At the same South Carolina house party where he was snapped sucking on a bong, the Olympics hero lost a pile of money betting in a high-stakes session of the drinking game beer pong, in which players wing pingpong balls into plastic cups. “I saw Phelps pull out a roll, a bank-wrapped $2,000. He said, ‘I’ll match the $2,000,’ ” onlooker Michael Whitworth told the State newspaper. “Good ol’ Phelpsie lost it, too.”
Phelps, come on over here. Let’s talk. You’re a degen. Embrace it. Instead of holding back and just being a poor man’s Gavin Smith, come on over to the dark side and embrace being the Michael Phelps we all know you want to be. Leave the whole “swimming” thing to Aquaman. He’s got it covered. We know you have it in you, Phelpsie. And if you don’t do it for yourself, then do it for the kids. Be a role model. Atta boy.
