If you think about it, this makes his ability to swim fast even more incredible

pret The British tabloid News of the World has obtained photographs which they claim show Michael Phelps, the 14 time gold medal winner, smoking from a glass pipe (read: bong) which they claim contained marijuana. Now this is breaking news, so Phelps’ people have not yet issued a statement.

However, what I found most interesting about News of the World‘s report was not the fact that they discovered that a twenty three year old male may have been smoking weed, but was the situation in which he did. The article reports:

It was on November 6, weeks after his Beijing triumph, that 23-year-old Phelps surprised students at the University Of South Carolina in Columbia by showing up unannounced at a house party.

That is so incredibly cool and so incredibly weird at the same time. You know that Entourage episode where Vinnie goes to that kids house party and parties with them the day Aquaman was released? This must have been like that except a million times cooler/weirder. What would you talk about with him? Swimming? That jerk Australian who said he couldn’t win 8 golds? How lousy he was on SNL a few months ago?

Don’t get me wrong, it must have been a thrill to have man with more more gold than Fort Knox holds at this particular moment at your party, but I just don’t know what he could have possibly had in common with anyone else in the party. You know, aside from the desire to be around dozens of inebriated college chicks.

Anyways, I suppose that gives America another thing to look forward to tomorrow. We get to watch the Super Bowl and get to hear a statement from Phelps’ apologizing for letting America down. Not a bad day.

    i’ve gotta hand it to Phelps for being man enough to acknowledge his actions and apologize — he’s still a decent role model despite the hypocritical media storm
