Nathan Adrian, you are the man.

You swim much faster than others can.

Michael Phelps?  Lochte?  Who?

Don't care about them.  I just love you.

Your mom's Chinese.  Your dad is white.

You went to Cal.  Your grades were tight.

You swam in syrup for science's sake.

You blew through the 100 like it was cake.

  3. Such an awesome post and he is too adorable. Hubby told me he's met a couple of times at NCAA swimming championships and he's a really nice guy. Very humble, willing take pics and sign autographs. LOL at Mythbusters guys were even amazed with his physique!

    1. Well, I happen to appreciate his mind and personality.

    2. The fact that the dinner plate has a sharp mind *and* a winning personality should be reason enough for people get on the Nathan Adrian bandwagon three times over.
