RIO — We’ve learned a lot about Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps the last few weeks.
One of those things? Don’t wear Steelers gear if you want him to answer you.
During a press conference aired by ESPN, a reporter asked him a question — and Phelps focused in on what he was wearing.
“Is that a Steelers….oh man! Golly!,” said Phelps, who is from Baltimore.
He then spots a reporter wearing Ravens gear.
“There’s some Ravens. Man, Steelers,” he said shuddering and laughing.
Later he said while he’s a Ravens fan, he can appreciate their competition with the Steelers, according to Cincinnati.com.
“I always think we’re going to beat Pittsburgh. But I think one of the cool things about that is we always play each other really hard. As much as I’m not a Steelers fan, the games are really exciting. We get a lot of intense hits.”
