    • All right, fess up. Who else has succumbed and is all cheesily excited about Michael Phelps's 8 gold medals? He's so cute and goofy and gangly and I totally him. He loves his mama!

      Also, Dara Torres was kickass. It would be nice, though, if the announcers, just once, could talk about her without mentioning her age. You'd think she used a walker to get to the pool.

      • *raises hand*

        I love everything about him...the 12,000 calorie/day diet, how much he loves his mama, the fact that even with $5 million/year in endorsements he hasn't fixed his teeth, all of it. I was so happy for him!

        And Dara rocks! As a kid, she apparently used to be a member of my town's swim team, so you can't go anywhere without hearing about her.

        • I'm kind of obsessed with him now. I've spent the last two weeks googling and you-tubing everything I can find on him. The same thing happend during the last Olympics too, but to a lesser extent. I'm such a bandwaggoner/fairweather fan that I'm sure I'll lurve him intensely for the next couple of weeks and then forget all about him until London when I will resume my Phelps Phanning.

          On a related note, his long-haired sister looks eerily like my sister so I get all choked up everytime I see her fuh-reak out with joy and start sobbing each time he wins. It really looks like my sister is there crying for Michael Phelps.

          • I've never been one to care about the Olympics. I don't even know why. I get why people dig it but I just can't be bothered somehow.

            That said, Issie's ability to project her own sister onto Phelps's sister? I LOVES it.
            Itís just really honestly so tiring and emotionally draining to have to get upset over reality constantly.

              You must be SO excited! Rafa's finally done it. What a game. 4 championship points before he finally did it.

              • Everybody SEXIN' it up!!!

                This UK article talks about how kerrrrazy the sexin' an hook-ups get at the Olympic Village. I would have preferred more names and pictures, though. Perhaps a diagram.

                link

                I'd already heard elsewhere that Phelps and Stephanie Rice (gold medalalist for Australia) have hooked up, to the disgust of her very recent ex Eamon Sullivan (also a gold medalist from Australia).

                Lainey's blog has the story and some pics, but I can't get the link to work. This is her home page, though.

                Why isn't this a reality show????

                • OMG! There is a Josh/Katie RLTL gossip snippet like halfway down the page!

                  *ahem* You may return to your sports programming.

                  • In Athens, the Olympic committee provided like 10,000 condoms for the athletes and they ran out halfway through the Games. I think it's funny that the swimmers are the shameless whores of the Olympics. And good on Phelps if he really hooked up with Stephanie Rice. I thought she was the prettiest swimmer out of all the ones we were able to see and while he's very talented, he's not exactly gonna get the gold medal in the sport of attractiveness any time soon.

                    • Bwah!

                      I can't believe I didn't notice the RLTL snippet. Lainey has always had the hots for Pacey/Josh. And she gets to actually meet and interview him occasionally, so she's a lucky bitca. I have the feeling that she would have liked that RP fic with Josh rescuing KH and Suri from TC with the help of Kristen Bell and Jason Dohring. DohrBell!!! I wish I could find that damn fic again.

                      Anyway, yes - Olympians are whores.

                        • I love that the author of that article tries to make it sound surprising that winning a ton of medals makes the male athletes more desirable than the women. Because it's not as if, in the rest of the world, men are generally judged by their accomplishments and women by their appearance, or anything. In conclusion: Welcome to the planet, genius.

                          The rest of the article did crack me up, though. The Olympic Village sounds like some bizarre Summer Camp-meets-The First Week of College experience. It'll probably be an "American Pie Presents:" feature in no time.

                          • That really would make a great "American Pie" movie. Especially if they can convince Phelps to make it his feature film debut.

                            [oh, shiny, shiny link! I will never lose you again. Thanks, is.]

                            Speaking of movies, I wonder how many gay porn titles the American male swim team will inspire. *so hawt*

                            • So no one's cared enough about sporty things in three years, apparently and the last thing we talked about here was Toledo and The J. Hee! Maybe RLTL needs it's own thread somewhere since it infiltrates like a mofo.

                              Anyway, college football is the one sport I really get into. I like professional sports, too, but nothing compares to the MAJOR dramz of college football. Well, March Madness comes close, but ANYWAY...so UT has their own station now called the Longhorn Network. It's done through ESPN, but DUMBASSES didn't secure pickups from the major cable providers before the season started. So even people who LIVE in Austin couldn't watch the game tonight. Houston's providers didn't pick it up, either and so Mr. Issie and I were crouched around a laptop watching this mega shitty livestream that kept cutting out on us. We felt like we were participating in some weird child exploitation showcase 'cause it was all grainy and shit. And of course it would cut out right during a crucial play or right before a score. So retarded. We were playing Rice so it wasn't that big of a deal, but it was still frustrating.

                              All last season, Mr. Issie topped himself on creative swearing combinations directed toward UT's shitty quarterback who was just terrible. But tonight, I think he might have topped himself on creative profane combos directed towards the Longhorn Network. It's pretty funny to me that in our "outside" lives we hardly ever swear, like EVER. But in our own home, OMG we are TERRIBLE. All we do is swear. Like we know we have to get it all out before we can enter polite society.
