      He must have picked up the runner-up bug from Miss Prejean.

      You go Michael. This hypocritical society we live in makes me sick many a day but hey, you have to take the bad with the good. We all have our off days and you just had one of yours.

      Welcome back Mike. It is time to start thinking a Playgirl spread. Can’t wait to see it.

      Before any Playgirl spread he should pass by the dentist and do something with his jack-o-lantern front teeth…

      First NOM, now Phelps. Everything Prejean touches turns to shit. Well, NOM already was I guess…

      Okay, I get the gratuitous cheesecake factor, but otherwise this is a relevant story for what reason?

      I thought HUAC got shut down over 50 years ago.

      Why does Perez Hilton get to be a judge at these things? If he hadn’t opened his mouth and said those things or maybe got a different question. He would have won. Maybe he should f*** Donald Trump

      Funny, I saw an MSNBC newscast which stated Phelps won this swim meet and broke a meet record. Perhaps the report was regarding another first swim return in North Carolina, or perhaps another event? Maybe it’s just a loss for him in this swimming event and her perhaps won another event not shown here, but reported on MSNBC?

      Would someone please clarify?

      Indeed, it’s not a big deal. But, the new Queerty is hell-bent on being the Negative Nancy of the LGBT Internet. Have you notice how the latest editor continually focuses on the negative in everything? Well, not everything. Apparently if you are buff model, you can do no wrong.

      @alex: I thought they were being pretty generous letting people comment on the obvious photoshopped photos featured on that ‘twink in his waning days’ featured on the site right now.

      Glad to see that the inner loser is coming through. He’s a jerk.

      I used to think Michael Phelps was hot. Then I heard he was dating Carrie Prejean and, all of a sudden, I noticed his face. Suddenly, he’s not so hot anymore. And he lost a race. Maybe Li’l Miss Cunt-ifornia and all her bad jujo is stealing Michael Phelps’s mojo.

      This is stupid. He’s not going to, nor did he before, win every race he swims in. This kind of negative publicity just because he’s human and maybe, decided he didn’t want to train himself to death, is what is likely putting him off to competing in another olympics. You nay-sayers should be ashamed of yourselves.

      Also, lets not assume he shares Prejean’s ideals just because he hooked up with the loser. Even he’s smart enough to deny any association with her.

      @DLPCA: It appears this is a medal ceremony only for the 100 backstroke event (which he lost because his backstroke is not up to par with his other strokes and Aaron Piersol has been the best in the world at this backstroke distance for years), not for the overall meet standings. He most likely won every other event he swam (and that was likely a lot) and accumulated enough points to be the overall meet winner and set whatever new record he set. I’m glad he lost to Piersol, though, who frankly is way cuter.

      @sal(the original):

      …unlike some websites and their readers who are falsely blaming Phelps for homophobic comments which he had nothing to do with.
