Poker Player Michael Phelps Has Most All-Time Gold Medals for a Poker Player
With his 8th gold medal in the Beijing Olympics and 984sidjf47th [gold] overall, Phelps may have put to rest the argument, "is poker a sport?" Even though the medals weren't exactly for poker and stuff.
Anyway, according to hottie swimmer Amanda Beard, who has become suddenly less hot after revealing that she has hairy legs to that weasel Billy Bush (the guy Jeremy Piven once pwned here...seriously Bush ruins everything), that Michael Phelps "literally spends 10 hours a day playing online poker."
Watch the video here.
When that weasel Billy Bush later asked Phelps if he's raking pots from his Olympic teammates while in Beijing, a country that btw doesn't allow such nefarious behavior, the champ said, "Oh, nooo, we haven’t played any poker yet...We played some in Stanford and I won 40 bucks — a 20 dollar buy in and I won 40 bucks — but you don’t wanna lose any friends over this."
He also said they played a lot of Spades, a popular card game amongst 10th graders.

UPDATE: So Phelps really is into poker. In this interview in the Baltimore Sun he says, "I think it would be cool to play in the World Series of Poker...My game is a little off right now, so I'll have to start improving it a little bit. But I think that would be cool, and it would be cool to meet some of those poker guys."
