Same wannabes who wanted to Forgive Phelps His Trespasses when he was busted near here for Driving Under the Influence. In his Caddy Escalade. With the Spinning Rims. The Olympic God failed the Field Sobriety Test on that one. He got 18 months' probation and had to do some community service janx.
And said he'd learned his lesson. Went on to garner somewhere in the neighborhood of $100 million in endorsements. That's up there in the Unbelievable range. Add the Olympic Bling, and we're talkin' Stratospheric Stardom.
Does he have an obligation to his fans? Especially to all the kids out there who want to grow up to be like Michael Phelps?
Mrs. Scribe thinks so. Remember, Mike: There's no hope in dope!
