    Famigliette had the potential to medal if he ran the race he ran in the semis. Instead he couldn't even break 8:30

    You can't expect him to run too well in a tactical final.

    I actually found it quite humorous that you can train all those hours each day for years and years, and have that happen when it really matters.

    It sounded funnier in my head. Neutral

    Sad

    Yes, because everytime there is criticism of America, I must be a communist country hating bastard. And pessimistic? I would be pessimistic if I said we were going to win no gold medals. I merely provided a brief recap of what happened to America because of their stupid mistakes and overconfidence. Maybe Phelps got them thinking that they are gods and can just lay off until the finals. I love Bubba Thornton, but he didn't have his guys prepared mentally at all.
