No it was not some one off-day he had, I've had several run-ins with him.
Really? This is sad. I follow the swimming pretty closely, as I swam in high school and I can identify (to some tiny fraction of a degree) with the discipline it demands. Beyond the drunk driving thing, Phelps has seemed to really have his act together and puts a good image forward in the press... which has to be hard to do at his young age.
I have been rooting very hard for him, but this will make it tougher to do so. Damn.
