30 8.15.8

A Happy Birthday! What a finish at the Olympics for Michael Phelps record 7th Gold medal swim. One more to break it. I still can't believe the times and how many break records, but those close, heart stopping touches to win. UNBELIEVABLE!

Crazy 9.92 second run, in the quarterfinals, that makes it look like a walk in the park. I remember when breaking 10 seconds for the 100m was thought to be really really fast. That was max effort but that is more like a training session now.

Boxing, Kayaking, Tennis, Basketball, Softball, Soccer, Track and Field, Swimming, Diving, Archery, Beach Volleyball, Indoor Volleyball, Gymnastics, Greco-Roman Wrestling, Rowing, Cycling, and that crazy weight lifting mistake that goes to show you the elbow bending inwards with 400lbs over your head is NEVER a good thing, are just some of the sports I've seen so far.

Favre to J-E-T-S 8.7.8

Trading Brett was the only way out of the "stalemate". Sure he wants to play, but not with the understanding that you will be the backup. Not sure what happens if/when Rodgers is injured. I wish he would have taken his time 6 months ago so we wouldn't have this day, especially coming off of the NFC title game in Green Bay.
