Micheal Phelps...Olympic Hero or Dopehead?

Unless you have been living under a rock, you have probably heard that Micheal Phelps, winner of 8 gold medals in the 2008 Olympics, was caught on camera smoking from a big ol' bong recently.
Those who are uninitiated in the "art" of pot smoking will not recognize or even be aware of what he is doing, but for some of us, it brings back OLD memories.
He is VERY familiar with what he is doing, which of course says, this is not the first time.
He has apologized (as it seems EVERYONE can do nowadays) and hopes to "move on".
Once again, another great example for the kiddies huh?
I don't want to hear lame excuses for him too. I read 200 of them on various sports websites and they are all pathetic. Either you approve of him smoking pot or you don't.
Sad statement, but welcome to the New America!

I like it. Who cares if he smokes pot? He won 8 gold medals and is a stoner. Why does anyone care about this? To each his own. He's obviously still motivated enough to win and train like a maniac. I think people worry about it because it shows that he isn't a loser sitting on his couch all day playing video games. That even as a pot smoker, he can function and achieve great things. Would it be OK if he was drinking beer?
