Chad Johnson said he could beat Michael Phelps on Pardon the Interuption:
“The problem with Michael Phelps is there’s no competition where he is. If he came to where I’m from, which is the inner city, you know in Liberty City, I was a three-time Charles Hadley pool champ. No, no, don’t laugh. This is not funny. Some of the best people in the world are the people who are not able to make it to that level. Where I’m from, I know a couple of people who could beat Michael Phelps now, serious, and I’m one of them.”
Johnson was serious when he said that. TK and Wilbon were laughing, but Johnson was serious. No, no, don’t laugh. I’m serious that he was serious.
Michael Phelps is 23 and has 11 Olympic gold medals and 33 world records. Presumably Johnson could set 34 world records.
As for Johnson, well his career high for catches in a season is 97. Marvin Harrison’s single season record is 143. Good luck setting just one NFL record, Johnson.
