If he was bored out of his mind he would have returned to swimming by now.

What are you talking about? He does that every year. His best friend and best man Jeff Gross is a professional poker player. He knows most of those people including the guy in the picture, Phil Hellmuth. The article made it sound like it was a fan selfie. These men are friends.
