Fall Television to Become Supersaturated with Michael Phelps

Posted by thelanetrain on August 28, 2008

So what do you do when you win 8 gold medals and become the single greatest athlete in the world (and history)?  You go into show business, duh!  The 23 year old phenomenon (and power eater) will do at least two TV appearances this fall.  First and foremost, he will be hosting the September 13th premiere of Saturday Night Live with musical guest Lil’ Wayne, and will follow in a tradition of great athlete-actors, such as Wayne Gretzky, Derek Jeter, and fellow Olympic Gold Medalist LeBron James(I know, I’m shuddering too).  In addition Phelps is slated to make an appearance on the popular HBO Series “Entourage”.  And finally, he will present an award at the VMAs next week.

Any more of this superstar on my precious boob tube and I’m gonna start feeling waterlogged…
