On NBC, Meilutyte rhymes with Kryptonite
And well it should. Ruta Meilutyte plowed through the Olympic pool like a superwoman or aquatic Energizer Bunny in both the prelims and semi-finals of the Womens' 100 meter breast stroke. She swims for the Gold today at 3:15 PM NYC time (8:15 PM London time) and it would be a real morale booster for all of us Lithuanians and Lithuanian/Americans in OLV country to see her atop the podium as the Lithuanian flag is raised and the anthem played. Although I have been reproached for trying to get Our Lady to influence athletic events in the past, I think that we should certainly place our hopes before Ausros Vartu Marija and ask for Her intercession.
