In defense of Phelpsi

Poor Michael Phelps. I mean really, is it so bad, at 23, to be doing a bong hit? I think he deserves one or quite a few (maybe 8) - especially after 8 Olympic gold medals. Give the guy a little down time, shouldn't we? The press is so brutal...and hey, it could be a lot worse. How disappointed would we all be to find out he did steroids or somehow wasn't as naturally bad-assed in the pool as we all think he is? Heck, smoking a bowl should decrease his performance, not enhance it, so I'd personally be even MORE impressed with him if I found out he was smoking out during the Olympics. But that's just me.

In other news, it's February and the freak-a-zoids (no offense - I'd be doing it too if I didn't have things such as kids that demand and suck my energy) that tally up hundreds of thousands of yards this month are already out en force. Me? I'm at whatever we did today, and I'm feeling proud thankyouverymuch.
