Photos surfaced this week of 14-time Olympic swimming phenom Michael Phelps smoking weed. UK based News of the World were the first to show the pics of said Michael Phelps / Bong, and are going on as if this could ruin his career.
I'm going to file this one under "I really shouldn't care". Michael Phelps was out partying with some college kids and he took a toke from a bong. So what? I'd be more disturbed if he DIDN'T hit it. Would mean he's not human, but probably some type of super-alien. Which, in hindsight, shouldn't we already know from his ability to make people actually care about swimming as a sport?
I'm going to go on a limb and say Michael Phelps is the luckiest man alive. He's not traditionally handsome (and by that I mean he got beat by the ugly stick as a kid), but he's somehow become the hottest thing out there. Means he should be getting all sorts of tail. So let me tell you what should be going through the mind of Michael Phelps: Bong or Joint. He's pretty much peaked at the age of, what, 24?
Let him enjoy his retirement. He's deserved it.
