    I'm rooting for Lochte

    The constant fluff on Michael Phelps and his mother made me sick of him. Plus, Ryan's hotter

    Ryan Lochte

    I'm surprised Phelps didn't medal; granted he wasn't good this morning. I don't know much about swimming, so I'm just assuming he was expected to medal. In the US Media, it was certainly portrayed that it was Lochte vs Phelps battle.

    Lochte!

    This was probably the event that Phelps was least likely to medal in. Some people thought that he wasn't even going to try for this event this time around.

    I'm shocked Phelps at least didn't grab a medal. While I'd heard he hadn't swam well this morning, he's done that before, so...Wow!!

    Holy Crap Ryan!! Way to make a statement of these are *my* Games!! What a swim!!

    I suppose it is too much to hope that Phelps loses all his races.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    Loathe, loathe, loathe when crowds chant country names in individual sport.

    He was definitely expected to medal. He had the second highest time in the world this year with more than 2 seconds over the next highest swimmer actual competing. This was definitely a shock even though Phelps was originally not expected to swim this race this year.

    It's either a very big ice rink, or there's a lake under there.

    Was out, missed the first couple events. Interested in seeing if MyGirlNatalie is in the relays. If so, hope she

    He's that luurvely combination of manho & momma's boy.

    BTW for other USers - I found some coverage in one of those places where we also find FS and tennis. But it's like watching the anti-NBC - I didn't even realize VanderKaay had medaled.
