olympic mania

I'm totally hooked on the 2008 Beijing Olympics! I can't remember being this into the games. 4 years ago, I really didn't even care that much. The opening ceremony...I mean...it was so amazing that I can't even really describe it. I'm having a hard time finding videos which sucks because I want to watch it again and I wanted to share it on my blog.

And last night...holy crap.
The 400 freestyle relay. Michael Phelps's second gold medal (of the eight he's trying to nab) is on the line. It's not looking so good for the US team, with the French swimmer Alain Bernard in the lead...but then...miraculously...Lezak, the oldest man on the U.S. swimming team, pulled off one of the great comebacks in Olympic history, hitting the wall just ahead of Bernard. Just BARELY made it.

It was so exciting I literally jumped up out of my seat. I couldn't believe it.

I'm officially hooked.
You should be too.
