It’s been a crazy web-traffic week for BON.Â First aÂ foreign website links to me, then all sorts of people from CNN paid this website a visit because of an article I linked to.
I am ready for the swimming portion of the Olympics to be over.
I think Michael Phelps’ mother is getting more camera time than Kurt Warner’s mother wife got several years back.
You don’t hear anything about his father, so I decided to research that issue, but came up with nada.Â However, his Wikipedia page mentions that the swimmer is ADHD.
I’m going to hold off crowning Phelps the greatest Olympian of all time.Â I think Carl Lewis’ four golds in 1984 and earning a gold medal in four Olympiads is more impressive.Â Not to mention, Phelps has the ability to earn more golds in his sport than the atheletes in their respective sports.Â But I will say that Phelps is the greatest Olympian with an underageÂ drunk driving record.
Speaking of Carl Lewis, his first name is actually Frederick.Â heheheheh.
My suit actually took a picture with Carl Lewis.Â In high school a friend of mine borrowed my suit to got to an FCA function where he was speaking.
I know there have been a lot of advancements regarding swimming such as the new swim suit and rubber platforms on the starting block and “waveless” pools, but it would not surprise me that years from now we discover that doping was involved.Â It all kind of reminds me of the home run chase between Mark Maguire and Sammy Sosa.Â Everyone was so caught up in the excitement that nothing was questioned.Â This all entered my mine when I saw the U.S. men’s relay team beat all the other teams in the same pool using the same advanced swim suits in the 4x200m freestyle relay by about two body lengths.
A total of 29 swimming world records were broken before the games even began.Â Source
My Olympian friend at my formerÂ work placeÂ use to tell some some crazy things that happens in the Olympic Village.Â He basically told me to think about it, you have all these beautifully sculpted atheletes from around the world that have been nothing but focused upon this one moment in their life, then when that moment is over, it’s time to unleash all that tension.
I think the new Samsung Instinct phone isn’t as intuitive as it should be.
There’s a new Baptist hymnal.Â I’m not sure I can recall the last time I was in a church that actually used hymnals as opposed to a projector.
My Acura theory continues to prove itself true.
I wish I had a better understanding of what’s going on with Russia and Georgia, but overall, I think I get the gist of it.
I saw that Charles Gibson was broadcasting from Dallas again, and I just don’t understand why they don’t use Victory Park as a backdrop.Â But they show some of it before they went to break.
It wasn’t until I left college whenÂ I first heard of someone having a peanut allergy, now it seems like almost every other person has a peanut allergy.Â I blame vaccinations since I can’t think of anything else to blame it on.
I wonder why Honda stopped making the Prelude.
ESPN Page 2 use to be a really great place to visit for a break during the workday, but I may have only visited that site a dozen or so times since it was redesigned about a year and a half ago.
There was an interesting discussion on The Ticket about movie and music sales.Â Music sales are tracked by number of albums sold, so you can easily compare the number of albums Elvis has sold compared to Justin Timberlake.Â But movies are measured by the amount of total money taken in.Â Wouldn’t it be easier to track movies by number of tickets sold?Â That way you don’t have to take the price of tickets and inflation into account.
Hard Knocks is interesting but not very entertaining.
