Ryan Lochte’s brain. It’s a beautiful thing. One of the most beautiful, entertaining things all year...

It’s all of it in combination, of course:

The grill...

The “Jeah”...

The “Bro” + “Jeah” equation...

The clothing...

The half limp...

The way he takes his shirt off, Matthew McConaughey styles, with no invitation...

But mostly that all of this that constitutes Ryan Lochte, dum-dum, inspired some of the best comic writing of the year. Erin Gloria Ryan’s 10 Reasons Why Ryan Lochte Is America’s Sexiest Douchebag was one of my favourite pieces ever to be posted on Jezebel.

And then, then there’s the Ryan Lochte interview. Never before has it been documented so precisely, the simple of act of saying words, and making them travel from his head to his mouth. He made the year better, he really, really did.
