Up in Smoke

Phelps is likely the only athlete who can smoke week and keep his sponsorships. Phelps offered a public apology for his "regrettable and demonstrated bad judgment" after pictures of the star were published in a British tabloid that captured Phelps hitting the bong. Both Speedo and Swiss watch maker Omega have backed the superstar. Where was this compassion when Canadian Snowboarder Ross Regabliati was stripped of his gold medal for smoking pot? Lucky for Phelps that this picture was 3 months after the Beijing Games.
