I have been avoiding this story for a while now but the juxtaposition of two American Olympians both in their late 20's surrounded by girls sporting bottle-blonde hair and day-glo bikinis was way to surreal to pass up.
The headline reads: "Ryan Lochte vs. Michael Phelps: How Do These Olympians' Vegas Parties Compare?
Unlike Lochte, Phelps did not have a swimming competition with Prince Harry. And neither medalist was involved in a nude photo scandal with a certain redheaded royal. Instead, Phelps celebrated his retirement from competitive swimming with friends and Olympic gold medalist Allison Schmitt and poker star Phil Hellmuth on Saturday night at Surrender, raging alongside DJ Afrojack. Phelps took the mic and exclaimed, "This is my first night of retirement at Surrender!" He then threw back a shot of chilled Grey Goose vodka.
From their gold medal performances to making plastic spectacles of themselves. Why can't these weenies be as well mannered and as classy as Ian Thorpe, Missy Franklin or Natalie Coughlin?
