… but there is no way in hell those female Chinese gymnasts are 16. Maybe one at the most. But not all of them; they must be 12-14 at the oldest. And yet they slip right on by.
… but Katie Hoff?? Who has been said to be the female Michael Phelps? Seriously? No way. She didn’t even qualify in the 800 meter freestyle. An event that the US has gotten a medal in FOR THE LAST 28 YEARS, not to mention an event in which we have won the last five GOLD medals. I would try and go easy on her, but come on people. She swam in at least five finals and didn’t get a single gold medal. Phelps has already gotten five gold medals, two of which were his hardest meets yet. Hoff? Two silvers, a bronze, and a couple of fourth places. Every time she finished a race she came up gasping for air. Being tired is one thing; even the adorable Michael Phelps looked winded a couple of times. Then again he beats his world record by at leat one or more second every race (except for the semifinals and heats…which is a smart move). But he does not GASP for air. The whole “female Michael Phelps” thing is utter silliness. Bottom line: she is out of the olympics, so no more races for her. Lets get back to the states, get better, and maybe I’ll give her a second chance in London, 2012. Maybe.
… but Johnathon Horton? Yes please. This hotttie really helped pull together the mens gymnastics team and not only was he unbelievable to watch, he was very easy on the eyes. Yes he is a total frat boy when he opens his mouth, but whatever. He is hot.
… but I have come to really love the summer Olympics. Yes I always watch them, but my thing is really the winter Olympics. I am all about the figure skating and ice dancing and totaly girlyness of the outfits and stuff. But the summer olympics are growing on me. I watch because of Michael Phelps, though a few others have caught my interest. Will I continue watching when track and field starts? Ehh, most likely. But def. not as much. I won’t really care if I miss a night. Because all of those swimmers and gymnests beautiful faces and bodies won’t be on my screen. And really, without that? There isn’t really a point.
