Wicked Chops reports that Michael Phelps was supposed to play, but his anti-bong-smoking handlers won’t let him get anywhere near Vegas or poker-playing, 420-friendly degens.
Is the fact that he had an invite a surprise?
Hardly. He so stood to be the next Orel Hersheiser.
I’m sure I had posted comments here saying that Phelps would be a lock for an invite back around his time at Caesars’ Palace, especially since it was on NBC (which has the US and World Swimming Championships this year).
