So Micheal Phelps should get 10,000,000
Phelps could make 8 figures from endorsements. He doesn't need any petty cash.
i'd never thought I'd live to see DUMBO swim until i saw Michael Phelps.....lol..... He's just the flavor of the month right now, people will forget about him in a couple of months.
Not if he plays his cards right with the endorsements and whatnot...
I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

Phelps got 1 million dollars from Speedo simply by winning the 8th gold medal.
Not to mention, he's making millions more through all his different sponsors. I forgot all of them, I've seen the list at one point and there's like 30-40 companies on it. It's estimated he can earn $40 million from the endorsers.
He's also getting interviewed left and right for this and that. Practically every good news station or magazine writer had to outbid each other to try and get an interview with him. And that's not just USA companies. That's globally as well.
And he gots his own merchandise line.
Plus he's been touring all over the place. Disney, NYC, and London in the past week or so.
Oh, and he's competing in the 2012 Olympics. The fun never ends. =D
wow, facebook is sooooooo helpful =P
