Dept. of Irony: Team USA, Sponsored by BP

Rebecca Soni – U.S. Olympic Gold MedalistThe U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Teams receive no federal funding. I understand they need to raise money and can't be too choosy about the sources.

But ... the 2012 and 2016 U.S. teams are sponsored by BP? Really?

BP is already deploying team members to the Gulf Coast on public relations trips.

As Karen Dalton Beninato tweeted, "Hence this year's 50 Yard Oil Slide."

And Robert Loerzel tweeted, "New event: The Junk Shot."
