Michael Phelps

February 11, 2009

So as most of you probably know, the world famous Olympic champion Michael Phelps was caught in a photo on pot.

The photo was taken mid-atunm last year (2008 ) here at University of South Carolina. The county sheriff made a public statement and said he would press charges on Phelps if possible.

he wasn’t kidding, either. The sheriff did some digging and has made 8 arrests. Everyone arrested was in the room when the photo of Phelps using a bong was taken, except for Phelps.

Phelps has made a public apology for his behaviour, and he’s in the photo. ther Sheriff just needs to work a few more things before Phelps is arrested.

Kellogg cereal has dropped their partnership with Phelps and he’s been suspended from the Olympics.

Now here’s what I think. Phelps is a great guy. He is a role model for so many children, young and teens. He showed negative for drug tests during the Olympic games, and this photo was taken after the Olympics. That leads me to believe that Phelps won the Olympic games, had a few months off of training and the media, and in all the relaxing he just kinda screwed up. STILL, that is NO excuse for his behaviour. He’s just let down millions of families and fans who supported him all the way. Still: If my theory is correct, I believe he should be given a second chance.

So he’s lost his partnership with Kellogg, he’s been suspended from the Olympics, and he will most likely pay jailtime.

The most common, looked up to, celebrated athlete on the planet just flushed his courier down the toilet. Sad, isn’t it?
