OMG! The guy is amazing!
8 for 8 in 08!
I wanna be his mom. . .
Not only eight gold medals this year, but 14 total. The old Olympic record - in ALL sports - was nine!
You know, there were guys calling into sports radio this week suggesting that Phelps is not a Michigan man. They had a pretty good point, other than the whole being tattooed for Michigan thing.
He is a Michigan Man enough to have a couple of drunk Spartan fans cheering against him at Buffalo Wild Wings as he was swimming for the US this week.
Trained here and was an assistant coach here.
Don't know if it was a degree program or not, or if he passed them or what. Hard to get the inside scoop when it's a violation of federal law to go snooping (not that it stopped the Snooze reporters).
He's as much a part of U. of Michigan as Obama is a part of U. of Chicago.
