US Olympic men’s relay swim team kicks French bootie

Posted by: ST on August 11, 2008 at 9:06 am

The French men’s relay swim team had been talking smack this weekend about how they were going to “smash” the American team.  The US team was not favored to win the 4×100-meter freestyle relay final  … but they did, edging out the French last night by a fingertip and setting a new world record in classic fashion.

    The French coaches should send their loudmouthed swimmer to the Russian front. Any rookie knows you don’t give your opponents any greater incentive to beat you than they already have.

    I just finished my 3rd trip to Vietnam. The French tourists there are just as childishly rude as the olympic swimmers. Thanks for the loss Frogs.:d

    The AP has just announced that the arrogant and callous actions of the Americans, with complete disregard for the peace loving french swim team, will cause us to lose face worldwide. Obama has stated that this is exactly the sort of thing he talks about when he says he wants to get the U.S. back to “the way it was”.

    How dare we win this!!!! What was President Bush thinking?!?!?!?

  6. That was the best race ever! When Lezak hit the wall for the final leg I knew he was going ot catch him I started screaming go get him! I hope that wasn’t politically incorrect of me.
