I admit, I love the Olympics - Winter more than Summer but they're both great. And this year, we SO ROCK! Phelps aside, who was fantastic I agree but let's move on.

Did you see that 400M hurdle?

We swept the medals for the first time since 1960. The 3 who won, Angelo Taylor, Kerron Clement, and Bershawn Jackson knew what they wanted going to Beijing, knew they were going to do it, and even knew it hadn't been done since the 1960 Rome Olympics. They knew those runners names as well - Glenn Davis, Clifton Cushman, and Dick Howard. Is that not worthy of press coverage? I think so, and they should get all they deserve. Sure, what Phelps did was phenomenal, and rightly deserves the media attention, but there are hundreds of other athletes competing - and winning. Let's give them the attention they deserve as well.

NBC covers the games, as do their multiple affiliates - MSNBC, CNBC, USA, probably more. If you get the chance, check them out. Or go to the site, it's packed with everything you need to know about the games and more. http://www.nbcolympics.com/

Addition: Read more about Angelo Taylor's miraculous comeback from Sydney to Athens to Beijing. Congratulations, man, you deserve it all!
