Le Coq-ky French Eat Le Crow

The Americans? We will smash them.

–Alain Bernard, French Olympic Swim Team

Hey Alain, don’t look now, but you just got caught and passed on the anchor leg by a 32-year-old American.

Pard-one my jingoism, but Le Crow is a dish best served cold.

Bon appetit.

    Yikes! This one just got picked up here.

    Come one, come all!

    Home of the brave, baby.

    And those tasty Freedom Fries…

    Oh, and this great quote from another French swimmer:

    “A fingertip did the victory,” said Amaury Leveaux, one of the French swimmers. “It is nothing.”

    I beg to differ: It is the difference between gold and silver, which is most definitely not “nothing.”

    That was simply outstanding. It’s going to be hard to find a better moment than that one, even with most of the games ahead of us.

    It sure will. I don’t anticipate any of the basketball games being this close (but you never know). Still, seeing a Coach K-led US squad mounting the podium and taking the gold would rival it.

    And maybe Lopez Lomong medaling in the 1500 meters too…
