After Michael Phelps won his 8th gold medal:
Dad: He is going to get so many millions in endorsements now… he’ll be more famous than Michael Jordan. Everyone in the world is watching this.
Me: He won’t be that famous. Other countries aren’t paying that much attention to him. China doesn’t know who Phelps is. They’re just paying attention to basketball.
Dad: They’re just watching Ho Chi Minh.
Me: You mean Yao Ming?
Dad: Same thing.
