    Just wanted to leave a note here about Gabby Douglas, a gymnast on the US Olympic Team. I don't normally follow that sport, but I watched the finals with my wife. Gabby won the gold medal, and during the interview, she gave credit to God above, and said that all the thanks and gratitude are to Him, but that God Himself has blessed her with this. It was a good - and seemed very sincere - testimony.

    For the record, her exact quote (I transcribed it myself) was:

    "I give all the glory to God, and it's kind of a win-win situation: the glory goes up to Him, and the blessings fall down on me."

    I agree that it was very sincere, and it made me feel even better about being a fan of hers.
