What Was He Thinking....

What was he thinking?
That's the question being asked on Fox News after Michael Phelps' apology for being caught out smokin' weed.

Here's what I think about that question...
Who cares?
I mean, who really cares?

It was a private party and some smart-ass with a camera took a candid photo and gave/sold it to the press. Phelps is entitled to his privacy, in my opinion. He is a 23 year old guy, who has trained his butt off for every hour of every day over the last ka-zillion years.

Then, he won enough Olympic gold to make everyone in the Universe happy, and now he's on some down time. It's not something that I would choose to do at a party, but if he chooses to, then that's his business, as an adult making his own decisions. He'll have to live with the fallout. Leave the guy alone, I say!

What was he thinking?
Maybe, just maybe he was thinking, " Whew! Now I can kick back, hang with my buddies and relax, finally!"
He's entitled.
In spades.

I agree, Brenda -- back off him!

I don't really understand your quote -- women are and have been for quite some time (even Art Linkletter's time) obstetricians, no?

on another note -- tick tock, tick tock!

I agree. He's only 23 years old, give him a break!

sandrac:

I agree -- as "scandals" go, this one is pretty feeble.

I say legalize it! There are much worse things and in my opinion alcohol is a much more dangerous drug.

Karen,
Me, too! For goodness' sake, news must be hard to find these days if this is the headliner!

Annie, Sandra and Girasole...all words of wisdom, and I agree totally!
Thanks for the validation!
