    Gee, you mean he's not just like his character on TV?

    Yeah! That's EXACTLY WHAT I MEANT! I mean, I thought he was gonna come on and be all "Oh it's true, it's true" and "WHATCHA GONNA DO" and all that....

    No jackass, what I meant was that he almost sounded like he was accepting an inevitable defeat (the part I heard anyway-the interview was probably a good 15 minutes long, but I only heard about 5-8 min.). I mean yes, he is the underdog imo, but you would think with a gold medal under his belt that he would sound a little more confident. You know, like an actual athlete?

    Actual athletes are also characters on TV; they just don't have scriptwriters so they are stuck with canned phrases like "I'm here to win", "I like to fight/swim/play basketball...this is my life!" and I"m gonna give it a-hundred-and-ten percent." Don't believe the hype.

    It's letting people know he's serious about this. Lesner's humble pie made a fan out of me. Not because I think he's arrogant, but because he's giving this thing a real shot and not trying to cash in on his persona.
