    Phelps response to it?

    "I am very, very concerned about my extensive contact with gold medals," Mr. Phelps told reporters. "But what am I supposed to do? Stop being so awesome?"

    Figures! First it was lead paint in kids' toys. Now this. Can't say I'm suprised at all.

    That would be awesome if he would actually say that. Maybe he will say something like that after gold medal # 8

    In other Olympic news, China's hopes for winning more medals in women's gymnastics were dashed when one of their leading gymnasts vanished down a bathtub drain on Tuesday.

    funny stuff:

    In other Olympic news, China's hopes for winning more medals in women's gymnastics were dashed when one of their leading gymnasts vanished down a bathtub drain on Tuesday.
    Immediately after Jiang Qimin's disappearance, Beijing authorities launched a search for the acclaimed seven-pound athlete.
    Jiang had been the subject of speculation earlier this week as many foreign observers doubted China's claims that the two-foot-tall gymnast was sixteen years old.

    The gold bug guys will say it takes nine gold medals to equal one real gold medals. Right, Mike? Be like Mike.
