The Olympics are finally over, and no one is really talking about the competition, but the story of the games was Ryan Lochte. The dude was in the spotlight from start to finish. Came in with sterling silver hair, and left with a good story about standing up to a robber who held him at gunpoint. Problem is Lochte made up the story about getting robbed as he was coming home with some teammates. Everyone is outraged with what Lochte did, but I could see Lochte doing what he did from a mile away. Lochte is an electric character who is as entertaining as they come.
Ryan Lochte has been in the shadow of Micheal Phelps for most of his swimming career. All eyes are always on Micheal Phelps whenever he's in a pool, Ryan Lochte is always second fiddle. Lochte went into this Olympics trying to make a statement. He was going to steal the spotlight from Phelps. His first step was to show up with an electric hairdo. However, his silver hair turned green due to the pool water so his plan was foiled. Then Micheal Phelps went on an amazing streak of wins to end his swimming career. Leaving Lochte in his wake, Phelps was the talk of the town. So what did Lochte do, he made up a tale of him being a hero. According to Lochte he and some of his teammates were in a taxi when police pulled the car over. But the cops turned out to be imposters who told the swimmers to get on the ground. Lochte refused even with a gun to his head, and when told to get down he said, "Whatever". This was a red flag in the story, no one in their right mind would say no with a gun to their head. Lochte claimed the men robbed him yet, was seen with his wallet, phone and credentials, so what exactly did they take from him in the first place? If you're going to make up a story about getting robbed then sell it and get rid of all your stuff.
Ryan Lochte is a grade A clown. He's a moron, and if you ever watched his reality TV show you would've known this. He's a kid in a grown man's body. The type of guy to sing along to the Goofy Goober song from Spongebob. Can I blame Lochte for trying to make a splash this Olympics? No not at all, the man is swimming in the wrong time. But lying about getting robbed is some childish town foolery. This is not the last we see of Ryan Lochte, mark my words. I see him taking the Shia Labeouf route, and riding an elevator for 24 hours or hitchhiking around the country. Lochte is too much of a character to just go into hiding, the world needs Lochte as much as I need air.
