Big Al salutes the 2008 Olympians

I'd like to thank all the people representing the USA at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.  You've once again proved that despite all the stuff that I need to do in life, I can watch sports 24 hours a day for 2 weeks straight and still feel good.

(John Koncak aka John Contract with Big Al and Koncak junior showcasing the 1984 USA Basketball Gold medal.)

Big ups to Natalie Coughlin, St. Catherine's School alum.  Big ups to Michael Phelps for making me eagerly await an event that showcased half naked guys.

(Big Al and a 2006 Women's Hockey Silver medalist.  2nd place is the first loser!  Check out Santa Clause in the background.)

I'm almost 30 and I do see a few folks that are well up in age there like Dara Torres.  I'm glad they didn't drown because it would sucked to see that on NBC.  My post-30 Olympic dream is still alive.  Big Al - Underwater Basketweaving Gold Medalist 2012!!!
