Now That's Entertainment: Much was made over swimmer Michael Phelps's fourth place finish in the men's 400 IM and not nearly enough over Ryan Lochte's golden effort. Couldn't Lochte's success be celebrated without boo hooing Phelps's dismal fourth place finish?
Phelp's says he's finished after the London Olympics. Lochte says he's here to finish first. The difference in attitude is telling.
Four years ago in Beijing there were thrills in and out of the water for Phelps and his medley relay team.
Turning on the tears:The sap always flows during the Olympics and it is most manipulative in the commercials. There are a number of touching video moments that have yet to become overused primarily because they are running in Britain. We get bombarded by David Dewhurst and Ted Cruz the Brits get David Beckham, superhumans and moms.
