Michael Phelps Reveals Who He's Rooting For in Super Bowl

Michael Phelps isn’t choosing sides when it comes to the 2017 Super Bowl.

Th 31-year-old Olympic swimmer recently kept mum on who he was rooting for – the Atlanta Falcons or New England Patriots.

“As an athlete you root to watch athletes do great and remarkable and impressive things that have never been done before. So you look at Tom [Brady] having a chance to win his fifth, you gotta root for him,” Michael said.

He added, “I’m keeping it more political and rooting for both sides. I’m rooting for the Under Armour family. We have an Under Armour guy on each side. Hopefully it’s a good game.”

Pictured: Michael and his wife Nicole attend the Giving Back Fund’s 2017 Big Game Big Give Charity Event with David Schwimmer, Josh Brolin, Common, and Rob Riggle held at Holthouse Estate on Saturday (February 4) in Houston, Texas. The event was sponsored by BBO Poker Tables.
