Rousey to Phelps: get over yourself. All you do is swim

by Maggie Hendricks | source:

Rousey said while at a party for all American Olympians, the athletes happily mingled together. NBA players hung with the rest of the group, but Phelps had his own area that was just for his group.

"These NBA players are a bigger deal than this guy, and they're hanging out with us. We're teammates. We're not a bunch of groupies. Come hang out with us," Rousey said.

She said it was a similar set-up when Team USA visited "The Oprah Winfrey Show," which rubbed her the wrong way.

"I don't like being somebody's teammate and being treated like I'm a groupie. I didn't even want to go out of my way to say hello to that guy. Get over yourself. All you do is swim. If someone slapped you every time you jumped in the pool, I might have a little respect, but I was a swimmer before I did this stuff, and you can't tell me that swimming is OH MY GOD, because it's not."

Jesus man, seriously? The GOAT in his particular sport is "useless"?The guy has been more successful in his field than 99% of the human race has been in theirs.I think I saw something where he trained EVERY day from something like age 13 to 18 (including Christmas). 5 fucking years straight of training. If you can't respect his achievements, drive and perseverance as an athlete then you have never been an athlete or trained for anything in your life (so sit down and STFU because you know not what you speak of) are a white-knighting troll (no matter what you say RR won't hook up with you) or are a woman (in which case you're excused).
