That was an OMG moment!

okay i'm super into swimming because i swam a ton when i was little. i've seen a lot of races in my day, but NOTHING compares to the men's 4x100 free relay last night! idk how many ppl watched it, but i am so glad i didn't miss that history in the making. if you haven't seen it yet, go on youtube or wherever you can find it, and WATCH it! it was amazing. the french team was talking trash, and i thought for sure that we were gonna take 2nd but jason lezak who is freakin amazing caught up and passed alain bernard on the french. ugh best race i've ever seen by far!!!


here's the fab 4. michael phelps (of course), cullen jones, garret weber-gale, and jason lezak

look at the bottom of my blog and you can see a video. it's really crappy bc someone just taped their tv. if you cant find anything else though watch it, and pay attention to lane 4

Katie - I TOTALLY thought of you when I watched that relay because I know you love MP. That was the BEST Olympic moment so far!! Stupid French guys - they shouldn't have been talking trash - it just fueled the USA team to kick their ---.

Kaitlin, did you hear Rob scream from there? He was yelling so loud when that race happened. It was really cool. He gets so nervous when MP races. It's like he is racing. Funny! GO USA!

That's funny, Jodi. Zac was in his room and I was in my living room when I was watching it - I said, OMG!! and Zac ran out and said , "What, Mom? Are you OK?" I said, "OMG, you have to watch this" and I replayed it. He said, "You're weird," and went back to his room. Someone is missing the Olympic Spirit...

hahaha you should have seen me. i think me and michael were making the same faces and screaming just as loud. my mom walked out half asleep and i probably scared her really bad.

HAHA, Since I work at home now I have been addicted to the Olympics!! That moment is my absolute favorite so far... what made it so good was not only the excitement on the other swimmers faces,,, but the sportsmanship Phelps showed the (trash talking) FREnch team!!!!

I saw the "moment" replayed many times the next morning and definetely caught the spirit of it even then. I think I even cried one of the many times I watched it.

It's a great example of never giving up. Jason Lezak said he had a moment when he thought he couldn't do it, then he just went for it. so great.
