BOB COSTAS, I WILL RIP THE THROAT FROM YOUR MIDGET BODY.

This is the first time I have been drinking during the primetime Olympics this year. It does not improve NBC's coverage at all.

"He was disatisfied with his silver medal...." Um Bob? Some of us saw this earlier, and yeah, no.

Morgan Freeman commercial is now ironic.

Just tied it with that silver.

What a failure, only second fastest in the world

Earguy: Ah, Phelps went for a glide into the wall, the other guy took one more stroke.


4 years ago, Phelps took one extra stroke and beat a glider. He should've known better.

Prince Harry always looks like he's either cruising chicks, or wishing he were cruising chicks.

Even at his brother's wedding, everyone was thinking he was gonna tap the bride's sister.

So this. I used to like him in the late eighties early nineties. Now I hate him.

He really didn't have the room for it, he'd have had his hands slamming into the touch pad for the timing and that would not be good for his hands and wrists.

Who's the driver in those commercials for the ATS? He looks familiar, but I can't place it.

That looks like a yes.

Props to le Clos on that one. The BBC interview with his dad afterwards was pretty funny. Quite possibly the jolliest man alive.

I'm guessing NBC won't show it, so for those who didn't watch earlier, Phelps was extremely gracious and even appeared to be showing the winner how to handle getting around to the press interviews and stuff.

BTW watching the swimming and the Phelps' story I wish Rowdy Gaines would pipe up a bit. Gaines first swim team, was his high school swim team his junior year of high school. Two years later he was a college swimmer with a scholarship. At 25 he was Olympic 100 m freestyle champion. Would be nice for him to mention his own background, and say it works too, just to maybe dissuade some parents from getting pushy with their 11 or 10 or even 9 year old.

I know I'm in the minority, but I like him. He's smarter and more thoughtful and more well spoken than most sports journalists (*coff* Joe Buck) and often more knowledgeable than even athlete-commentators (*coff* Aikman, Deion, and well, all of them).

Earguy: Shrugging Atlas: Sports threads with Earguy commentary are one of the better things on Fark. There, I said it.

/even better when he posts pictures of semi-naked womenz

Awww, thanks! NSFW Link


Well, that's curiously .... hypnotic.

Could he have done an extra little stroke with one of his arms underwater like a doggy paddle for a little extra push, and reached with just one arm? Or is that not allowed?

What's their problem? That's a good story to show. farking idiots.

I would rather be ignored than be given that canned praise what the hell.

Yep. Even though Phelps would love the threepete, he also has said these Olympics are basically just to be there and compete, come what may. And he is definitely living up to that. He gets what he is and that really he has nothing to prove to anyone, so he can just take what he gets and be happy. Because I suspect he is happy.

I normally usually enjoy him, but it's the little "Oh did that poor result upset you? Well don't worry, because later on in *insert popular event* there will be a much better outcome for our heroes!" that is slowly driving me insane.

I suspect that next week will be one gigantic party for him.

his stroke would have to be the butterfly stroke, anything else would result in a DQ, so he was between a rock and a hard place and pretty much did all he could. Now, had he been two feet further from the wall, he'd have the room for one more stroke.

It seems the men don't have to do that. Slightly unfair, I feel.

I loved it last night when Andrea Kramer basically asked him if he was going to perform well or choke tonight and he just laughed it off.

And he knows that there will be no more deconstructing the performance and then weeks of woodshedding to shave off another .04 seconds. And he's after medals, not golds. Secure spot in history, then relax for life.

I'm pretty sure NBC is making him say that. I know four years ago by the second week of the games a few times he was openly snarky about what he was supposed to say.

cameroncrazy1984: I suspect that next week will be one gigantic party for him.


I suspect he may need to ask around if anyone has any condoms they could spare...

You have to touch the wall with two hands simultaneously in fly and breaststroke.

I just don't like how all the balance beam moves are mechanical.

"Oh, I'm supposed to stick my foot out and then wave my hand. Turn. Stick my arm out. Turn. Wave hand. Finish"

Fark Rye For Many Whores: Is that Night Ride Across The Caucasus?


sounds it

Earguy: Secure spot in history, then relax for life.


He's already secured his spot in history, he's just putting his name on the top of yet another list, because well he's so close he might as well. I seriously think if he was already on the top of the list he might have gone "Eh, four events is enough".

100,000 Olympic Village condoms lead me to believe that it's going to be a party for a whole lot of them...
