The rumor really is true: Carly Simon did write "You're So Vain" about Mark Spitz...

Waaaahhh. What a baby. He's totally bitter. Does anyone remember when he challenged Tom Jager to a 50 free race about 10 years ago and he got smoked?? He lost a 50 by about 4 body lengths. And I love that he's moaning, whining and complaining so much, and that he's a motivational speaker. hahahaha

OJ isn't bitter about his football records being broken. Consequently, he has switched over to the Olympic knife throwing contest and is really slicing through the competition. Hey, did anyone ever notice that the wonderful Chinese "Birds Nest" complex looks like a damned bed pan when viewed in all it's glory from a helicopter? Could there be a turd inside?

It's a shame he feels so bitter about it, just leaves a bad taste in everyone's mouth. Too bad he couldn't be gracious.
