Men's Relay (Swimming)

I am just so excited. There was some fun at the Water Cube just moments ago.

In the Men's 4x100 meter Freestyle Relay the United States beat out the French team by eight one hundredths of a second. They posted a new Worlds Record, too. It was a Gold Medal run.

The excitement comes from the French saying that they were going to Smash the Americans. The French were in the lead until the very last eight one hundredths of a second of the race. When first place went up as USA the French team was more than stunned. The looks on their faces was priceless.

One of the announcers just kept saying things like - There is no way the US team can catch them, or it's too bad the US won't win gold because they're swimming well. I kept telling him (ya think he heard me??) to Think Positive! Sheesh, the US could win - watch!!

I was standing up hollering - GO!! Faster!! GO!! You can do it, go go gogogogogogogogo!

Whooooo Hoooo!!!
Have I mentioned how much I enjoy the Olympics?

Awww, I canceled my cable at the wrong time. I'm selling my condo and wanted to get the honking big tv out of the living room (staging, you know), but now I'm wishing I could watch some of the Olympics, heh. I'll have to see what I can find online. :)
