... said it best in the Visa commercial that aired almost immediately after Michael Phelps won his 8th gold medal. We need some new adjectives.
The only adjective that keeps coming to my mind, over and over again, is the word 'incredible'. That word, the sound "Hmmph!" (however one writes that), a huge smile, and a feeling of extreme well-being have been pretty much the extent of my utterances, facial expressions, and general mood for the past couple of hours.
I didn't think it could be done. I didn't see how anyone could do it! I know he did it, but I'm still having trouble believing it actually happened -- even tho I watched every race. Hmmph! Just incredible.
