The U.S. Wins the 4x100 Freestyle Relay and Continues Phelps Quest For 8
The U.S. broke the world record yesterday in the best event so far. Before the race the French stated that they were going to "crush" the American swim team, and low and behold the final 50 meters the French had a lead and it came down to the final second as the U.S. won by a hand length.
Phelps now is two for two in his quest for 8 golds, which would give him the record for the mosy golds in a single Olympiad. He has the 200 meter freestyle finals up tonight.

The U.S. proved that they are the front-runners for the gold with their performance, and every player on that team added something to their highlight reel. The United States playes Angola on Wedsenday in what should be another blowout.
Adam Dunn Sent to the Dbacks in Four Player Trade
The Arizona Diamondbacks have got some firepower to answer the deals the Dodgers made at the deadline as they got Ciuncinatti slugger Adam Dunn in a four player deal that sent prospects to Cincinatti.
Arizona is currently in first place in the NL West and the Dodgers are trailing at their heels. I still think that Adam Dunn will not be enough to keep the Backs on top as it seems that the Dodgers are just to good.
