Alright guys, HUGE news out of Rio yesterday, and that’s that Maryland’s own Michael Phelps, the most decorated Olympian in history, pees in the pool that he swims in.
Said Phelps- “I think everybody pees in the pool. I think it’s kind of a normal thing to do for swimmers. When we’re in the pool for two hours, we don’t really get out to pee, we just go whenever we are on the wall. Chlorine kills it, so it’s not bad.”
Everybody thinks that everybody pees in the pool. But I can honestly say that I don’t pee in the pool. I pee in the ocean, because I’m not some type of maniac. Everybody pees in the ocean. I’ve seen people poop in buckets on the beach and throw it into the ocean (OCMD, classy as classy gets). Safe to say I didn’t get back in the water at that point, but that’s neither here nor there. The point is, not everybody pees in pools despite popular belief.
Am I some sort of innovator for not peeing in pools? That’s tough to say. Only time will tell. I like to think so. But if Phelps is peeing in pools, and he’s the greatest swimmer of all time, should I be doing it? The answer seems like a clear yes. Time to find a pool and take a long pee in it for all the times I’ve missed out on doing it. #commitment
