LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Millions of fans across the globe have been glued to their television screens this summer watching the 2008 Beijing Olympics and it appears even celebrities like Jessica Alba and her husband, Cash Warren, are hooked.
“I don’t know about you all but Cash and I have been glued to the Olympics,” she wrote in a MySpace Celebrity blog. “How amazing was the opening ceremony?!? I still don’t know how they coordinated 2008 people to move in perfect sync.”
And like many Americans, Alba was particularly entranced by the Men’s 4 x 100 Freestyle Relay, which found Michael Phelps and his teammates fly past the French to a gold medal victory.
“The men’s 400M relay was insane,” Alba recounted. “We were down by almost a half body length going into the final turn and then next thing you knew it was closer, closer, closer until we touched the wall first! Cash and I went crazy. The shot of Michael Phelps after the race ended cheering with his teammates is so memorable. The last time I got this excited watching sports was when Baron was in the NBA playoffs.”
