    I'm with Frank, for all the wrong reasons...
     
  9. Who sings the song on the GM commercial shown during the olympics?

    That's a question that's being repeated all over the internet. The song and the voice of the singer are hauntingly beautiful.

    I tracked her down. The singer is Brandi Carlile from the Pacific Northwest. The song is "My Story". Here she is, performing it on youtube.

  10. Carl Lewis

    OK - so I'm showing my age...

  11. Thanks for the link to that, Frank. I'd never heard the song or seen the commercial but going to YouTube is so easy, especially when someone posts a link to a specific video, and now that I've heard it I can see why it's so popular.
     
  12. I am going to say Jason Lezak, after being denied, in 2000 and 2004, he would not be denied again. Maybe the best 100 meters ever swam.

  15. Phil, GUO Jinjing is beautiful. Are you rooting for the athlete or the model?
     
  16. Hey Uncle Frank - Speaking of butt slaps, did you see the segment on Kerri Walsh losing her wedding ring? The ending was priceless! :biggrin:
     
  17. That song, "The Story," is beautiful! It's available on iTunes....
     
  18. Nancy and I were rolling on the floor laughing. The shocked look on the good samaritan's face was, as you said, priceless.
