As these tweets gathered by the Washington Post show, they had every right.

GJ, Sochi utilities committee, GJ...

Russia's unpreparedness for the Sochi Olympics has been widely publicized, but now it seems like their shoddy construction runs right down the bathroom doors in the Olympic village.

American bobsledder Johnny Quinn got trapped in one of the bathrooms because the door jammed. Thankfully, Quinn's bobsled training involved a lot of... ahem... forceful thrusting. Rather than face a slow, agonizing death in a Sochi dook hut, Quinn used himself as a battering ram to break through the door to freedom.

After all, he's an American! He knows all about freedom!

Well this is just disgusting.

Tom Daly (of Team GB Diving) lost his father earlier this year. After a less-than-stellar performance diving earlier today, some d-bag tried to bring him down about it. Now the d-bag in question is dealing with more exposure than he can handle.

We have more continuing Olympic coverage at Roflympics.
