USA Today recently broke the following news:
As spring rounded into the biggest summer of his 19-year-old life,
Michael Phelps took a photo with his cell phone of what he really wants. That way he could see it at the touch of a keypad. He could show it around, hear the oohs and aahs. An Olympic gold medal? No. Seven Olympic gold medals? Guess again.
"It’s a 1-month-old English bulldog," he says after pulling up the
photo with the grinning expectancy of a child in a toy store aisle. "I
love bulldogs. It’s a big dog, but it’s a little dog, too. You know
what I mean?"
Hell yes! I knew this guy was all class. Phelps, My bully, Howie, sends a shout out to you and yours. Keep kicking ass in China!
