Marc will become famous soon enough
Default Phelps caught smoking a bong...

At a USC party last fall. Is this a big deal? He has issued a statement:

"I engaged in behavior which was regrettable and demonstrated bad judgment. I'm 23-years-old and despite the successes I've had in the pool, I acted in a youthful and inappropriate way, not in a manner people have come to expect from me. For this, I am sorry. I promise my fans and the public it will not happen again." Michael Phelps after a picture of him with marijuana surfaced

Personally, I don't think any less of him seeing as how we've all experimented, right? :uhoh: But in the grand scheme of things, he also has a DUI on his record, and this is going to seriously limit his earnings from endorsements. He's shooting himself in the foot for being so careless as to allow pictures to get out...

I'm sorry but Phelps is a dork. I had no idea who this kid was before the Olympics, and after hearing him, talk - do commercials, etc... he seems like the biggest geek.
Everybody gets f'd up... but only a loser with a lot to lose lets friends take pics of you doing it....

To quote Walter from Big Lebowski... "f'n amateurs!"

I doubt any of these guys were his friends. I would bet it was some random guy at the frat party he was attending that took the picture.

How dumb do you have to be to smoke dope in a foreign environment where there are a bunch of random people you don't even know and you are a huge celebrity. At least have the smarts to do only do it around people you trust in a more controlled environment.

Yeah, but really, I think there can be some positives taken from this.

If nothing else, it shows many of those people out there who are extremely sheltered that pot is not some devestating drug that will ruin your life.

The more successful people that are caught smoking pot, the better in my view.

He's young, rich and famous. He hangs out with "Hollywood types." He hit a bong, get over it.

LOL...You're gettin' old like me Steve.

I've mentioned this before and it happened again last week. Two kids at school got busted. Saw the evidence. These fools were smokin' the cheap stuff. With the money these idiots have...



Damn young fools can't even get f-ucked up correctly nowadays.
