Here at BC we are always fans of seeing random athletes partying. You can imagine our excitement when we stumbled across this gem on Twitter. Yes, that is Olympic gold medalist Ryan Lochte on the left with a lame shaggy hair cut. Before he was a media darling he had the “long hair, don’t care” mentality and enjoyed drinking vodka and cranberry. This photo recently surfaced on Twitter via @fortheuyen and also features NFL wide receiver Riley Cooper!

Yeah, that other long-haired surfer bro on the right is none other than Philadelphia Eagles WR Riley Cooper. No, we don’t have any idea who the bro in the orange polo is. Last week @fortheyuen tweeted out the photo with the following message:

FYI Grog is a popular bar in Gainesville, and Cooper actually responded to Uyen moments later:

You might be wondering how these two ended up partying together? Well both Lochte and Cooper are Florida grads and overlapped one year. Lochte was a senior in 2006 and Cooper was a freshman. One thing leads to another and the swim team star and random football freshman were throwing back drinks at Grog. Go figure.

P.S. Riley Cooper had some crazy stats as a freshman…4 catches, 92 yards, 3 touchdowns!
