    I just watched the video of Cullen through the link you provided. This is a really great kid and is a credit to NC State. I hope that the university will do more to promote his ties to NCSU. What a great race by the USA especially Lezak. France is talking a lot smack but it was the good ol’ USA that laid the smack DOWN!

    Cullen seems like a great young man and I am proud that he comes from the Wolfpack family. Cullen is only the second African-American swimmer to win a gold medal at the Olympics. He was interviewed this morning on the Today Show and he seemed very humble and well grounded. Way to go Cullen Jones and Team USA.
