Too Good to be True?

Did anyone else see this last night?!

It took us quite a few replays on DVR last night to convince ourselves that this race was not rigged in Phelps' favor. might wonder?

If I could only be so great. Maybe, even a few inches taller, too. He's a stud. Not better than my Paul, but ya know what I mean. WOW - he's fast!

He truly is a work of art, that Phelps. I've got a semi schoolgirl crush....kinda. What an intense moment. You'll love this Kim, Matt and I were at Kona Grill enjoying our date on Friday night sitting at the bar eating our sushi when this was on the big screen right in front of was IN-CRED-IBLE!
