Floundering in a Giant's Wake - SAD!!

Who else feels sorry for all the other male swimmers in the Olympics who would have gold medal potential if not for the herculean Michael Phelps blowing them all out of the water? If I were them, I'd totally pee in his pool water.

I haven't figured out why any of them even bother getting wet...

Cammy, I thought for sure your were going to tell us that he's part of the family Bovidae.
whew.

Penny said...

I'm still enjoying the barettes from your last post. Its over now and the good ole USA has won so go to bed, my dear. All is well.

BAAAA! I think MP is more like an ox, (I get tingles when I think of his strength, AND the fact he eats up to 12000 cals a day) only C, are they graceful, and more importantly, are they part of the familia de bovidae?

Cammy said...

Yes ma'am, they are bovids, and they can actually swim. I'm not sure exactly how well, when I played Oregon Trail on the computer as a kid the damn things were always drowning in the rivers.

I feel bad for the male swimmers who are getting too old to compete in the Olympics and still have the potential to get a gold medal and haven't yet, but they'll never win one because of Michael Phelps. I'd totally pee in his pool water, too.

But I can't deny how amazing of a swimmer Michael Phelps is.

He eats up to 12,000 calories a day?! Is that even possible?!

It's so funny because I said those EXACT words to my husband this evening. Well, minus the peeage part.

Dang, if only I had your eloquence.

"If I were them, I'd totally pee in his pool water."

BWAHAHahahahaha!!! I almost spit coffee over my computer screen! ('Cause, you know. I have a mature sense of humor like that.)

I love the Olympic posts, Brie! Too funny. :D

I think if I were a male Olympic swimmer, I'd pee in his pool water too! However, I think Phelps rocks and am glad the USA won the gold in so many swimming events thanks to him.

brie said...

Oh yes, I am very in love with Mikey Phelps, especially his wasbhoard abs (he can wash MY board...?) and I love that he's kickin' ass for the USA, but if I were from a different country right now, I'd definitely be pouting.

Laura said...

he's got an awesome last name.
I can remember peeing in the kiddie pool....so disgusting. There were always warm patches in that pool.

brie said...

Who else is amazed that Mikey Phelps actually won the gold tonight? I was totally fanning my face with lust slash happiness!

PS Laura I'd like you more if you were related to him. HA!

haha. that's funny. pee in the pool! i admit, i'm totally psyched for michael. he's awesome.

Courtney said...

Since he supposedly has the perfect dimensions of a swimmer (long arms, wide hands and feet, short legs, a long torso, 0% body fat, etc) I think they should make him swim butt naked to equal out the playing field. No more aerodynamic spandex leggings for him!
