The comic Jim Gaffigan came out for a 20-minute riff that only marginally touched on swimming but did include references to Phelps and Subway sandwiches as well as Gaffigan’s much-applauded routine on Hot Pockets, the microwaveable turnover. That is what was fully and richly on display Monday night at the Marriott Marquis ballroom: a program that dares to dream big and that celebrates the role everyone plays in achieving those dreams, from support staff to coaches to athletes. In London, the swim team won 31 medals — 16 gold, nine silver, six bronze. Ricky Berens and Elizabeth Beisel didn’t just shake hands when they met at center stage; they executed a chest-bump.
Out in the hall there was a silent auction with all manner of stuff for sale — including a framed picture, signed by both Phelps and Serbia’s Milorad Cavic, of the 2008 Beijing 100-meter butterfly, which Phelps famously won by one-hundredth of a second. Indeed, when the night began with introductions across the stage, it wasn’t the athletes or the coaches who came first. And they got just as loud a round of applause from those on hand.

She said of the London Games, “I just had a blast … I love you.” “I’ve never been on a team that was a close as this one,” Dana Vollmer, the 100 fly winner who swam in the world record-breaking, gold medal-winning 4 x 100 women’s medley relay, along with Franklin, Rebecca Soni and Allison Schmitt, said.It has been even better to be your friend.” A few moments later came Phelps, introduced by the strange-but-awesome pairing of Donald Trump and Gary Hall Jr., the former sprint champion — on a night when the invite said, “Black Tie” — wearing, indeed, a funky black-and-white tie draped over a black T-shirt that blared out in pink letters, “Barbie,” the ensemble dressed up with a black jacket.
