”We have decided to send Michael a clear message, since he has disappointed so many people, and especially the hundreds of thousands of children who have signed up to the federation, who see him as a role model or a hero…” – USA Swimming
I keep hearing this on the news before or after Phelps apologizes for smoking marijuana. I have yet to see any children who are disappointed. Do children even know about this? I also doubt that hundreds of thousands of children care about Olympic Swimming. I would love to see how many children actually know who he is compared to say…Harry Potter. Do children get upset when their role models use a bong? How do they even know what that is? I mean I guess they know now because you keep telling them how disappointed they are.
