What You Missed While You were Watching the Super Bowl
Now, if you were watching the Super Bowl last night, which I’m sure you were, you probably missed the following events:
1. Michael Phelps Apologizes for Marijuana Pipe in his Mouth
A British tabloid showed a picture of Phelps inhaling from a marijuana pipe Saturday, although it did not say specifically that he was smoking marijuana, but instead stated that the pipe was generally used for that purpose.
One anonymous person who attended that party said that Phelps was “out of control from the moment he got there.” That’s not exactly incriminating evidence that he was smoking pot, but almost.
Michael Phelps, the guy who has a record eight gold medals from one year, didn’t come out and say that he was smoking marijuana either. Instead, he said:”I engaged in behavior which was regrettable and demonstrated bad judgment. I’m 23 years old and despite the successes I’ve had in the pool, I acted in a youthful and inappropriate way, not in a manner people have come to expect from me. For this, I am sorry. I promise my fans and the public it will not happen again.” However, there is no evidence that Phelps actually said this, because his agent released the quote, but let’s assume that he did.
There will not be any repercussions against Phelps, except maybe that his sponsors will stop paying him. However, this is just more proof that athletes are invincible. I don’t know if any of you realize this, but marijuana is illegal! He should be arrested.
Anyway, there were other things that happened during the Super Bowl, like:
2. Nadal beats Federer to Win Australian Open
Nadal needed 4 hours, and 23 minutes to do it, but he eventually beat Roger Federer in the Australian Open final to keep Pete Sampras’ singles Grand Slam record safe.
Federer couldn’t help but cry during the presentation, sobbing out, “Maybe I’ll try later. God, it’s killing me.”
He later returned to the podium to congratulate Nadal, saying, “You deserved it. You played a fantastic final.”
After Nadal received his trophy, he put his arm around Federer and said, “Roger, sorry for today. I really know how you feel right now. Remember, you’re a great champion, you’re one of the best in history.”
The last main thing that happened during the Super Bowl, other than the Super Bowl, is:
3. Many Games that had Little to do with the Respective League’s Finals were Played
In college basketball, Duke, Illinois, and Villanova all won, as the rankings said they should. However, number 9 Michigan State got upset by unranked Penn State.
In the NBA, the three beasts of the East, Orlando, Boston, and Cleveland all won, while a low profile game (Kings vs. Thunder) was won by a low profile team (Sacramento Kings).
And, in the NHL, the Capitals, the Predators, and the Bruins all won.
That’s all I have for you.
