Does everyone have “Olympic Fever?”  It’s been an amazing series of games so far, led by Michael Phelps and his seven gold medals (as of last night), hunting for the all-time record later today.  The basketball teams finally look unbeatable again this year, the women’s gymnasts have done an excellent job, and let’s of course not forget about the dynamic due of May-Treanor & Walsh as the most dominant 2-person volleyball team EVER.   There are plenty of others to list but suffice to say we are truly loaded with outstanding athletes. As usual our great country is stocking up on the medals but China has made a pretty good run.  China?  Yeah, believe it as far as you can throw it . . . for God’s sake, they even cheated on the opening ceremonies!  Whatever, it’s been fun so far and there’s still a week to go.  I’ve always been proud to be an American, but it’s times like these that make it even more special.  GO USA!!!

A funny take on Favre August 16, 2008

Thought I’d share a pic on the constantly retiring-but-coming-back QB, the great Brett Favre.  I’ve pretty much hated the Packers since I started following pro football, but have a deep appreciation and respect for this future hall-of-famer.  However, the crazy shit that happened over the past couple months probably tarnished his personal image, and I actually felt a bit bad for the Packers organization getting into a no-win situation.  Actually I felt bad for about five minutes.  Anyway, enjoy the following submitted by a friend:
