When the infamous photo of Michael Phelps with his mouth pressed against a bong hit the internet more than three years ago, former Miami Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder was not surprised. Crowder, who is now a mid-day host at 560 WQAM in Miami, told “The Jorge Sedano Show” he saw Phelps smoking weed no more than three weeks prior to the picture coming out. And the 18-time gold medalist was supposedly in good company.
“I was on South Beach probably three weeks before (the infamous photo came out)” Crowder explained. “Everybody knows who Young Jeezy is — he was in (the club). It was crazy because it was Young Jeezy and Michael in the next section over from us at (a nightclub). I look and I see Young Jeezy’s hanging out with a big old white guy and it was Michael Phelps.
“I shook his hand and he was blowing people off because he was drunk too, and I see him hit the blunt later on when Jeezy passed it. No lie! I don’t get star struck or impressed by many people but when I saw Young Jeezy hand Michael Phelps a blunt that was impressive to me,” Crowder said on WQAM.
It then goes on to say how Crowder semi-knew Lochte at Florida and blah, blah, dude was burning all the time. Talented guy, but also a pretty big tool. Let’s take it back to the man himself, Mr. Phelps.
I’ve written before about how this man can really do whatever he wants apart from rape or murder. I’m not one for tattooing an America flag on my dong and then waving it around in the name of American exceptionalism — though that would be super patriotic — but this dude represented that symbolic dominance on a global stage on a sustained scale. Let this man mook!
And now this comes out, and I love this shit. Apart from Thug Motivation 101I haven’t necessarily been a Young Jeezy fanatic, but he’s getting bumped up a few pegs here. Everyone always wondered what Phelps was bumping on those headphones and a few months ago he gave us an idea: some rap and derivative house. Disappointing but whatever. But “Go Getta”? That jam could get you excited for a funeral.
Now just imagine these two dudes getting it done in the club. A 5 foot 9 Snowman and a 6 foot 4 gorky white Olympian. Blunts getting passed around, bottles getting housed and let’s get real, rails getting blown. One of them definitely partook in some sort of sexual act in a back room, perhaps Phelps with a bunch of gold medals hanging off his balls clanking for extra erotic effect.
What I’m really trying to say is that this is probably one of the more interesting, realistic and diverse blunt three ways you could put together.
