PAPER
on the front lines of cultural chaos since 1984.

We don't know what it is but lately our cynical, jaded New Yorker hearts have been melting and we've been getting a little teary-eyed and sentimental whenever we watch the Olympics and an athlete does something spectacular (which happens quite frequently).  From Gabby Douglas' awesome floor routine to win the gold medal for All-Around in Gymnastics last night, to McKayla Maroney's incredible vault to Nathan Adrian's gold medal swimming win -- wowza.  We've dedicated our Oldie But Goodie Friday video in their honor and selected power Space Jam-anthem R. Kelly's "I Believe I Can Fly."  Watch R standing amid amber waves of grain and just try to tell us it doesn't make you want to chant "U-S-A!  U-S-A!" (Also acceptable, "It's the freakin' weekend, baby I'm about to have my some fun.")
