This morning (last night in Beijing), the French started talking trash about the American 4 x 100M mens relay team.  I believe the quote was, "The Americans? We will smash them.  That's what we came here to do." 

Usually, I keep my jingoism to myself... this, however, requires a response.  Especially considering the fact that the French had that race won, completely. 

But Then...

Somehow, our anchor, who was not Michael Phelps, swam down the French anchor from a body length behind to out-touch him at the wall and snatch glorious starred-and-striped victory from the jaws of Maginot-ish defeat. 

France? You got PWND!!

These moments are the reason I watch the Olympics.
