wow

Did anyone else see the incredible Men's 400M Freestyle Relay finals last night?! The US pulled past the French in the last five seconds to take the Gold, and oh my gosh, was it an exciting race. The French were slated to win this event and had been trash talking saying they were going to "smash" the US team. Boy, did they eat their words. Not only did Phelps, Weber-Gale, Jones, and Lezak win Gold, but they shattered the world record by like a full four seconds! Lezak anchored the race with the fastest split in history. This race was ridiculous.


This means Michael Phelps is still in the running to make 8-gold-medals-in-one-Olympics history.


mmmhhh...yeaaa...can we tell that I spent practically the whole weekend watching the Olympics? I'm hooked. And the Opening Ceremonies were incredible.

Michael Phelps could have been the lead in that movie 300 - only he wouldn't have had to be digitally enhanced or wear a muscle suit. I love Michael Phelps I hope he wins all 8 golds.
