Postby NorthSider2 » Sun Jun 29, 2008 8:17 pm

Read in the Boston Globe this morning about a bunch of companies speculating on big endorsements with him before he had even qualified for the Olympics. I guess those investments paid off. :-D

It isn't a record.
His time of 9.68 seconds at the U.S. Olympic trials Sunday doesn’t count as a world record, because it was run with the help of a too-strong tailwind. Here’s what does matter: Gay qualified for his first Summer Games team and served notice he’s certainly someone to watch in Beijing.

No CG thought that this thread was about car racing.

I like you Yoda, you're OK in my book. ;-D

And before you or anyone else asks, no I have not nor do I plan on racing a car or becoming a race car driver not that there would be anything wrong with it if I had or was. :-B
