I remember the summer you stayed glued to the TV watching/admiring Mark Spitz. It's been a l-o-o-n=g time...now you have a new hero!

Woo hoo! They say he has hands the size of dinner plates. Oh, where the mind wanders when I see him in those little swim trunks. (yeah, great olympian and all, but swimmers are built!)

Congrats,Michael. I so enjoyed watching him win his 8.

Coincidence with 8 being a lucky number in China? I think not.

And I cant beleive it has been 30+ years since we all watched Mark Spitz. I was a young woman. LOL.

I am so proud to be an American. Might be a good title for a song. LOL.

ROFL, Pat!

I watched the majority of Michael's wins and that boy is just freaking awesome. He's such a sweetie too. He deserves all the success he's had. :P

I was cheering him on with almost every race! He has a great body, but I was really worried that he was going to lose his swim trunks. They seemed to get lower with every swim.
