It's official...I am an Olympic NERD. I would watch the games 24/7 if I could. As it is, my kids are now obsessed and can tell you how to accurately score a beach volleyball game, and what it takes to get a high score in springboard diving. And Gabe now wants to grow up and be Michael Phelps.

Did anyone see the Mens Team swim relay last night? The French team was talking some SERIOUS SMACK about us beforehand, saying that they would "SMASH" our team. Well, guess what...?

Yeah...we won.

And it was by 8/10ths of a second. But still, WE GOT GOLD! As a wise man once said, "If you ain't first, you're last!" In your FACE le francais! Lance was screaming so loudly he woke up the kiddies. Yep...we're havin' some fun at our house for a couple weeks.

I'm so with you on this one... I'm glued to the tube. The relay was the all time best! So intense...I love it! It sure feels good to beat those sissy french and smash the world record to smithereens. Did you catch the look on the French teams face afterwards? I re watched it online just to see it again.

If you ain't first your last....
That Ricky Bobby is one cool guy!
Makes me think of another guy!

I did not see the race. I guess I'd better look it on the internet!

I missed it - but saw the re-runs on the today show this morning! I love the Olympics too. Last summer olympics, Hayden was a newborn & wouldn't sleep at night, so we did watch 24/7! :)
