The Michael Phelps? picture that may shake the world to its core

phelpsbong.jpgSeveral media outlets have picked up a story from News of the World which allegedly shows 14-time Olympic  medalist Michael Phelps allegedly inhaling from a bong. Again, allegedly.

New of the World claims Phelps' aides "went into a panic over our story and offered us (them) a raft of extraordinary incentives not to run the bong picture."

The photos was supposedly snapped on Nov. 6 at the University of South Carolina.

This story is surely going to attract widespread attention and, if true, could be damaging to both Phelps' career and reputation.
The questions we pose to you are these:

1. Do you think this is a legit photo?
2. If legit, does it affect your view of Phelps?
