bake the world’s largest cookie. Now that we think of it…we could probably kill two birds with one stone with that scheme… While we have the flour dispensary on hold, let’s take a moment to celebrate Phelps’ mind-shattering 19th career Olympic medal, the most won by any other Olympian in the history of the universe. After receiving a disappointing silver for the 200-meter butterfly earlier today, Phelps went on to win the gold for his 4×200-meter freestyle relay team. “Congrats to @MichaelPhelps for making Olympic history again tonight. Glad I had the honor of competing on the same stage as you. #TeamUSA,” teammate and total sweetheart Ryan Lochte just tweeted.

As awesome as Phelps’ achievement is, we have to wonder: how can he ever top this? The guy is only 27 and he’s basically at the highest of human achievement. Well, don’t worry, Mike. We’ve given this a lot of thought, and we have some solid suggestions for possible future careers. We mean, you can’t swim forever! Though, of course, if anyone could it’d be you.

  1. First astronaut on Mars: Maybe if Phelps swims there! Haha. No, seriously. Has NASA ever explored this option? We don’t know what space is made out of, but if it’s anything like water, Michael could probably get there.
  2. First Olympian President: We know his name and that he’s good at something. The man is already ahead of the political game! Also, this way Phelps can wear his American flag Speedos and not feel weird about it!.
  3. Brain surgeon: Since there are already plenty of brain surgeons (plenty!), Phelps would have to be one of those first-in-his-field, splicing-frog-genes-into-his-patients’-DNA type of brain surgeons. There will be some lawsuits, but only until they realize they can destroy destroy the competition in the 100-meter breaststroke.
  4. Olympic coach: Okay, let’s be honest. This is probably what Phelps is going to end up doing. The way we see it, coaching is a win-win. If Phelps helps train the Olympian who goes on to bet his record, he has the satisfaction of knowing his knowledge lives on in a new generation. If no one ever beats his record…then Michael’s still the most winningest Olympian of all time! USA! USA! USA! Right, Phelps?
