The Olympics

Great googly moogly!! Are you watching the Olympics??!! If not, why not? I've just been blown away by what I've seen in the past couple days out of our American athletes. Michael Phelps is just a freak of nature. How anyone can swim like that is beyond the realm of my understanding, but I'm sure glad he's on our team. The men's relay was a really exciting, classic finish that was amazing to watch. And it didn't hurt that they beat the French team that was talking trash to the media about how they were going to "smash" the Americans.

Talk to the gold medal, baby.

And then Michael Phelps manages to absolutely SHATTER his own world record by about a mile and half in an individual swim.

It will be really neat to see if he can pull off winning 8 gold medals. How cool is that??
