    Everson Griffen’s son was born on Thanksgiving morning.

    This Thanksgiving was an especially good one for NFL player Everson Griffen, who was crushing it on the field in the Minnesota Vikings vs. Detroit Lions game just hours after his third child was born.

    And while Griffen was out on the field, right after he sacked the Lions' Matthew Stafford, he lifted up his shirt to reveal a message that read, "I just had a baby boy. What should we name him?"

    "I don't know. I was thinking about doing something, and I just thought of that. You know, 'This will be funny,'" he said, according to ESPN. "I'm going to check [social media], but I called my wife first and foremost to make sure the baby is doing good and everything is good. She's good, the baby's good, so we're all excited."

    Yeah, we pee in the pool.

    When you first jump in to the water during morning practice:

    When you feel badass because your coach doesn't catch you doing this:

    When people say swimming is easy, and you know they've never tried to warm up with 17 other people in your lane:

    And this way-too-accurate picture:

    Yeah…we pee in pools.

    1. First and foremost, peeing in the pool.

    2. That obviously means you're technically peeing with — and on — your friends.

    3. Also, (if you're capable of it) peeing while you're swimming and leaving a little stream behind you.

    4. And peeing in a tech suit...it just never ends well.

    Streeter Lecka / Getty Images

    5. Hocking loogies into the gutters.

    6. Walking on gross pool decks barefoot...

    7. ...or even worse, LOCKER ROOMS. Like...we're crazy.

    8. Adjusting your boobs/bulge in your suit in the full view of the pool.

    9. Two words: DECK. CHANGING.

    10. Accidentally swallowing pool water and not even thinking twice about what's actually in it.

    11. Smacking someone during warm up and not even slowing down, just continuing swimming.

    Nickelodeon / Via instagram.com

    12. Grabbing someone in the lane next to you while you're swimming in practice...swimming *IS* a contact sport.

    13. Pulling on the lane line.

    14. Checking out other swimmers at meets.

    15. Walking around non-swimmers and REEKING of chlorine.

    16. And having that dry, crunchy, straw-like hair from the chemicals in the water.

    17. Swimming with foggy goggles — except you don't know EXACTLY what gross crud is causing them to fog up.

    Nickelodeon / Via instagram.com

    18. Having nervous pees (or poos, LOL) before a race (you're nervous AND trying to stay super hydrated.)

    19. Permanently having goggle marks around your eyes.

    20. Having hairy legs all season...

    21. ...and then enjoying your shaved legs a little too much when it came to championship season.

    22. Constantly being nearly naked around all your best friends.

    23. And finally, stuffing your face after every practice and meet because DUH, you're a swimmer and your stomach is a bottomless pit.

    Shaquille O’Neal, who played with, and against Kobe:

    “What really made him special was his determination. I remember having a conversation with Kobe when he said, ‘I want to be as big as Michael Jordan, bigger than Michael,’ and me, I’m looking at this 18-year-old kid, like, ‘Okay, buddy, slow down.’ But as the years went on, you saw his game progress, his work ethic progress, you saw him start to act like a leader and like a champion, and I think it helped us get three [championships] in a row.”

    Getty Images

    Two teams are widely seen as the top contenders in the Winter Olympics ice dancing competition that starts tonight: from Canada, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, and from France, Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron. At the 2017 world championships, the Canadians took the gold by 2.6 points, but at the 2017–2018 Grand Prix final — the last competition in which both teams competed — the French flipped the result and took first by 2.3 points.

    Lots of factors influence who takes gold at the Olympics, but one of them could be which countries’ judges are chosen. Over the last season and a half, Canadian judges have tended to up-score the Canadian skaters and down-score the French, while the French judges have tended to do the exact opposite.

    Canada's Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue compete in the free dance segment of the figure skating team event during the Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic Games at the Gangneung Ice Arena in Gangneung on Feb. 12.

    Aris Messinis / AFP / Getty Images

    Last week, BuzzFeed News published an exclusive statistical analysis showing that a full third of figure skating judges selected for the Olympics showed a pattern of home-country preference so strikingly consistent that the odds of it occurring by random chance are less than 1 in 100,000.

