Wow, Mr. Michael Phelps. Wow. I recorded the 400m Medley Relay. Believe me, I was jumping up and down on the couch screaming as if it weren’t live, and as if I hadn’t already heard the results. What a moment! You are an inspiration, sir. Teammates Aaron Peirsol, Brendan Hansen and Jason Lezak (and Garrett Weber-Gale, Cullen Jones, and Jason Lezak for the previous relay), thank you for your contributions to this historic event.

Here are some videos from YouTube.

Bob Costas said it best. The Olympics started at 8:00 on 08/08/08 and the biggest headliner at the games went 8 for 8. Truly, wow.
