If Team USA's Kim Rhode wins a medal in skeet shooting Friday, she will claim a piece of Olympic history: the 37-year-old Californian will be the first woman to take the podium in six straight Olympics.

Landing a big-name sponsor might be the bigger feat.

Rhode took Bronze. Her amazing accomplishment has been largely ignored by the media.

Because people can't tell the difference between shooting at a paper target as opposed to morons on the street shooting at people.

It's utterly ridiculous.
