  3. Michael Phelps is dead to me now that I read he's conservative. I'm against anything Republican. I don't care how well he swims.

  9. "that guy is a prick for giving the guy the finger and that bullshit "

    Heavy sigh. If you are that retarded, you simply should not be allowed near a computer.

  11. It's even more amusing that some people don't seem to realize it's fake. Hilarious!

  12. I knew NBC wasn't giving us the full story! I just knew it!

  13. Did anyone hear what Amanda Beard had to say regarding speculation that she and Phelps were dating? BITCHY!

  14. Gentlemen: Do we need to review our lesson from last month on humor and satire?


    Posted by: Mark | Aug 20, 2008 2:03:39 PM

  15. Poor Amanda Beard. It would suck to be a world-class athlete and then get called on the carpet and have to apologize to the press for making a flippant, basically harmless remark about The Golden Boy.

  16. Adam, dearie. I'm still waiting on a link to the article that says Michael Phelps is Republican.

    Oh, you made that up? I see.

    Posted by: crispy | Aug 20, 2008 2:41:09 PM

  17. That is Olympic gold medal level kind of funny.

    Posted by: Will | Aug 20, 2008 2:48:43 PM

  18. It is beyond disrespectful to give the friggin Silver Medal winner the finger like that. Phelps is a complete ass, he should give up his Gold.

    WTF ____ >>> LOL >>>>

    You can tell it was fake ,... couldnt you ?


    Posted by: amanda | Aug 20, 2008 3:35:25 PM

  20. That is most definitely NOT Milorad Cavic!
    This is Milorad Cavic:


    Now that I see that in every photo of him he is either giving the Serb 3-finger salute or wearing a "Kosovo is Serbia" t-shirt, I'm a little less impressed...

    Posted by: Kevinvt | Aug 20, 2008 3:35:38 PM

  21. That's a hoot!

    Posted by: Tweety | Aug 20, 2008 3:39:06 PM

  22. Okay - while I am happy for this guy and realize what he has accomplished is an amazing achievement - I am so sick of hearing about him and the Olympics aren't even over.

    Furthermore, are we supposed to be surprised that the record for most medals are in swimming? There are like, 2 million swimming events at the Olympics - so many it is ridiculous.

    How does a marathon runner who has just circled the city of Beiging compete with that? What are they supposed to do? Run around the city of Beiging nine more times or until they drop dead to rival his medals?

    They are just as great an athlete as he is.

    By the way, Mark Spitz was much cuter, even with the mustache. Actually, he is still cuter than Phelps, even as an old dude.

  23. Phelps is conservative? FUCK HIM!

    Posted by: Bobby | Aug 20, 2008 4:37:21 PM

  24. Wasn't real? That looked like a real middle finger that Phelps gave him to me. Just because you all drool over Phelps, don't deny what we all can plainly see...he's treating Cavic, the Silver Medalist, like a total dick. Kiss my ass Phelps.

    Posted by: Ian | Aug 20, 2008 4:56:36 PM

  25. Even I can tell that this was a creative piece of video editing. you think a tub like that would come in second? geesh IAN.. maybe you should vote Republican!
