It makes me a little irked that this Phelps guy is getting so much fucking attention for hitting a bong. You know, I don’t follow sports and even tend to ignore all athletic competition and it’s champions, but I do know who he is cause he is kinda cute and all. Not to mention I’m at a household that has CNN on all day. But my first and foremost thought was, if this guy is some kind of super-swimmer-athlete, and is the BEST in his field, and STILL can get high sometimes on his own time, then shouldn’t we actually be praising him for being such a serious athlete that also knows how to have a good time and is able to manage both.
And now, THIS,
We’ve now learned that since investigators began trying to build a case, they’ve made eight arrests: seven for drug possession and one for distribution. These are arrests that resulted as the sheriff’s department served search warrants. We’ve also learned that the department has located and confiscated that bong. Sources say the owner of the bong was trying to sell it on eBay for as much as $100,000. The owner, who wasn’t even at the party, is one of the eight now charged. Phelps is not one of those charged at this point, but the sheriff’s department has strong evidence that matches the photo to the house on Blossom Street.
