    So will the fact that she's finished as an Olympic/World Championship medalist-caliber swimmer.

    You picked the wrong athlete to back, Minute Maid.

    To be fair, she is the top seed for the 200m backstroke, to come later in the week.

    The US Olympic charm school over polished her and she lost the genuiness of her youth. As her smile got bigger her times got slower.

    This commercial was much more genuine.

    I suppose I'm too much of a cynic. How ridiculously staged the whole thing was annoyed me.

    Yer damn right I am. That 2 minutes of dreck was a marketer and advertiser's wet dream. I don't buy that shit for one single, solitary second.
    #dogood at the end of the commercial. Blech.

    You you don't think her and her parents love each other?

    Dan and Dave don't think this is one of the worst advertising blunders ever.

    Maybe I'm cynical too. Do media members normally applaud an athlete at a press conference?

    Wait, did people actually think that was a real presser?

    Did you really think Mean Joe was limping into that tunnel after actually playing against Oakland or Cleveland, and the kid was randomly standing there with a Coke and a smile?
