It’s every one’s dream. To retire young and travel the world. And if you’re Michael Phelps, and that means partying it up, city jumping, and basically doing whatever the f**k you want, then call me jealous.
Phelps will more than likely retire after the 2012 Olympics in London. And at 27 years old, Phelps has the chance live every spoiled Generation Y dude’s dream out there. To have money, Olympic fame, and just about anything else you want right at your fingertips is something movies are made of.
Now, usually these types of movies end with the star athlete dying at a young age of a drug overdose. And not that I am trying to predict Phelps’ future, but if 10 years from now he has his own True Hollywood Story: Life Of An Olympic Junkie, it wouldn’t surprise me.
We’ve all seen the pictures. Dude likes to party, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Anyone that says otherwise is just jealous that they can’t swim 10 miles stoned. But when you retire before 30, it gives you a lot of free time to get bored (insert Heroin).
Hopefully I am wrong. Hopefully once the Olympics end, Phelps will find inner peace and be able to travel the world with loved ones, spreading joy to homeless orphans in Africa. I just don’t see it.
