I saw that too!!! I was yelling at the top of my lungs, (during the final 50m) "C'mon you can beet him! GO! GO! GO! (pause as both teams touch the wall) YEAH! WE WON! NO WAY! YEAH!!" It was just an amazing comeback I can't wait for the other swimming events and for Track and Field.
Note: I also have permanent Olympic fever. I know more about olympic athletes than any other sport. You could sort of say I watch the Olympics religiously.
