Okay...am I the only one who actually chuckled about this Olympic story. I know it was bad sportsmanship, but really? The fact that badminton is an Olympic sport makes me giggle anyway. This was like The Housewives of Orange County or something in the "badminton world"...which makes me giggle that there is such a thing. I know. I'm bad. The player who was "saying goodbye" to the badminton world forever...um, grab a racquet and try tennis or racquetball.
