Eight looks really great

Okay so we're not going to promise that we'll never get off-topic again because, really, what fun is that? But history was made tonight and it deserves recognition. Michael Phelps won his eighth gold medal to go eight for eight in Beijing and become the first person in Olympic history to win eight gold medals in one Olympic games surpassing Mark Spitz's record of seven. If you didn't watch this all unfold, you were missing out. There were blowout wins, and wins by a fingernail for lots of drama and ups and downs. At 23 years old, it's not too bad to be Michael Phelps, not too bad at all.

Others can probably say it better than we can, so you can read coverage here.

Over at the PG on the Steelers front there are a few articles. Troy Polamalu could return to practice on Tuesday, Steelers notebook says Santonio Holmes will return some punts during the next preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings, and an article about Stanley Druckenmiller.

In Penguins news, Seth over at Empty Netters had a post today about Ryan Whitney missing 3-5 months and a link to an article.
