We can save the banter about the joy of actually winning a series for a change at a later date, I mean, after all, it was the Royals, it is our God given right to beat them so I'm not feeling like I should waste the space. (we'll talk about Moose and Gardner tomorrow)
What I want to talk about for a moment is all the attention that Michael Phelps is getting. The love fest of Phelps in the world of sports media is rivaling the level of Chris Matthews and his tingly leg when he hears Obama talk.
Let me make this analogy and then you can tell me where I'm wrong. If MLB legalized aluminum bats and then we saw someone break the single season HR record - is it legit or would you take a step back and say, it's not the same?
That's how I feel about this cat Phelps. He's breaking all of these records with a suit that adds buoyancy - essentially the aluminum bat of swimming. So, how in the world is it right to erase the achievements of the swimmers in the past? It's not.
Phelps is good, but he's not the best ever, nor is it right to say he is better than the Giambi 'stached guy from the Munich games.
Am I wrong?
