Michael Phelps and Phil Ivey Partying in Las Vegas Over New Year’s


All right. Ok. Now we get it. Poker player/swimmer Michael Phelps probably wasn’t a stud growing up. As in, if it wasn’t for that swimming hobby of his, he might not of been the coolest guy. No shame in that, but it is what it is.

So he’s really relishing being cool right now. And he should. Because with 8 gold medals on his belt after the 2008 Summer Olympics, Phelps is doing one of the best, “Yeah I have 8 gold medals and $100 mil coming my way the next few years, so suck my d— world! Yo DJ, pump A Milli again so I can grind on my hot Asian girlfriend…” that we’ve ever seen.

Over New Year’s, Phelps was seen (yet again) in Vegas partying this time with Phil Ivey. Phelps already seemed to have some wicked poker chops before hanging with Ivey et. al., so if he’s getting any tips (likely at a ridiculous hourly rate), watch out 2009 WSOP (if he plays, as predicted upon here).

    Bet the house on Phelps not playing at the WSOP in 2009. The US Swimming Championships are July 7-11, with the World Championships airing late July-early August (both on NBC). The chances of him playing at the NBC Heads-Up tournament in early March are much greater, he could start training afterwards and make NBC happy.
