I have been watching Michael Phelps who just received his 9th gold medal.



"BEIJING (AP)--Michael Phelps won his third gold medal and record-tying ninth of his career Tuesday, breaking his own world record in the 200-meter freestyle at the Beijing Olympics.

The American finished in 1 minute, 42.96 seconds, lowering his old mark of 1:43.86 set at last year's world championships in Australia.

He cruised to the wall nearly 2 seconds ahead of silver medalist Park Tae-hwan of South Korea, who finished in 1:44.85. Peter Vanderkaay of the United States earned the bronze in 1:45.14.

Phelps' ninth gold medal tied him with four others, including Mark Spitz and track star Carl Lewis, for most career golds.

He is 3-for-3 in his attempt to break Spitz's 36-year-old record of seven golds in a single games.

Not me, for some reason I don't find them too entertaining. I think the last time I watched them I was like 10 years old.

I've always loved watching the winter sports myself. Ski jumping, luge, ice hockey, ect....


Still though when an American sets mega records it's fun to watch, (as an American) anyway.

Did anyone see the opening ceremony?

Watching the what?


Seriously though, I watch some events but can't say I watch it like I do for baseball or football. I'm glad to see Phelps succeeding so far. I watch it for the patriotism if nothing else

I actually love the fact that they showcase some of the less popular sports. Things like volleyball and badminton just as examples, are sports in which the athletes don't get nearly enough credit for what they do. The track & field stuff is interesting as well.



But while I want to respect and admire all these olympic athletes, I must admit the power walking thing strikes me as downright silly. Sorry.

What's next? Rock-Paper-Scissors?
