Jeff Pearlman, author of “The Bad Guys Won” and the upcoming “The Rocket That Fell To Earth : Roger Clemens And The Rage For Baseball Immortality”, considers the case of Olympian weed fiend Michael Phelps and reasonably suggests there’d be something wrong with the swimming champ were he not hitting the pipe.
This whole Michael Phelps thing is insane. Beyond insane. I know ¦ I know”lucky Michael Phelps. All those gold medals. All those endorsements. All that money. But, really, look at the guy. What kind of life has Michael Phelps lived? In pool, out of pool. In pool, out of pool. In pool, out of pool. In pool, out of pool. In pool, out of pool. As other people his age spring breaked in Cancun and guzzled beers and chased women, he was swimming laps. And more laps. And more laps.
Hence, why is anyone surprised that Phelps took a bong hit? Hell, for his sake I hope he took more than one ¦
