Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.

Because I'm THAT important

One of my favorite Olympians as a child growing up was Mark Spitz. I can vaguely remember those 1972 Olympics. I definitely remember all the hype following Spitz throughout my childhood.

Now, instead of being a proud American holding the record for the most gold medals, he has turned into a bitter dude hawking botox. Oh how the mighty have fallen.

I'm really sad.

    I read that and just got sick. How horrible to be that wrapped up in yourself, instead of supporting the next generation. I lost all respect I had for his accomplishments.

    And, you'll notice, they only mentioned his name during commentary when they absolutely had to. Got the feeling he's made a habit of pissing people off.

    Sounds a little bitter to me. My question, why not just go and watch? Why do you need an engraved invitation to go? Just curious.

    I hope Michael breaks his record. He has five...only 3 left.

    Hey Spitz...build that bridge and get over it.
