"Call Me Lochte" Ryan Lochte-Michael Phelps Parody [VIDEO]

Ryan Lochte beat Michael Phelps in the 400-Meter Individual Medley and surprised most of the U.S. since casual swimming fans didn’t know how great Lochte has become.

Lochte and Phelps only took the silver medal this afternoon in the 400-Meter Freestyle Relay, so I hope this funny parody video of Carley Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” cheers you up.

“Call Me Lochte” is an entertaining parody and I hope you enjoy it.

U.S. Gymnast Shawn Johnson Retires

Shawn Johnson, 20, suffered a knee injury and decided to retire from professional gymnastics competition. After winning multiple medals at the 2008 Olympics, she left the door open to a 2012 return, but now that door has been shut.

The former gold medal winner took two years off after the 2008 Olympics and coming back has proven to be a challenge. She didn’t know if she wanted to return until she had a ski accident. Her left knee was severely damaged. She tore her ACL, MCL, meniscus, and her hamstring on that leg. She had repeated setbacks during her comeback and she feared the long-term effects of her knee injury.

Johnson will always be the country’s darling like Mary Lou Retton was a generation ago. She has a few projects coming out soon and we hit you up with a few videos of her highlights.

Johnson wants to have child and not feel the effects of her knee injury when she is 30. She lists this one of the main reasons that she has to call it quits.

Johnson propelled herself into the limelight after the 2008 Olympics. Only three other athletes left Beijing with more medals (Michael Phelps, Natalie Coughlin, Nastia Liukin). During her time away from the sport, she won “Dancing with the Stars” and did some other promotional work.¬†She had an issue with a stalker during her time on the show. She came out of the situation unharmed.

Johnson has an autobiography coming out on June 4th called ‘Winning balance’. She plans to go to college in the fall of 2013, but she hasn’t settled on a school.

I can’t confirm this, but I’m sure that you will see her during NBC’s broadcast of the 2012 Olympics in London, England.

Here are a couple of videos of Shawn Johnson during her career as a gymnast and the season in which she won ‘Dancing with the Stars’ and an interview with Mo Rocca.

Michael Phelps Is A Dolphin

I am very excited to witness history tonight, but someone should check Michael Phelps for a blow-hole and/or gills. I know the kid looks like the bastard son of Eli Manning and Jim from “The Office,” but he is a beast. What he did in these Olympics is just staggering. The last time an American Olympian garnered this kind of buzz was Michael Johnson back in ’96 or maybe the Dan vs. Dave ad campaign that kind of hit the fan.

Phelps got his 8th gold medal at the Beijing Olympics tonight and he needed his fellow team members to help him. Not only did he have 8 gold medals, he broke 7 world records in the process. He will be the next Lance Armstrong, meaning that he will be America’s Superhero. He will have to decide what cause he will be backing and what color bracelet he will choose to sell.

The final total for Michael Phelps in his Olympic career is 16 total medals, 14 of them being gold. He is still a young man, so the 2012 Olympics could be in his future. I feel like he should always wear American flag clothing from this point on. Look for him to start dating a famous actress within the next calendar year.
