Michael, Michael, Michael: Phelps Phandom Continues to Spread

Is there a person in the country who doesn't know about Michael Phelps and his awesome achievement yet? Probably not. Some aren't as enthusiastic about the geeky 23-year-old and his misguided fashion sense, but that's just part of being in the spotlight. I'm sure there will be more people picking on his dorky behavior. And then there are others who think he can do no wrong (people other than me... of course). In the great tradition of the Chuck Norris facts (a site dedicated to the man, myth and legend) comes Michael Phelps facts (these people have way too much time on their hands... and clearly so do I since I've been reading their site). My favorite "fact" of the moment is: "Ancient Greeks used to sacrifice 100 cows to Poseidon who would then turn around and sacrifice them to Michael Phelps." Impressive. I'm wasting way too much time laughing at these.

Not as much time as I spent looking for the new issue of Sports Illustrated which I was led to believe would be available today. Apparently not at the six newsstands that I've been to in Manhattan though. Don't they understand how I need to have this now? Phelps is wearing all his medals proudly around his neck (Mindy says it looks like a halter top) but it is a "tribute" to the Spitz cover, except this one has more medals... and less mustache. Anyway, I'm back on my quest for more Phelps Phun (yeah, I've officially cracked.) If you find anything fun, send it on over to twopangel[at] Since he's not on TV right now, I've got to do something with my time... aside from watching 12 hours of Olympics a day.
