Boo left last night for a couple days at her grandpa’s. She was giddy with excitement. I was giddy for a night of quiet, and hopefully getting some much needed sleep.
The sleep didn’t come, though I swear I did try…with the TV on, yelling at it…loudly.
Who didn’t see the 4×100 last night…here’s a video if you haven’t. Who wasn’t yelling at the tv?
We had our windows open last night, and I could hear people down the block yelling too, so I know I wasn’t alone.
The race was amazing. Lezak touched a fingertip before the French swimmer. All the smack talk didn’t hold up did it…
Phelps swam an amazing opening leg, and went a little crazy at the end. It is so wonderful to see such excitement for a sport. I love it!
Garrett Weber-Gale pulled a great second leg, keeping the distance close.
Cullen Jones, the man who almost died in a swimming accident when he was 5, pulled the third leg of this amazing relay. He hadn’t even made it back to his teammates by the time Lezak hit the wall. He jumped over all kinds of things to celebrate with them.
Should we even talk about the fact that the top five teams all broke the world record during this race. USA took 4 seconds of the record, it was smashed.
Michael Phelps is now 2 for 2, with another race today. Pretty amazing, and I can’t wait to watch!
