|So, the French men's swim team wants to talk a little merde and say that they are going to "smash" the Americans in the relay medley? When will you Frenchies learn that the worst way to beat Americans is to talk trash on us first? It only motivates us further. Congrats to Michael Phelps and the US men's swimming crew. I'll give it to the French though, they were gracious and congratulated the Americans at the medal ceremony. A great, world record smashing race.
