When you have a child who makes it to the Olympics, you pretty much have only one job: Don’t embarrass them. After all, you should get tons of accolades for doing whatever you did to support your offspring for reaching the ultimate in athletic achievements. It’s best not to screw it up by going and doing something really, really dumb while at the Games that’s totally mortifying and distracts from your superstar child.
Are you listening, Ryan Lochte’s mom?
The gold-medal winning Olympic swimmer has been getting lots of attention in London. Some of it has been for swimming. Some of it has been for an unfortunate grill that he wanted to wear on the medal podium. And now some of it is because it has been revealed that apparently he’s that guy who can’t stand to be in a relationship and is only interested in women for one-night stands. How do we know that? His mom told us.
“He goes out on one-night stands,” Ike Lochte said on the Today show, according to the New York Daily News. “He’s not able to give fully to a relationship because he’s always on the go.”
The news comes on the heels of the revelation in Women’s Health that Lochte kisses and tells all to his buddies, and he thinks women are sexiest when wearing his shirts (and nothing else).
Anyone else waiting to hear if he’s a boxers or briefs guy? If he likes his toilet paper over or under? Crunchy or smooth peanut butter? How about the age when he stopped wetting the bed?
We’re waiting, Ike.
Do you think athletes’ parents should be seen and not heard for this reason?
