    Shawn Johnson feature on NBC

    How can you not get caught up in the Shawn Johnson hysteria?

    NBC just ran a feature about her, showing her "normal" life. following her to school, HyVee, and tooling around in her car (looked like a Land Rover).

    Lot's of local references, Murphy, Erin Kiernan, HyVee Hall of Pride.

    She really does seem like a humble kid. Hopefully she comes away with her first Gold medal tonight.

    My wife told me 10:15, but I can't confirm that. I do believe she checked though, as she won't be home until a bit after 10 tonight and wanted to make sure she got to see Shawn perform.

    Re: Shawn Johnson feature on NBC

    Hi, my other car is a Land Rover. Move over, buddy.

    Boy, those Chinese are good. They put some makeup on their new 16 year old to make her look older. interesting they switched up their players. Could ity b if one is ineligible in the future that we will find out thy had at least one legit 16 year old on the team? Hmmm. yeah, I know, glass houses..how about transparent paper houses....

    Re: Shawn Johnson feature on NBC

    OK, I'll go out on a limb and say I'm not that caught up in it. I'm interested, and I'm watching right now, but I'm getting kind of tired of hearing about it to be honest.

    I hope she does well. I'll just be glad when I don't have to hear about it every time I turn on the TV.

    There, I said it.

    Re: Shawn Johnson feature on NBC

    I sort of agree. I am kind of tired of Phelps. He is an amazing swimmer... but seriously he is not the elite athlete end all - be all.

    If they included four different types of 100 m dash, two 4x100 relays, 50m single leg dash and potato sack races Carl Lewis probably would have done the same.

    In essences I feel Phelps accomplishments are watered down... pun intended.


    Kinnick smells like syrup.

    Re: Shawn Johnson feature on NBC

    Maybe Carl Lewis might have lost the sack race. Carl if by Land, Mike if by Sea.

    Next controversy to unfold. Is Shawn Johnson actually 16?? She doesn't look much older than the Chinese girls. ;-)

    They were talking about that on beach volleyball. They said May-Walsh are probably the most dominant athletes in the games, but they can only max out at one medal... It's all about perspective.
