I avoided Little Tokyo like the plague, last week. Darn, since the Los Angeles neighborhood was in the midst of hosting its annual Nisei Week Festival. Nisei Week includes a gyoza (dumpling) eating contest with a purse of $1500. If you've ever seen me eat, you know I could have been a real contender for that prize money.

Before Phelps there was Ajumma's favorite, Olympic champion Alexander Popov (Александр Попов). Hailing from Russia, Popov won 4 Olympic gold medals, 6 world championships and dozens of European medals in swimming from 1991-2003. He's most recognized for his powerful and efficient stroke, which Phelps and his coach have studied in detail. Popov, nicknamed "The Russian Rocket," retired from swimming after the Athens games in 2004.
Popov currently acts as a member of the International Olympic Committee which determined Sochi, Russia as the host for the 2014 Winter Games. He is also a spokesperson for Omega Watches which invited Popov and swimmer Ian Thorpe to the opening of their Omega Pavilion in Beijing last week.

If we're talking kids, there are Wolverive party favors. These claws are made out of foam, but can undoubtably still inflict damage. (Not recommended for pacifists or parents with a shred of common sense.)
