I'll take Phelps over "Sparkly grills-one night stand-I'm to sexy for the pool" Lochte anyday. Great swimmer, but otherwise he does nada for me.
"Once you've skated together long enough, and you're really good friends, you can close your eyes, put your hand out and she's right there." Joe Dolkiewicz, 2011 US Novice Pairs Bronze Medalist
If I were XX years younger I would definitely prefer Phelps over Lochte. He just seems to have been able to remain more down to earth and sounds so sweet during every interview I've seen so far. Kudos to him.
"Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned / Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned."
I'm shallow. Give me Lochte any day. I don't need him to talk. His mouth can do other things
I don't think "sweet" or "down-to-earth" is a term that even Phelps would use to describe himself.
Well tomorrow is the big one as far as I am concerned - women's 800m with Rebecca Adlington - I am going to be oh so nervous for her. This is the one gold I really want someone to win. Sleep well Becky and I'll be on my sofa 7:45pm tomorrow evening to cheer you on
I lived in Ypsilanti for 5 years and ran into a lot of people who either knew Phelps or participated in events with him (all my friends are musicians), and not a single person had anything good to say about him
Ryan said in an interview that in Beijing he had a girlfriend also on the US swim team and that relationship fell apart during/after the Olympics so he didn't get Olympic village tail. He says he is determined to rectify the situation in London. Anyone know who this girlfriend was?
Also I thought it was well known Michael Phelps had a one-night stand with Stephanie Rice during Beijing since there were photos of them that were leaked.
This has got to be such a disappointing Olympics for Lochte. I'm sure he'll put on a brave face in front of the camera, but he didn't live up to all the pre-hype; He definitely didn't get out of Phelps' shadow.
I'd rather have me some hoogie or Popov too. neither lochte nor phelps does it for me, even if i avoided their faces and just looked at the body...
i guess the boys are going to be having some fun in the next week...a different kind of olympic sport. i wonder who the winner will be there?
No one should have to swim 2 finals 30 minutes apart. That's crazy.
Phelps would probably have a few more medals if he could have ever fit the backstroke events into his program in Athens, Beijing and here. He actually swam the 200back for Athens at trials and made the team, but then dropped it due to the IM timing.

Oh okay. I just thought that two of his favorite events happened to be scheduled so soon together.
