Please stop Tweeting the darn results of the Olympics before we all get to see them. NBC is not necessarily sowing everything live. I'm watching this right now and you spoiled it. At least @CNNBrk has stopped doing it.

I've learned not to go to any news website until after the competition has ended on TV.

Are they really married?
