Like millions of of people, I stayed up last night to watch Michael Phelps, Garrett Weber-Gale, Cullen Jones (photo) and Jason Lezak capture gold in the 4X100 freestyle relay. It was classic Olympics, from the come-from-behind win to the Phelps' scream heard around the world. Phelps also provided one of the best images of the young Beijing Games -- fists clenched, arms in the air, muscles tensed beyond belief as he celebrated.
Jones noticed Phelps, too. The swimmer, just the second African-American to snag gold in the pool, had this to say during a post-victory interview: "I have never seen [Phelps] squeeze and his six-pack jump out like that." Well said, Cullen. Well said.
