Olympic Highlights I'm Going for the Gold!

Real Estate Agent with Helping people in transition 210155

Michael Phelps.....Yeah he's OK.

The Chinese girl's gymnastics team.....Sure, they're great. But not without controversy.

Shawn Johnson, Lebron James, Tyson Gay........Yawn, yawn, yawn!!!

This year, at the 2008 Summer Olympic Games, the one to watch is Craig Rutman, the USA's weightlifting phenom.

At a whopping 150 pounds (fully clothed, dripping wet!) and standing not much taller than most 12 year olds at 5 feet - 6-1/2", Craig has risen to heights most people only dream about. He's not just a Realtor, he's America's greatest hope for success in Beijing!

Follow Craig's quest for Gold as he joins some of the World's greatest athletes in Beijing.

First I get a video of you running for President, and now this...+ the realtor gig. You are a man of great diversity and talent. By the way, didn't you wear those blue boots to the last closing?

Jeff....thank you for recognizing my "great diversity and talents"!!!

And as far as those blue boots go....Yes, I did wear them to the last closing. But that's all I wore! And now I've been banned from that closing office!!! Go figure!

Craig, best of luck for the Gold, but if this is your size now, how big were you before the steroids?

Man, I knew you had a big head but now it looks like it is figuratively and reality.  That is funny:)

Funny video, (you have way too much time on your hands), but then again so do the rest of us that are watching your funny videos.

Thanks for the laugh
