    11. Our media has a poor sense of history.
    I was a also-ran AAU swimmer in my early teens. The workouts are brutal. The condition of these swimmers is as good as it gets, but it’s not the only Olympic moment with great historical meaning. There are so many moments in the Olympics other than people winning medals. Some examples:

    Nadia scoring the first perfect 10’s I ever saw in gymnastics.

    The great Russian weightlifter Alexiev that used gardening as is getaway from training.

    Frank Shorter really making the Marathon take hold in the U.S.

    The U.S, beating the USSR in hockey, a feat that was considered impossible.

    Mark Spitz, who said recently he felt snubbed because he was not invited by NBC to Beijing be a commentator. When he won his seven medals, those races were not as close as the ones Phelps was involved in. The training and condition of swimmers is much more evenly matched these days, despite the dominance of the U.S. in the sport.

    I am very proud of the way Phelps handles himself. I wish some of our current leaders had that kind of class.

    I am fortunate that I get to watch some of this on CBC, as I live in Detroit area. They root for Canadians, but thei coverage is very thorough and informative. Our media could take a lesson…big time.

    I spent the better part of a week next to the arrogant little prick at the National Pool and Spa Show in Atlantic City.

    He was endorsing a tether that would allow one to swim in place, a create-your-own-lap-pool type of device.

    The guy was actually wearing his damned medals. I acted as if I had never heard of him and, at one point, asked him if he had acquired his medals at a pawn shop.

    The guy has the personality of a scorpion (and that's putting it nicely, no disrespect to scorpions).
    I guess ol' lying Tom couldn't come up with a story about competing in the Olympics, so we get this lame tale. You should have tried harder, Tom. Your unrestrained jealousy of a man who actually accomplished something in life really jumps out of this lie.

    18. Spitz reminds me of ex NBA great Rick Barry. They both have the resume but for some reason their
    personalities are the deal breaker.

    19. Funny that you should mention Barry...
    I used to work with the Houston, Texas, chapter of Special Olympics.

    Barry used to volunteer a good bit of his time to the effort, probably in an attempt to rehabilitate his image.

    Whenever he entered a room, it felt like someone had just walked out.

    26. Don't you just love me?
    You must, because you follow me around quite a lot.

    I planted that just to draw out trolls such as you, HotRod.

    Worked like a charm, didn't it?

    Could I send you a pic of mine so that you have something to get excited about when your sister/mother/dog gets old?

    Suck it, Softee.

    You are not man enough to carry my guitar case.

    Tom

    PS. You are more than welcome to send this to the Mods. You can then add it to all of the long list of disappointments that you have encountered in your miserable little life. That ol' playground was pretty rough, wasn't it?
    T.

    PPS. Why don't you pay (to DU) if you want to play, Soft One? Pony up, Pig.

    PPPS. But please don't go away, I love the attention.

    Your friend,
    TomInTib

    So, that brainless, heartless rodent admits that he made a lot of really nasty and rude comments to Spitz, thenclaims that Spitz has 'The personality of a scorpion'?
    If that's not the pot calling the kettle black, I don't know what is.

    Is there anyone TiT doesn't personally know???

    I don't think he can help himself, he really does want the attention.

    May the FORCE be with you!

    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.
