I’ve been able to catch a little bit of the olympics recently and of course the front running story has to be Michael Phelps. Talk about a very storied career for that cat. The most medaled olympic athlete ever. Wow. Wow. Wow. I wonder how long it will take to for someone to overtake Michael Phelps? Seriously. Look at all the records Michael Phelps has set. In some cases those records were outright smashed, shattered, destroyed.
I found myself literally shouting at the TV screen in excitement while watching Michael Phelps and the rest of the US swim team. Who knew that swimming could elicit such a response? I didn’t. I swim on occasion and that’s about it. I never did it for competition. I do it for fun. It makes me wonder if Michael Phelps will ever be able to swim for fun.
The great thing for Michael Phelps is that he has a lifetime of endorsements, public speaking engagements, and coaching ahead of him. People will stand in awe of him for a long time to come based on his achievement. I know I will. Will you?
Which kinda leads me to today’s pick. It hails off the swimfan movie soundtrack. Yeah, it’s a band that probably doesn’t need much for publicity, but more often than not, I’m choosing music based around things that I’m yapping/typing about.
Of course being the type of band and the type of music, it’s glaringly obvious to hear that it’s well produced. The standard start of a mellow stance, then build, build, build. Then pow, right into the chorus and away we go. It’s sorta the same feeling I’ve been getting watching Michael Phelps destroy the competition in the Olympics. Don’t you agree?
Dig the song, go get it my friend!
