Nobody’s Perfect: Ryan Lochte VS Sam Kendrick

Nobody’s Perfect:

 “I would send him to go shower when he was messing around. He spent more time in the showers than he did in the pool.”

                                                                                                          …Ryan Lochte’s father.

Not much has changed with Ryan has it?

Our “scandal of the week to get Hillary off the front pages” was the scandal of Ryan Lochte’s, the American Olympic gold medal winner— famously pissing off the Brazilians.

The story went…on their last night in Rio, the gold medal American men’s swim team decided to make a Rio night on the town, and what a night it must have been. Sometime EARLY the next morning, they were all drunk and had to go to the bathroom at some gas station.

Then Ryan Lochte made this comment:Ryan two

They are saying that the boys, while drunk, damaged the bathroom and were trying to leave and some cops just HAPPENED to be right there, and brought out their guns and DID point the guns at them, but it was because…they weren’t ABOUT to let some snot-nosed Americans get away with peeing on the floor…something that is very common here in most bars. (I know, I’ve SEEN the men’s restrooms in bars—-No WONDER they prefer the nearest tree.)

Ryan didn’t notice the fact that there were camera’s filming…and the world found out that it didn’t go down like Ryan said. Somehow, the cops got MONEY from the boys…having not have to go through a court system like they do here. (Even though I’m sure this happens in America too.)Ryan four

There is no indication in the videos released to date or in the statements that the other three swimmers did anything beyond urinate behind the building. Pretty boy Lochte was probably looking for the showers.

The reported… “They broke mirrors.” was a lie too. Evidently BOTH cops and swimmers were stretching the truth, being as it’s so easy to do these days…as we see politicians doing it daily..and so, Ryan Lochke apologized and will go into rehab, and come out and win the gold in Tokyo, because his main rival Phelps will NOT BE THERE..and hey, if the country can forgive Phelps, why not him?

At least that’s what Ryan is hoping.

In the NBC interview that aired Saturday, Lochte said, “It’s how you want to make it look like. Whether you call it a robbery, whether you call it extortion or us just paying for the damages. Like, we don’t know. All we know is there was a gun pointed in our direction and we were demanded to give money.’’

Lochte initially claimed that he was robbed of $400 and has yet to say if that was another embellishment.

And so, all those great triumphs of our American athletes got sullied due to a bunch of guys who are old enough to know better than to get shit-faced drunk in another country right after winning.

Stupid.

Which brings me to THIS young man:

You could say that Nobody’s Perfect, but compare Ryan Lochte with Sam Kendricks, who won a bronze medal for pole vaulting in Rio:

He was getting ready to jump and he heard our National Anthem.

Sam Kendricks is a U.S. Army Reserve 2nd lieutenant.

“They say back home, and jokingly in track circles, that if you win a medal, it will change your life. I think your life is changed on the way to that medal, honestly. With all the journeys and sacrifices that you make, all the training that you do, and the people you leave at home to watch. That is what is really the value of the medal. I’m glad I have something tangible to bring home and show for it. I know that everybody in Oxford will love to see it. But the journey, like my coach says, is the goal. Not necessarily the medals. And it’s very fun to come and compete, but not necessarily the end of all things.”

Yes, compare the two men.

Sam Kendricks will be remembered as a true American champion, and he is already eons ahead of Ryan in common sense.

Ryan Lochke will be remembered as just another spoiled brat American ‘boy” (He’s all of 32 and should be a man by now.)  who died his hair white, and was lucky enough to swim with the great Michael Phelps. Something tells me the word “champion” will not be spoken about him for quite some time.

(Poor dad.) Ryan three
