Funny Lochte-Phelps video might be best of the ‘Call Me Maybe’ parody genre In addition to dozens of columns hailing a passing of the torch in the pool, Ryan Lochte’s dominant victory over Michael Phelps in the 400m IM on Saturday spawned something else inevitable.   Treat yourself to the “Call Me Maybe” parody video celebrating Lochte finally pushing his biggest rival aside.   I’m in a personal hell I kind of hate Michael Phelps I wish he’d drown in a well That dude is in my way When I first saw that guy swim He got nothing but wins I could’ve sworn he had fins But now he’s in my way More gold than Mark Spitz Strange pecs, taking bong hits Stay smooth, shave your armpits Where you think you’re swimming, Mikey?

Now we’re learning that the fashion-conscious Lochte actually...

Phelps' dominance makes him best ever

Michael Phelps told them "thank you," which seemed like a pretty strange thing for a man who had just become the most decorated Olympic athlete of all time to say to teammates huddled around him after Tuesday's 4x200 gold medal-winning freestyle relay. "Thank you," American swimmer Ricky Berens said in response because, well, "you're welcome"...

Ryan Lochte and Tyson Gay Featured in Olympic Hologram on Surface of Boston Harbor
