COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP)—Another award for Michael Phelps: The record-setting swimmer was chosen the U.S. Olympic Committee’s sportsman of the year on Thursday.

All-around gymnastics champion Nastia Liukin and swimmer Natalie Coughlin, who won six medals in Beijing, tied in voting for sportswoman of the year.

Erin Popovich was selected paralympian of the year and the U.S. men’s volleyball team, which won a gold medal in the aftermath of the attack and killing of coach Hugh McCutcheon’s father-in-law, was team of the year.

He’s got to upgrade his bonging technique.

There is no way he’d get a gold medal doing it the way he was doing it. It looked like he was sucking on a lemon.

My brother would have gotten the gold medal!

It’s either a fake pic, or the Olympics are fixed. No way a pot smoker could win 8 gold medals.

“U.S. Olympic Committee’s sportsman of the year on Thursday.”

Will he be presented with a gold plated bong?

Or maybe pot smoking isn’t as bad as people would lead you to believe....

Or any number of things really that don’t demean his accomplishment.

Either that, or you are really naive for thinking that occasional use of marijuana would preclude a talented athlete from performing record feats.

This will do wonders for his future product endorsements. I bet his management company is going berserk. Bye, bye money.

Nah, can’t be. He’s got not tits, and can apparently dedicate himself to his chosen sport. Plus, no axe murdering, he’s clearly able to get off of his couch, and hasn’t fallen in with wayward jazz musicians.
