Absolutely LOVE the opening screen here before I even hit play. Lochte couldn’t look more like Spicoli after a trip to the salon…


Nice! Cannot unsee the resemblance!


There’s no birthday party for me in here!


I learned almost nothing from that interview. They play a lot of cards and Ryan gets worked on maybe twice a day. Check that, maybe 3 or 4 times a day?

Lochte is an incredible swimmer, but he’s not the most intellectual guy… Lol.


They changed it, galldangit!

Whoever decided to give this guy a college degree should be completely ashamed.


Why are you always such a rude person (moderater edit).


Lochte’s intelligence is obviously perfectly adequate to become the top level athlete he is. He’s smart at swimming. You either respect what it takes to get to his level, or you don’t respect the sport, in my view. There are other successful swimmers (perhaps less diverse swimmers) who are academic – but they aren’t Lochte.

All accounts say that he is a very warm and humble person. What more could you ask of someone?


Sounds like an old school and new school bro that just hang out and exchange stories.
