The Phelps scream shot will be an SI photo for sure.

The anchor for the Americans is a fucking stud.

Amazing race. I'm glad I stayed up.

Israeli announcer was going crazy. Especially after talking for the last 75 meters about how Phelps won't get 8 gold medals. WOW.

46.06 final split. Seriously, that might have been the greatest swim ever.

Leezak = humongous fucking brass balls.

What a race. Five teams went under the world record.

That replay down the lane of Phelps losing his mind at the finish is great. The look on his face between the end of the race and when the times were posted is priceless.

Fuck France.

Just for the record, Jamie is French. I haven't had an opportunity to make this much fun of him since the start of the war. Sweet.

Going back and watching there is one AMAZING still frame where it shows the French team in the forefront completely deflated, and in the background is Phelps screaming on the jumbotron. Seriously, if you can go back and watch that do so.

That event was the biggest question mark for Phelps and his quest for 8 golds. He or his relay team is considered the favorite in the rest of his events.
