Michael Phelps fifteen minutes of fame are running out

King Ing April 9, 2009 5


Remember when Michael Phelps used to be America’s golden boy. But winning 8 gold medals in Beijing became nothing after 1 bong hit. And it looks like Phelps isn’t doing anything to try and restore his image by continuously partying. Usually found at any club in Vegas, it seems he has moved the venue to “the city that never sleeps.”

Michael “was out in full force Tuesday night at NYC hot spot Marquee.

“Michael was definitely having a good time,” an eyewitness tells us. “He was drinking straight from a bottle of Grey Goose, and when the deejay started playing M.I.A.’s ‘Paper Planes,’ he got up, started dancing like a loon and kept on yelling, ‘Shots!'”

In addition, the athlete skeeved out onlookers when he persisted in PDA-ing with his girlfriend, cocktail waitress Caroline (Caz) Pal.

There is really nothing wrong with that, but here is my favorite part of the whole night.

“But the night wasn’t all fun and games for Phelps. During the course of the evening, the champ recognized UConn basketball player Hasheem Thabeet and went over to introduce himself.

“Hasheem had absolutely no clue who Michael was, and [Phelps] walked away looking a little embarrassed,” says the onlooker”

You just can’t walk up to Hasheem the Dream and act like you are somebody. You are looking at a top 3 pick in next years draft! And yes, I am going out on a limb and saying he is declaring. Marquee is a far way from Uconn’s campus!

    Funny that a pot-smoker and a partyholic is able to sweep the gold medals from “the best of the best” who have been clean for years. What does that say about getting high and drunk??
