Hey, I don't know about you, but I credit Michael Phelps with breathing more life into the sport of swimming than, well, just about anybody else. Watching him win all those gold medals was thrilling -- especially for us moms of kids who are a little different from the cookie cutter, yuppie, perfect demographic variety.
I was irked to death when, last week, Phelps was getting dinged in the press for smoking pot -- and, as a result, lost a lucrative endorsement contract with Kellogg. Of course, I would bet Kellogg has featured more than a few steroid-lubricated baseball stars on their boxes. Okay, I'm bitter, but it looks like some other folks have a few things to say about the Phelps situation. Hey, Kellogg execs: How about you try swimming five miles a day for months on end -- without a little "relief."
