Yeah, a well-known poster here is part of a highly publicized incident involving one of the most famous athletes in the world, can't understand why anyone would care either.

I think he is referring to the police and media, not 2p2'rs. Could be wrong though.

Was it the whole Who would be stupid enough to sell a bong for 100 gr/No bong is worth 100 gr bit? He basically did his stoner imitation of a couple of guys having a conversation scheming to sell the bong, and then quipped that they could get more for it if they got Mark Spitz to take a rip from it. Something like that. Basically his whole point was that there's no way something like that is worth 100k.

Re: Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong - arrests ensue

Does this kinda thing actually happen semi-regularly in the South or is this just special for the Phelps case? I can't imagine a "raid" happening due to "reports of frequent marijuana smoking" in any northern state. This is ridiculous. It sounds like the response to finding a large-scale coke dealer or something.

Re: Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong - arrests ensue

i'd be pretty pissed at Jim Rome if I were you. Basically Rome was claiming you guys were drug dealers, bookies, and trust fund kids. I listen to Rome daily, and he mentioned the Phelps incident like 3 days in a row and then mumbled something about how (referring to himself) he plays poker. weird.

Rome: "Phelps was caught in a pic smoking out of bong."

pause...

Rome: "What? They were playing 4k beer pong games? Where the hell do college kids get money like that to gamble with?"

pause....

Rome: "They're obviously drug dealers, bookies, or trust fund kids. Wow. Phelps is now hanging out with drug dealers and bookies. It just keep getting worse for Phelps. Seriously, who has money like that in college to bet 4k on a beer pong game? Drug dealers and bookies, that's who."

Re: Picture circulating of Michael Phelps smoking a bong - arrests ensue

I see in the news that they confiscated pot, a camera, and computer equipment. I suppose it's not a far leap that they are looking for more photos of the night in question. They are also going to probably look for emails, IM conversations, etc., for anything at all illegal.

Having been involved in something similar when I was in college, the police are really looking to trump up bigger charges out of all this. Mainly, were there minors involved that were supplied drugs and alcohol (one of the arrestees was 17. . . .) Was anyone on the premises selling? Who furnished the drugs and alcohol? Etc. etc. etc.

I'm a bit stunned that there was any weed at the place when the cops showed up. . . the raids were pretty easy to see coming. Hopefully everyone is smart enough to not make any statements to the cops without a lawyer present. Given the age of some of those arrested, I doubt that's the case.

As to the "why are the authorities doing this" question, that one is easy. It's the same reason underground poker games get raided. 99% of the time, this s**t gets ignored. . . until somebody rubs it in the face of authorities, complains to the cops, etc. Once that pic came out, the local authorities almost had to investigate. Half of them probably see this as just as big a waste of time as any of us do.

Prohibition laws are one of the great evils in our society. Good luck.

So who sold the picture? How much did News of the World or whatever pay for it?

I never got invited. You don't go to the party just to say, I am going to go. Especially because of who I am.

They voted me one of the top five pot smokers in all time. Some of them are dead. But they invited the other ones to go to the patry, but not me.

Yes, I am a bit upset about it.

Yeah, last month he compared something to winning "the bracelet" by calling a huge bluff on the river. He's probably gone to some of the big SoCal games that run, but you figure the guy's glued to ESPN 10+ hours a day, so he'd at least have the lingo down.
