If you missed the Comedy Central Roast of Bob Saget, I think they are replaying it tonight, and I'm sure it will be in their rotation for the next several weeks. The Comedy Central website has some clips, but you need to watch the broadcast for the full acts. I know what you're thinking - who gives a fuck about Bob Saget? That's not the point - if you've never seen one of these roasts before, all of the comedians basically just rip on each other, and then also rip on the featured roastee, in this case, Bob Saget.

Jeffrey Ross had the best line of the night, when he followed up "Bob Saget has two daughters in college, and three girlfriends in high school," with "Bob Saget's girlfriend is so young, R. Kelly won't pee on her." Great stuff.

Gregg Geraldo is also a very funny and no holds barred comedian.

In other news - did you see Usain Bolt's record setting 100m dash at the Olympics? Now, Michael Phelps' 8 gold medals was a tremendous feat, but for me, watching Bolt absolutely destroy his competition - slowing down for the last 30 meters, looking around, raising his arms before the finish, and STILL breaking the world record in a race as short as the 100m was the most dominant performance of the Olympics so far. I can't wait to see what he does in the 200m finals on Thursday morning. CNBC's Darren Rovell has an interesting conspiracy theory as to why Bolt didn't want to run faster. Basically, Bolt can probably get future endorsement bonuses for breaking the world record - so why would he want to lower the record to a point where he won't be able to break it again?
