Michael Phelps: Countdown to Conspiracy

by

Michael Phelps has inadvertently set another record in Beijing, this time for the fastest conspiracy theory to emerge after a controversial finish. Was Cavic robbed by FINA and the official timekeeper, Omega? Check out www.001ofasecond.com, which raises a good question by way of the weirdest analogy I’ve heard in a long time:

How is it that the official timekeeper of the event is the same company that sponsors Phelps since 2004? Isn’t there a clear conflict of interest here? That’s like having sex with your own sister and then bragging around that you get laid a lot.

For the record, I was cheering against Phelps, but it looked to me like he won.
