Bring It On

Congratulations to swimmer Michael Phelps, who has won his eighth gold medal of the Beijing games. This sets a new record for the number of golds won by an individual at a single Olympics. The previous mark of seven had been set by Mark Spitz at the 1972 Munich games.

That's all fine and dandy, but can Phelps simultaneously operate six different remotes, controlling half a dozen electronic components of a home entertainment system, all while removing a cold can of Bud from the built-in cooler in the armrest of his recliner?

I'm ready to defend my title any time he thinks he's man enough to challenge me.
