    Watching Michael Phelps today made me wonder: What do you do on the medal stand as the anthem is played? Hand over heart or not? For me, no. I've never been a hand-over-heart guy even though I love my country. Do I break into a huge grin? Absolutely. Sing along? Perhaps. Mug for the camera? Most likely at some point. Other thoughts?

    I stand there with a goofy looking grin on my face, amazed to be standing there, even if I was the event's favorite.

    Put a black glove on my left hand and raise my fist.

    After he was waving the flag backwards on the other side of the stadium cheering you on? Horrible. ;D

    I'm with SC. I'd be bawling so hard I'd be lucky to find the medal stand.

    Funny that Two Gloves didn't say, uh, two gloves.

    Two gloves probably doesn't know about 1968.

    Seriously, I would not do the glove thing. I'd ask them to just give me my medal and cut out the bullshit anthem ceremony.
