bongI always thought that Michael Phelps was this year’s edition of Mark Spitz. Not that I had anything against the guy. Great swimmer and all that (though I do have a problem with the stacked deck for swimmers –  no other venue than the pool can offer such opportunities to run up the medal count). Anyway. They kept pushing him as The Next Big Thing and I never could see it. It never seemed to me he was a natural in front of the camera, try as they might to push him in our face.

Well, BONG!

I’d guess that the latest may put an end to all that. Whatever happened to Mark anyway?
