It's finally time to get off the couch and get back to work. That's right, the Olympics are over, nothing went horribly wrong, everybody was smitten with being at the sites of the original games, and Team USA cleaned up (with medals - SFist knows what you're thinking). And as you all know, we here in the Bay Area love our weird Olympics sports - and the not so weird ones, too.

First of all, SFist would like to point out that we've been rooting for Andre Ward since day one, when no one gave him a chance against the powerful boxers from the former USSR. He'll be bringing back
the first individual gold for Oakland since 1968. We've also highlighted the story of Tammy Crow, synchronized swimmer, recently convicted of vehicular manslaughter - with her help, the team managed a bronze, remarkable considering she'll soon start having to serve her ninety-day sentence.

All told, Olympians with Bay Area connections managed to win seven golds, five silvers and four bronze medals - tying host Greece for 17th place in the medal standings. SFist would like to point out that San Francisco has never had the opportunity to host the Olympics. Come on, International Olympic Committee, we have a great climate for athletics, all the facilities for watersports you could ever want, and we love Santiago Calatrava! I'm looking at the members of the National Social Register, EssEff chapter, to come up with some of that bribe money for 2016.
