United States Men Beat Frogs For Gold!!!

The USA men who were underdogs to the vaunted French 4x100 swimming relay team pulled off an upset tonight in the Olympics and won the Gold medal.

In addition to the Gold Medal they broke all prevoius world records for that event.

The best part is that when one of the French swimmers was asked awhile back about facing the Americans in this event at the Olympics he stated that the Americans were why they were coming to the Olympics and that the French team was going to crush the Americans!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL!!!!

Nothing was ever said about apparel, for everyone was so taken up with the Lord that mode of dress seemingly never occurred to any of us."

I'd beat a frog for gold any day of the week! (Note to animal rights activists: Just kidding). And with that, I must sign off for it is waaaay past this old mans bed time.

Re: United States Men Beat Frogs For Gold!!!

That's the moment of the Olympics so far.
------------
And did you see the look on the French men's' faces when they realized we beat them?

PRICELESS!

In my part of the continent, Frog is a derogatory term.


(but only if you're French)

I am not Fench, but I find the use of the term "Frogs" tasteless and offensive.

Just one more reason not to live in your part of the continent apparently!

Any place that is so concerned over the feelings of the French does not sound like a good place to be.
