Holmgren on the Olympics

Posted by Jose Romero

Coach Mike Holmgren was asked by KING-TV Thursday what Olympic event he would compete it in his prime as an athlete.

"I threw the discus a little in college {at USC]. It'd be fun to win the gold medal in the discus. Those guys, I'm always amazed at those big men and how they can do those kinds of things. But after practice and our meetings, I tune in around midnight and watch some of the stuff. And what Michael Phelps is doing, I mean, it's remarkable. He seems like a good guy, and it's just wonderful.”

Gotta love Phelps. What a performance.
