I've watched every single one of Phelps' races with my girlfriend. I've also seen a good amount of water polo, a lot of beach volleyball, some gymnastics, and a touch of handball.

One thing that I can't watch is track.

I saw that, in fact. It stopped right at the end. I wasn't laughing, however

Oh, anything electronic can malfunction. They just went to the camera to see whether or not it looked like Cavic won, and it was obvious that Phelps out touched him.
