Michael Phelps is big-timing his fellow members of Team USA, according to one Olympian.
Ronda Rousey who won bronze in 2008 in Judo, the first woman to win a medal for the U.S. in the event's history, recently commented that at a party for U.S. Olympians, everyone was hanging out together, even the USA Basketball contingent. It was all snuggles and fuzzies, apparently, except for one dude.
Via Yahoo Sports:
Rousey said while at a party for all American Olympians, the athletes happily mingled together. NBA players hung with the rest of the group, but Phelps had his own area that was just for his group.
"These NBA players are a bigger deal than this guy, and theyre hanging out with us. Were teammates. Were not a bunch of groupies. Come hang out with us," Rousey said.
See, and it was such a nice story, too, all these athletes competing in an amateur competition. Except for the whole, you know, wanting to get paid thing. Phelps obviously is the biggest name outside of USA Basketball returning for the games this time around, the most recognizable figure, the Wheaties Subway guy. Fourteen golds will do that.
But I mean, if we're looking at people you don't want to make angry? I'm going to nominate Rousey. I mean...
