Tennis, team spirit, and 'The Tonight Show': TODAY's week in 7 tweets

The 2014 Winter Olympics may be winding down, but the competition was just heating up in the TODAY studio this week. The anchors earned gold medals of their own for the "Newsies vs. Sporties" face-off and even took on some former Olympians for a fierce game of tennis.  

First, the first-ever Anchor Olympics kicked off.
