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.

The friend who put his pose in position – we know where we come from! The only difference between us and someone who has their MBA… is opportunity,” the 47-year-old rapper expressed. “LeBron James has provided his friends with that opportunity. But, tonight we say thank you. Not just for your commitment to basketball, but for all you’ve done for the community. And thank you for how you’ve enriched the lives of all those around you. You messed around and got a triple double in real life – I wrote that joke myself.”

Also in attendance was DJ Khaled, Ashley Graham and her husband Justin Ervin, Peyton Manning, Aly Raisman, models Hailey Clauson and Tanya Mityushina, and honoree Michael Phelps with his wife Nicole Johnson.
