I love watching Olympic swimming. I remember watching Michael Phelps win eight gold medals like it was yesterday. Now I'm rooting for him to break the record for the most medals by a single Olympic athlete. Go, Phelps!
I am especially glad that 17-year-old Missy Franklin from Colorado won the gold yesterday in the women's 100m backstroke. She was born the year songs like "Run Around" by Blues Traveler and "Kiss from a Rose" by Seal were billboard hits. That's also the year Pocahontas was released in theaters. No, that doesn't make me feel old. You go, girl!
