Spread the word: Google+ has the best Olympic stream anywhere!

I've checked Twitter, the RSS feeds, the official Olympic Committee feeds, the various global networks and news channels. And I'm certain that the best way to monitor the Olympic games is Google+ with a simple search stream. 

Here's the search stream: 

https://plus.google.com/s/Olympic%20OR%20Olympics%20OR%20medal%20OR%20%22London%202012%22

Just watch it go by, and occasionally click the "are you there?" link. 

Here's why Google+ wins the gold medal for following the Olympics: 

1. The stream has pictures you can see without clicking. 

2. The stream has content you can read without clicking. 

3. You can "spin out" posts to read later by using keystrokes. (Press and hold the "command" key on a Mac or the "Ctrl" key on a PC, then click on the time of a post to spin it out in a separate tab for reading later.)

4. You can comment, and engage in instant global conversations.

5. You get all kinds of content, from personal experiences to news to videos to opinions. 

6. It's live, real-time coverage. 

7. You can literally hit the "Pause" button and go make yourself a sandwich.

Spread the word, people. Google+ is MUCH better than Twitter for keeping up with the games!

Life's a bitch; until you get tired of its shit, string it up by its ankles and beat it up for its lunch money.

A great comic series, one that I'm hoping to get in the near future.
