The Summer Olympics have officially wrapped un in Rio, but you wouldn't know it from reading the news—everyone is still preoccupied with 2016's favorite new event, the Ryan Lochte Shameathlon. After the American swimmer initially claimed he and his bros had been robbed at gunpoint, it turned out that story was just a cover-up for the awful truth—they had gotten wasted and peed all over a gas station bathroom.

Now that the story is out, Lochte is going on a nationwide apology tour, groveling at the feet of America's most judgmental media figures in an effort to look like less of a douchebag than he is. This morning, he finally appeared on the Today show to prostrate himself in front of America's vice principal, Matt Lauer.
