I can picture one Dr. Spitz saying, "Yeah, that's fine and dandy. But can he give you a root canal?"

Last night they had not yet broadcast the games on the west coast & I read here Phelpsie had won & again tonight!

You are ahead of the times, kiddo!

That's ok... I'm really glad for him... he now is the most golden ahtlete, right?

His Mom said some interesting things in an interview... he got into swimming because kids used to tease him about his ear size and it was a way to break away from that.
(Take that all you mean ear size teasers..... bet you wished you had been nice to him Now!)

Or wil MSM turn that into some weird story...
yes the cruel kids who relentlessly taunted him, actually caused him to be an inspired swimmer....????

When asked if she thought he could win more gold, she said he can do anything he puts his mind to.

Wow! Makes his success story even more cool- he was made fun of & overcame it & came out waaaay ahead.

The best of the best is always inspirational to most of us! It took so much work and dedication to get where he is, where all of them are.
