Perhaps the best moment of the 2008 Olympics came late Sunday night when the United States’ men’s 400-meter freestyle relay swim team smoked France to win the gold. (Even better it was on live television)
The indelible image comes from Michael Phelps cheering on teammate Jason Lezak to victory. True, this moment likely will end up as a footnote to Phelps’ eight gold-medal effort this week, but I couldn’t help at laugh when I saw him screaming for what seemed like an hour. He no longer looked like Michael Phelps, Super Athlete. He looked like McLovin from SuperBad.
