The best of Samuel L. Jackson's exuberant Olympics commentary

Though he's known for standout roles in blockbuster films like "Pulp Fiction," "Jurassic Park" and "The Avengers," American actor Samuel L. Jackson is also making an unlikely name for himself as one of this summer's most rambunctious Olympic commentators.

The unapologetically patriotic star of "Snakes on a Plane" has live tweeted a bevy of events during this summer's Olympic Games, offering his own unique brand of sports commentary on everything from water polo to synchronized diving.
