    Default Next up for Michael Phelps? Play in the WSOP

    The Baltimore Sun is reporting that now that Michael Phelps has plenty of time, money and fame, he thinks he would like to play in the WSOP.

    "I think it would be cool to play in the World Series of Poker," Phelps said. "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."

    Cards actually played a small role in the amazing gold medal run. Phelps didn't do much during his down time in between races -- movies mostly -- but he did learn to play Spades and team up with Ryan Lochte for a few afternoon victories that took his mind off swimming.

    And if he plays, expect to see him on the WSOP coverage next year on ESPN.

    I would love to see him play in a big event but I have a feeling it won't happen for the next 6-months or so, let him get his life back after all the hoopla.

    Phelps made the final table of a $1570 buy-in tournament at Caesar's Palace and is letting it be known that he's planning on playing in the WSOP next year. Buzzy hopes he can dig up the $10,000 buy-in.
