Phelps Arrested For DUI, NFL Outrage With Abdullah Penalty, Kobe Feels Good


Michael PhelpsOlympian swimming superstar Michael Phelps was arrested for a DUI.   Phelps said he was sorry for the DUI, but many fans who look up to him as a role model are disappointed in his irresponsible and reckless behavior.  


And in the NFL, as mentioned yesterday, there is controversy around the flag thrown against the Kansas City Chiefs Husain Abdullah for praying in Monday Night’s game.   It has been thought that anything that doesn’t give your team an advantage should not be penalized in the NFL, but the NFL is trying to be extra strict right now, so the flag was thrown.  Fine, except it sparked another outrage against the NFL about bad management and how this is yet another example after the Ray Rice fiasco that the administration doesn’t know what it’s doing.  


Kobe BryantAnd in the NBA, Kobe Bryant is looking forward to his return. After attending his first practice yesterday, Kobe said he felt like himself.  Kobe’s career is in a funny place. The Lakers are in rebuilding mode, and definitely don’t have the pieces to contend for a title, let alone make the playoffs.  He can’t play for another team because he has a huge contract that keeps him in LA. Plus, leaving would be a bad mark on his legacy.  So, he will essentially be a mentor, helping the Lakers strive to nab the #8 seed in the playoffs.  Hopefully he at least stays healthy so we get to watch him.

    This is his second DUI in 10 years. Driving while impaired is an extremely dangerous choice. Phelps will no doubt lose millions in sponsorships after this latest hiccup.

    Phelps post-retirement is not the Phelps I remember!
