'Her Hotness Was Rated As Volcanic'

Gymnast Alicia Sacramone may have cost Team USA the gold when she fell off the balance beam—but she appears to have landed in the arms of an adoring internet. The phrase "Alicia Sacramone is hot" found its way to the top of Google's trends list, rendering it "Volcanic" in the web giant's parlance. This led a pair of NBC announcers to wonder what led to her popularity, noting that there's "something about [her] entire happenstance."

Something about her happenstance, eh? Deadspin has another theory. [Insert bad penis joke involving the words "something" and "happenstance" here].
