Michael Phelps Officially Greatest Human Being Ever

Posted by thelanetrain on August 17, 2008

Last night east coast time, Michael Phelps picked up his 8th gold medal of the Beijing Olympics, setting a new record of number of gold medals achieved in a single games, surpassing former record-holder Mark Spitz, and in the process, set seven world records and one olympic record.  Dang.  Rumors are swelling that Phelps (like his predecessor) may retire after these games and accomplishing this feat, but who knows.

In any case, now that the Olympics have peaked after 1 week, is there anything left to watch?  Yes.
