In the Minority

I admit that I am NOT one of the millions of Americans who is enamored with Michael Phelps.

I can appreciate his athletic prowess. The guy's got major talent. But he seems like an arrogant creep.

Did you see him screaming at his teammates in the 800X relay? They more than doubled the lead you created in the opening leg, buddy. Sit down. You are great but you are not alone.

It's starting to really bug me, too.

I'm with ya. You are not alone.

I don't even really know that I've taken a good look at this guy. The Olympics bore me.

Kevin said...

We (Jody and I) are tired of the coverage of him as well. The most annoying display by NBC, was with the 4x100 relay (the last one). During the ENTIRE medal ceremony the camera was on him the whole time... Hello team relay here, at least they could do was do a close up of each guy.

I don't like him either. He has bad teeth and gross feet.

I think I made a comment about him marrying Favre and the media never shutting up.

Megan - phew, it's over!

Annie - way to reuse my terms back at me, awesome.e

Beckeye - I'm addicted to the gymnastics. That Jamaican Bolt is pretty awesomem too.

Kevin - I missed that. I'd be bummed if I were one of the other swimmers.

Pugs - leave it to you to notice those details! ;)

JACC - no doubt, will be happy when the media picks their next topic of obsession.
