Dara Torres just got a silver. Is anyone else bored of her? Anyone? She’s from South Florida. It seems there are a lot of Olympians from here, but I guess I missed the memo. SIGH.

I just finished watching some hottie from Tunisia grab the gold in the 1500m Freestyle. FIFTEEN-HUNDRED, PEOPLE. THAT IS A LOT OF LAPS. But the really important thing to note here is that Tunisia has hotties! I didn’t even know that! Jeez. These are the things they should be teaching in 5th grade Geography and they just gloss over it, what the hell?  I’m outraged.

Apparently his name is Oussama Mellouli. Does anyone else find it slightly funny that NBC didn't list him as Oussama, but instead shortened his name to Ous? Wow.

Next on the list of things my mother says that she just shouldn’t say: “The Bird’s Nest looks like a giant toilet seat.

AAAAAND that concludes tonight’s portion of things my mother says that she just shouldn’t say.

They just did a small rundown of the people who are competing tonight in the Men’s 4x100m Relay. It’s gonna be Peirsol, Hansen, Phelps, and Lezak. Their biggest challenge is gonna come from Australia, of course. But we all remember what happened in the 2004 4×100 Relay, SOOOOOO I’m confident that our boys will hold it down. Plus, I think Milky might eat anyone who screws this up for him — GLARIN’ AT YOU, BRENDAN HANSEN.

I SEE NATALIE COUGHLINNNNN. I should write a song for her. If I was a lesbo, I’d be all over that, man. I have to admit, I’ve been slacking on paying attention to the women’s portion of events the past couple days, and I wasn’t sure if Katie Hoff was gonna be swimming in the last women’s relay. NBC tells me that she’s not, so THANK GOODNESS FOR THAT.

Speaking of Faily Hoff, I found this hilarious thread about her today, on some site called Killer Frogs. The link is right here. Some notable quotes:

“I saw one blogger theorize that she should be the new face of Fail Blog.”

….that was ME. Anyone else who said it should CREDIT ME or pay me royalties or something.

“that blogger should probably get off his fat [Deleted] and go try to medal in the olympic games….”

Look, I already said I’m gonna try to go for Trampoline, ok? What more do you people want from me? I don’t even want a medal. I just wanna be Lochte’s love slave, ok? Is that so much to ask? JEEZ.

Anyway, WOMEN’S RELAY WOMEN’S RELAY. Rebecca Soni is swimming in this one and she is just so cute. She’s apparently 21, she looks about 15, but still adorable. DON’T GO LOOKIN FOR BEAVER SHOTS JUST COS I MENTIONED HER NAME, PERVERTS.

Rebecca Soni in the center. This isn't from tonight's race but I had to show off the cute.

Australia grabbed the gold, with the US getting a silver and China getting a bronze. Where the hell did Chinese swimmers even come from, anyway? I don’t remember them being this dominating in 2004. Good job, China!

MEN’S RELAY STARTS SOON. I HAVE TO PEE BUT I DON’T WANT TO MISS ANYTHING. I don’t know where Kim is but I hope she has her direct connect to Milky turned on now. I should turn on my direct connect to HANSEN AND YELL AT HIS ASS. Ugh. I will never forgive him.

AW Kobe and Lebron from the US Basketball team is in the stands to watch Phelps. CROSS-SPORT VOYEURISM. Love it.

THEY’RE ON THEIR WAY OUT. Let’s see who makes it to the blocks first. US GETS TO THE BLOCKS FIRST YES. I’m just kidding, that didn’t really happen.

Not gonna lie, I kinda have a crush on Jason Lezak. He’s pretty cute for an oldie. OH HEY, EAMON SULLIVAN. YOU SO CUTE. Just sayin’. TANCOCK IS SWIMMING IN THIS ONE WAAHAHAHA. Oh ew, so is Kitajima. That guy is a tool. Japan is in lane 3, USA in lane 4, Australia in lane 5. Oh jeez I’m getting nervous. After that race last night I don’t even know what to think. Milky is wearing the good luck half-suit, which is great.

OFF THEY GO. Peirsol is first for the USA. I love him. I have faith in him. He does a great job when he needs to. As of the 50m Peirsol is in first, breaking the world record. HANSEN IS IN. COME ON, BRENDY. DO IT FOR ME EVEN THOUGH WE’RE NOT ON SPEAKING TERMS RIGHT NOW. He’s doing a good job. Still in the lead as of the 150m. UH OH JAPAN IS SNEAKING UP ON THE US. SO IS AUSTRALIA. UGH.

MILKY IS IN! YES! DOING THE BUTTERFLY. 250M AUSTRALIA IS STILL IN THE LEAD. MILKY IS MOVING AHEAD. USA BACK IN THE LEAD AS OF THE 300. YES. LEZAK IS IN. I’M SORRY I’M BLOGGING IN CAPS BUT I TEND TO DO THAT WHEN I’M EXCITED!

LEZAK STILL IN THE LEAD. SULLIVAN IS CREEPIN UP ON HIM I’M STARTING TO SCREAM THIS IS NOT GOOD. OMG OMG OMG OMG HYES YES YES USA GETS GOLD AUSTRALIA SILVER AND JAPAN BRONZE.

8 GOLD MEDALS EIGHT EIGHT EIGHT GOLD MEDALS IN ONE OLYMPIC GAMES.

HOTTIE RELAY PREVAILS YES.

Ohhhhh my Godddddddldkjgfnkdsgfnkldss I am so excited I could puke. This is so important for our generation, say what you will about the games being trivial or whatever. My mom’s been arguing with me all week about how Mark Spitz is from her generation and blahblahblah. Milky is our generation and Milky has staked his claim on the games for all of us. I’M GETTING SO SENTIMENTAL RIGHT NOW OMG SHUT ME UP RIGHT NOW. I’m gonna go look for pictures in an effort to shut up.

AWWWW THEY JUST SHOWED THORPEY IN THE STANDS. He looks CUTE, man. But he does not look happy. Sigh. Be happy, Ian. I still love you and that’s something to smile about!

Aaahahaha Jason Lezak just said he did it for Kobe and Lebron. NICE.

Congratulations tonight to Aaron Peirsol, Brendan Hansen, Jason Lezak, and especially Michael Phelps. 8 for 8.
