And I'm glad.. because it shows what a flimsy society we are in. Phelps is just going to have to take one for the team.. it was stupid not to know your surroundings, but I'm glad this is out in the open. This man won 14 gold medals and now people are saying, "Well what about the children! Think about the children!" Fuck out my face, those little snot nose bastards were going to end up shooting heroin by sophomore year... how about raise your kids yourselves instead of relying on a 23 year old kid who is possibly the best swimmer ever... A 14 time gold medal winner and the Superbowl MVP are pot smokers... So if you can be the best at your sport, and function like a normal citizen what's the problem? These guys are millionaires and I see mike and mike talking about him losing his endorsements.... why would you even say that? You don't know what contract the fucker signed? How can a substance that is man made such as alcohol and cigarettes be legal and openly accepted, while a plant that was here before we were be called illegal? And the Olympics isn't for another 3 years?!!? You really want this man to live in a hole and only come out when it benefits you and your stupid kids? So he should base his life on a Wheaties box or those one or two commercials he did? This is a 23 year old man and you actually want him to be a drone and respond only when he is asks to do so? he is HUMAN! Is the society really this fickle? You were just sucking his dick about 7 months ago. Now he is no longer your role model?? for what! We as a society need to drop the bullshit and look at things for what they really are... stop basing your life and your kids life on celebrities and let them become their own person with own ideas and opinions. We live in a country full of people who let others do the thinking for them.... critical thinking is something many of us lack.. It's a damn shame. Where the fuck is sir charles when you need him!
