This week, Ryan Lochte also announced a reality show on E!. If it's possible, his show may be even a bigger train wreck than SID:THD. Sure it's funny for us; we're kind of "in" on the joke... but is this how we want our sport to look to outsiders? Ryan Lochte has already embarrassed himself in interviews and created a media personality as being sort of an idiot (I tried to phrase that nicely). Imagine a camera following him around 24hours/day??? Although, a thousand monkeys at a thousand type-writers will eventually write the great American novel... in other words, Ryan is likely to have 22min of intelligence in a week's time.
I have opened up the comments section for this post (which I NEVER do) because I'm interested in your opinion on this. I honestly don't know how to feel. Post below or send me a twitter message. Are we getting good exposure or will the public write fail to take our sport seriously?
