The other big story of Sunday, besides the Super Bowl, was the British tabloid News of the World running a photo of Olympic hero Michael Phelps hitting a bong. The paper also gave us a classic quote from a source that was at the party Phelps was attending: "You could tell Michael had smoked before. He grabbed the bong and a lighter and knew exactly what to do. He looked just as natural with a bong in his hands as he does swimming in the pool. He was the gold medal winner of bong hits."

Of course, in our industry, you know you can bet on anything. And the bookmaker BetUS might be stepping up to the plate.

From Gambling911:


The online gambling website BetUS.com was rumored to be preparing to post odds on Michael Phelps weed smoking fiasco and what might transpire. Because of Super Bowl Sunday, BetUS oddsmakers are a little bit - well - in the weeds themselves this day...so we will have to wait on this particular bet offering.
There hasn't been any word on how this incident will affect Phelps' second-life as a poker pro, but Buzzy has a feeling the poker world will turn a blind (or bloodshot) eye.
