I like your idea for a drinking game...any sport can be made into a drinking game though right?
Anybody think that Phelps won't walk away with all 8 Gold's?
Two factors for this. He had another medal race earlier in the day with the 200 Meter Butterfly. Yes, the Butterfly is his easiest event, but I don't know if that'll be a factor in his fatigue for the relay.
Plus, in the last team relay... his teammates came through for him. I don't know if he'll have the same teammates for this one, so you never know.
Then on Thursday Night/Friday Morning (China time), he has a tough 200 individual medley. I believe it's fellow American Ryan Lochte that will give him a hell of a challenge. You would think that Lochte would get 2nd on purpose so Phelps could achieve the goal of 8 gold medals. But I don't think any athletes believe in that.
They'd want to go 1-2 either way, but who knows.
Friday Night/Saturday Morning (China Time), it's the 100 Butterfly. The Butterfly is his strongest event, so I think he can do it easily.
Last of all, he has another team relay. The 4x100 medley relay. I don't know what to expect here, but his teammates should be more than capable of handling it. By the time this race happens, we'll know if Phelps has 7 gold medals already or not. This could be icing on the cake, for his team to get it for him.
Who knows. It's definitely a tough task overall... since no one else can pull it off.

I'd put some money on that. Great odds in my opinion.
