a dip in the yangtze

I know everyone's been all about the men's 4x100 relay, and I mean, rightly so. It was everything an athletic event could ever hope to be. But still, that Olympic moment was topped for me.

It was topped when, amidst a flurry of celebrations over earning an unexpected bronze medal in men's gymnastics, USA's Jonathan Horton suddenly turned to the camera and cried out in utter jubilation,
We're going swimming in the river TONIGHT!!!

Oh heck yes.

Celebratory festivities do not get any better than that.

I'd say that is an even more eventful alternative to "We're going to Disneyland." I approve, Jonathan Horton, of the declaration, and your mad awesome gymastic skills.

Jonathan Horton is a machine. The river would rust him out.

This is the first time when I've been unable to distinguish whether that comment came from my brother or my friend. That seems like something capable of coming out of either one of their mouths. Or... fingers.

I guess I better start signing my name like this, to avoid confusion. ;)

'Twas me.
