My only comment is that here on the west coast people are still watching the Women's Marathon.....they'll drag that out for awhile before showing Phelps...so, maybe edit the title to say "News about Phelps" and make it a spoiler?

Of course, it's out there on CNN and stuff, but people here might not be thinking they have to protect themselves from the drama (if they do.....I don't know if they do but it seems like some might...)

I kind of hate people who reach amazing accomplishments, especially in sport, without my written consent... unless I officially back the team/participant.

KJ, watch for my memo. Eliza, I share your concern but that's the way it is.

Meanwhile, consider the accomplishments of this amazing individual. Not only did Phelps win a record eight gold medals; he set seven world records and one Olympic record, doing a personal best time in every event. We will never see this again.

I agree with Eliza as I've often been burned by seeing news RESULTS posted as conversation topics before I even have the chance to read or boycott the results for myself.

I think a more careful approach and consideration in creating topic titles here would be appreciated on many fronts, and certainly as it relates to TREK topics as we get into real spoiler times ahead.

Taking a couple extra seconds to think before one types and submits such things won't hurt.

Not to mention there is ALREADY an Olympics thread going on this board, and this news would have fit nicely inside it -- doesn't require it's own spoiler-giving thread, and it would have been a better guarded revelation inside the Olympics thread (which I avoid reading for the same reason... but at least I have the choice not to open it).

Why be offended, the guy has worked hard for it. It's well deserved recognition for that effort.

Maybe that's the karmic payback for getting to live in California instead of somewhere like, say, New Jersey. Sure, we east coasters get to know stuff first sometimes, but you Cali folks get early football on Sundays, nice weather, and WAY hotter babes. No one ever wrote a song called "Rhode Island Girls."

(Don't mind me - I screwed up the spine last night so today it was s trip to the ER and then the pharmacy. Wheee!)
