Check out this photo, from this morning/last night's 100 meter butterfly finals:
That's Michael Phelps on the left, a split second before he and Cavic reached the wall. Look where his hands are. Look where Cavic's hands are.
And he won.
I am in awe.
"We being well satisfied with loyalty, courage, and good endowments of our trusty and well-beloved Nils Olav, and reposing entire trust and confidence in you, as a penguin, in every way qualified to receive the honor and dignity of knighthood, and the office aforesaid."
Nils Olav looks somewhat bemused by the whole affair, though he does an admirable job of walking in a straight line past the rows of guards standing at attention, and only very occasionally decides that some of them seem to require closer inspection.
Well done, Nils Olav. And well done, Harald V of Norway.
