Subway and Phelps Kiss and Make Up

So it goes in many a tumultuous relationship: one party wrongs the other party, apologizes, and then they have make up sex. This is exactly what just happened to Michael Phelps and Subway…minus the sex part. After he was dropped from cereal juggernaut, Kellogg’s, fellow-endorser, Subway, finally decided to speak out as well. However, instead of a slap in the face, and the whole “you don’t deserve me!” spiel, Subway happily opened its arms and accepted Phelps’ apology for the recent photos that feature him taking a bong rip.

Despite the rough week Phelps has experienced, at least he has assurance that he can still walk in to a Subway location stoned, hold his head high with pride, greet and high-five the teenager behind the counter, and stock up on his sandwiches AKA munchies (probably for free, at that).

Subway admitted that although they are disappointed with Phelps, they still want to give him a second chance,

“Also like most Americans, we accept his apology. Moving forward, he remains in our plans.” -Subway (eat fresh)

The truth is, we all make mistakes. Subway recognized this, and we’re glad that Phelps isn’t losing all of his endorsements. He’s still a phenomenal athlete, and hopefully one who can appreciate a second chance. In the words of one of our favorite cartoon characters, we at THE POP FIX hope that Phelps will…

    I heard that Phelps was signed to endorse zig zag rolling papers and is now the spokesperson for the National glacoma foundation and the
    medical marajuana growers coop. I dont think we need to worry about his financial security. He has plenty of green and not just the stuff in his pipe.

    Phelps is a great athlete but he seems like a douche. Winning 8 gold medals still doesn’t grant you the right to be a douche.
