This Guy’s Alright

I hope this guy makes something of himself

So Michael Phelps won his 8th gold medal tonight.  And he did it in front of Kobe Bryant, who was in the stands.  Which means Kobe sat down and watched yet another domination and coronation.

There, I tied a swimming post to the Celtics championship.  That’s got to be worth a medal, right?

Seriously… Phelps is one of the most ridiculous athletes in history.  If you didn’t take a minute to enjoy it… then you lose.  You were alive for the most dominating athletic performance ever… and you missed it.  This might never be matched.

  1. watching these guys win gold really, truly, makes me proud to be a citizen of the greatest country in the world.

  2. good stuff, the athlete and the post

  3. Olympic side note: i love how the IOC stripped that wrestler who left his disputed bronze metal on the mat during the ceremony, but has done nothing with the medals of the creepy 12 year old Chinese girls who are supposed to be 16

  4. I missed it. But my biggest fear is that Phelps gets caught juicing. I hope to god that he is completely legit. I hate to be skeptical, but I live in a era where an athlete who tears it up like Phelps has an outside chance of juicing.

  5. I don’t think you need to worry about Phelps in that regard, Bill. Based on what I’m reading, these guys are being routinely tested. Just sit back and enjoy.

  6. not only is he routinely tested… I believe he’s volunteered for an even more rigorous testing program that has him tested even more… so he can provide the baseline against which other samples are tested.

  7. You guys are funny.
