Watching the Olympics 2008, Beijing, China

Michael Phelps wins 1st Gold
Instead of renting a movie, we watched swimming (and some beach volleyball) coming from China Saturday night here, Sunday morning there. My wife being a swimmer has been looking forward to rooting for Michael Phelps, so without objection I sat politely to watch his impressive performance … as did President Bush, although he in person. Phelps, who was favored, won his first gold this 29th Olympiad in the ‘Men’s 400m Individual Medley’ breaking the world record. Lazslo Cseh of Hungary won the silver and Ryan Lochte of the U.S. the bronze. Impressive.
