Take that, you cheese-eating surrender monkeys! No offense to the people of France. I love France and French things. Frites, ganache — ganache in particular, I really love ganache. It’s just that maybe before you swim a race against one of the best swimmers in the history of the sport — you might want to keep your mouth shut and not give them anything to be pissed about. By far one of the greatest Olympic moments I’ve ever seen. The USA men’s 400-free relay team (whom the French team vowed to “smash”) broke the world record by four seconds and took the gold. Photo-finish, the Americans won by a nose-hair. Whoopsie!
In all fairness to France, I was rooting big time for the French woman swimmer to win the gold. She didn’t, but at least the Italian hussy that stole her boyfriend didn’t win either. (No offense, Italians. Have I mentioned how much I love ravioli?)
Melanie Roach (women’s weightlifing) was awesome! She was six for six in her lifts and set a new American record. Even though she finished out of the medals you could see the joy radiating off of her while she competed. That is what the Olympics should be about.
