HERE’S AN IDEA. The Olympics are “supposed to be” about the worldwide fraternity of Sports as a human activity to bring us ALL together. HOW ABOUT limiting any Olympic athlete to THREE Gold Medals in any one Olympics. That should be enough to satisfy even the most GREEDY. Instead the LEAD story on the news every day is WILL PHELPS WIN EIGHT GOLD MEDALS. Why should so many other excellent swimmers from all over the world be deprived of a chance at GLORY because ONE swimmer wins everything.
( and it happens every four years with an American swimmer )
THINK ABOUT IT
Would it really be TERRIBLE if after Michael Phelps – or any other athlete – wins THREE Gold Medals in an Olympic that they cannot compete for any more until the next Olympics. Even if you are a XENOPHOBIC ( look it up ) American who thinks we should dominate the Olympics just like we do Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and on nd on. IF Phelps hit his limit of 3 there are plenty of other American swimmers who would likely win the other Gold.
For instance Cullen Jones
THAT BRINGS US TO THE REAL STORY that should be dominating American Olympic coverage today and yesterday. Not Michael Phelps winning his 2nd of 8 Olympic Gold Medals but Cullen Jones becoming THE FIRST AFRICAN AMERICAN TO EVER WIN AN OLYMPIC GOLD MEDAL IN SWIMMING doing it in the 4 man 4 x 100 meter free style relay in which Michael Phelps won his second Gold Medal.
IF YOU THINK that Anthony Erwin was the FIRST African American to win an Olympic Gold Medal in Swimming down in Sydney Australia way back in 2000 think again. See today’s Black Box POSTSCRIPT below.
Now watch and listen
to Cullen Jones talk
about Olympic Gold
Here is a photo of Anthony Erwin who some claim is the first AFRICAN American to win an Olympic Gold Medal in Swimming because one of his parents is African American. If Anthony Erwin is the First African American to win a Gold Medal in Swimming then Bill Clinton must really be the FIRST AFRICAN American President and might as well call George W. Bush the SECOND AFRICAN American President. Skin color does not matter.
Here is Anthony Erwin with his Gold Medal
you decide if he is AFRICAN American
CONGRATULATIONS CULLEN JONES !!
