    LOL Calvin, priceless!

    Yep, saw it a few times. SWAAAEEET!!!

    I don't think I've ever heard Rowdy Gaines scream like he did last night whilst doing the commentary -- was awesome. Jason finally has gotten that "choke" monkey off his back and the French got to eat crow. :)

    The first 5 teams beat the old world record - what a race! And a world record by the aussie leading off and the fastest split time ever by Lezak - what a stud.

    It may be a while before that time is erased.

    That was unbelievable! After what the Frenchies said I was REALLY pulling for them in that race! I woke my dad up! Apparently the French have to learn the lesson of not counting your eggs before they hatch...they got what they had coming to them!

    ffwildcat, it seems that way about many World Records, but miraculously they are broken in the olympics with regularity!

    In particular I enjoyed the awards ceremony as the frogs had to stand there as our swimming team proudly held a right hand on thier hearts and the Star Spangeled Banner was played and the American Flag was raised above the French flag. How sweet it was.

    I just saw the 4x200m mens relay, the americans smoked the event and the world record.

    4X200 under 7 minutes for the first time in history! This realy team broke the world record by 5 seconds which is unbeleivable! Anyone watching these races are watching sports history at its best.
