It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

You know, they say there was a man who jumped from the forty-FIFTH floor? But that's another story...

I don't think even Ryan Lochte understands Ryan Lochte. No big shock there as there's not much Ryan Lochte does understand.

Do you also have trouble "getting" Michael Phelps?

What's to get? Has he been in the news lately?

I guess I don't spend enough time thinking about Ryan Lochte to even realize that I don't get it.

Ryan is just a local boy to me. He is from here.

HE works hard and does the right thing. That's about it.

But in today's messed up world, that is pretty big.

Oh, wait, that's that swimmer.

And for some reason I think I REALLY SHOULD know who he is.

As accomplished athletes, no. As people worth following their every move in their personal lives, yes.

While I can respect Phelps accomplishments, I have zero respect for his work ethic, and thereby, zero respect for Phelps himself.

However, to argue against myself -

A person that is so naturally talented that he needs no real training to be able to preform at a world class level must be awesome.

I just can't help but think how many more metals Phelps would have won had he actually trained.


I think that statement is the heart of the Lochte craze.

Ryan does not have much real talent like Phelps. He just trained hard and proved to the world that working hard can get you where you want to be.

As for the man Lochte is - I do not really care. He could be dumb as rocks.

I just respect Lochte as an athlete.

Wasn't he so...last year? Wasn't he the guy who won some medals, but nowhere near what was expected/hyped? Who was that gymnast or figure skater or whoever from 12 years ago who was thrown into our faces and is now forgotten?

I honestly think Phelps did not train seriously, nor properly.

Several articles were written about his lack of seriousness in his training and outright dislike for it. He even showed up for the Olympic training days late.

Look it up.

You all have apparently not heard of What Would Ryan Lochte Do? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/What_Would_Ryan_Lochte_Do%3F

I agree with the OP.
