Olympics Crack UPDATE: When Michael Phelps Says He Owns The Pool...

So Michael Phelps is joining his coach in buying the aquatic center in Baltimore where he first began to train.  It's a shocking investment for a 23-year-old, that he'll be purchasing pool tile instead of blowing his endorsement money on hookers, beer, and a pony like 99.99% of his age group would.

Imagine the athletes from some of these POS nations who have the choice of training in, like, extra- large puddles or defecting in all but name to other countries in order to find decent facilities-- and here's Phelps with his own personal aquatic complex. "OK, everybody out of the pool.  Owner's Swim."

Also, one of the horses of the bronze-winning Norwegian equestrian team, Camiro, has tested positive for "illegal substances."  That's what happens when your warmbloods get in with a rough crowd.  Know your horse's friends, Olympians!  Carmiro, you and He let me know if you'd like Reddi-Whip or Cool Whip with your pumpkin.

Wow, Phelps is buying Meadowbrook. Interesting. Also interesting that the other big poll in the area, Padonia, is closing. I guess they will have to expand to make up for that. A non-denominational church is buying it...

Well perhaps Phelps is planning on having a pool party with hookers, beer, and pony rides at Meadowbrook. At least that's what I would do if I owned an aquatic center.
