Seriously, guys. This issue is being overblown way too much. A picture was taken of him smoking marijuana. Asking him if he has stopped taking drugs is a bit different, isn’t it? Anyway, all that Phelps has to say is “I don’t take drugs. I get drug tested all the time. You can look at the record and you can see.”
Michael Phelps, the golden boy of the Beijing Olympics has proven that he is human after all. He gave a statement admitting to the authenticity of the picture showing him smoking marijuana, published in a British tabloid. He apologized to fans and the public and said that it will never happen again.
Ok, its about as juicy as what my dog ate for breakfast (yes, dogfood), but one can’t help but wonder about the sort of woman this hugely successful Olympic swimmer would take home to meet his omnipresent Mother? He’s had more than his fair share of lady admirers slash girlfriends, especially since his amazing victories in Beijing, but it never seemed serious.
Well, the scoop is that he’s taking one home to spend Thanksgiving in Baltimore with the fam today. Could it be a mermaid? Sadly not, she’s a Las Vegas cocktail waitress called Caz. All that time in Vegas has also revealed another passion for the Fishy Phelps, poker. He even went as far as to say that he hoped to compete in the World Series of Poker next year.