    Data alone can’t explain why these patterns emerged. Judges might not even be aware that their scoring shows a consistent pattern, and their judging could simply reflect a preference for a regional style of skating.

    In Pyeongchang, ice dancing judges will be drawn at random from a group of officials from 13 countries just 45 minutes prior to the competition.

    We analyzed scores at 17 high-level competitions between October 2016 and December 2017. (You can read more about our analysis here.) Here’s what we found:

    • Each of the 16 times that Canadian judges scored a performance by Virtue and Moir, those judges scored the Canadians higher than the average of how the other judges on the panel scored them. Eleven out of 14 times (79%) that Canadian judges officiated a performance by the French team, they marked the French lower than the average score given by their colleagues.

    • On the other side, French judges gave Papadakis and Cizeron an above-average score 12 out of 13 times (92%) — but gave the Canadian judges a below-average score 8 out of 9 times (89%).

    • Certain other countries’ judges also displayed a strong preference between the rivals. US judges gave the French pair an above-average score 12 out of 14 times (86%) — compared to just 25% of the time for the Canadians. Meanwhile, Japan’s judges gave Virtue and Moir above-average scores 10 out of 12 times (83%) — compared to just 50% for Papadakis and Cizeron.

    Among countries that scored at least five performances for both teams at high-level competitions between October 2016 and December 2017.

    BuzzFeed News

    The race for the bronze medal is more complicated. A handful of teams are vying for the final spot on the Olympic podium. The favorites are Ekaterina Bobrova and Dmitri Soloviev from Russia, who currently rank second in the ISU World Standings for Ice Dance but are considered by many observers to be a notch below the other top two teams. The contenders also include three teams from the United States, and one from Italy.

    Russian and Turkish judges rated Bobrova and Soloviev a total of 21 times in BuzzFeed News’ dataset. All 21 times, they provided above-average scores, whereas Italian (20% of scores above average) and US (17%) judges have been much less generous.

    On the other hand, US judges up-scored the three US teams every single time they judged them. Japanese judges also gave one of the US teams, Madison Chock and Evan Bates, an above-average score in seven of eight performances, and they gave the Italian team of Anna Cappellini and Luca Lanotte an above-average score 10 out of 10 times.

    Elizabeth Swaney is your new favorite Olympic skiier. Trust me.

    Halfpipe skiing is one of the newest winter Olympic events, featuring high-flying spins, flips, and tricks. Here's a gold-medal run from 2014 by Maddie Bowman, for reference:

    Pretty amazing, right?

    youtube.com

    Swaney is an American skiing for Hungary, and managed to place on the team thanks to a combination of factors.

    Swaney is an American skiing for Hungary, and managed to place on the team thanks to a combination of factors.

    Basically, since women's halfpipe skiing is a fairly new event, there tend to be very few athletes competing in the World Cup to qualify. Generally the top 30 will earn a spot at the Olympics, and — as halfpipe judge Steele Spence told the Denver Post — Swaney would be up against only 25 to 28 other women.

    instagram.com

    Swaney's runs contain essentially no tricks, which allows her to consistently complete runs without falling.

    Swaney's runs contain essentially no tricks, which allows her to consistently complete runs without falling.

    That consistency is key: Swaney managed to qualify for the Olympics by attending every World Cup event she could and playing it safe with her trick-free runs.

    instagram.com

    In fact, Swaney's Olympic qualification after just eight years of skiing might even cause changes to qualification requirements.

    In fact, Swaney's Olympic qualification after just eight years of skiing might even cause changes to qualification requirements.

    Philippe Belanger, the head judge for freeskiing events at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, told the Denver Post that athletes might need to earn more points in the future to qualify, requiring more jumps and tricks as opposed to just not falling down.

    But you know what? I say that Elizabeth Swaney gives hope and inspiration to all of us who have a dream and determination, but aren't athletic demigods who started training at age four.
