    Really, Mel. I’m not sure if I should thank you or if I should just start hyperventilating. You win. Thank you? I hate you? I’m not sure what I feel right now.

    Which Ryan Lochte does, it’s like “poetry in movement”. He is absolutely stunning. I really wish he keeps swimming and shines over and over again in the pool.
    He looks like a really good guy, and I don’t like when dumb people jokes about him, it is not fair. I like him a lot, not just for his handsome figure, because he is a great swimmer. I want him in Rio 2016 rocking the pool. Thanks Mel for the pics.
