I'm sure NBC producers were all over her 24/7. It's not her fault she was a tad overexposed.

I think she did a great job, but I'm not crazy about NBC playing up Phelps' ADHD. That's not exactly a Forrest Gump-type crutch.

Chris, I had always thought you were a complete idiot, now I am certain you are after you insult Phelp's Mother. Your blog is a waste of my time. Get a life you poor little boy!

God you're a moron Chris. Whoever has the television contract for the Olympics ALWAYS shows the families of the winners. Phelps won or was part of a winning relay team EIGHT times. He WAS the big story of the Olympics so far. This is neither pandering, abnormal, or anything for you to whine about - except you always whine.

I'm not seeing LeBron James' mom ad nauseum at the Olympics. Nor Usain Bolt's mom. (And Bolt's story is arguably even cooler than Phelps). Nor any other athlete's mom, girlfriend, former high school coach or maid anywhere close to the degree we got Phelps' mom.

It's definitely far beyond the usual. You can love every minute of it if you want. Just don't pretend it's not a serious camera love on Phelps' mom's part too.

It's part of NBC's great big Phelps orgy. They even found time to interview in the primetime broadcast one night. What she has to do with swimming fast in a pool only God knows. But NBC is a gang of mediawhores so it's what they do. They started their orgy from before the Olympics and had one hug orgasm the whole fricking week.

Geez Chris you must be as blind as you are stupid. I saw Bolt's mom every time he ran.

The point wasnt whether or not NBC was showing athletes' loved ones in the stands. They showed a lot of relatives of all the athletes. The point was their obsession with Debbie Phelps bordered on insanity. Like I said it was a Phelps orgy. Thinking critically isnt a strong suit if people can't see the difference between say seeing Lauryn Williams mom and the giant all encompassing worship of Debbie Phelps
