Michael Phelps is excited for football season

Now that 27-year-old Michael Phelps is “retired,” he has time for what really matters.

Following the NFL.

In an interview with USA Today, Phelps talks about his passion for the Ravens and his participation in fantasy football.

I’m so excited for football season,” Phelps said.  “We’re already talking trash about fantasy football and who we’re gonna draft and this and that.  So the draft is actually coming up.  I have like two weeks until draft day.  I’ve gotta start doing a little more research, and hopefully we can have another epic year like we had last year.”

Michael, we’ve got whatever you may need as you prepare for the 2012 season, either as a fan of the Ravens or as the owner of a fantasy football team.

And given the money you’ve made and will continue to make, you should consider setting your sights a little higher than owning a fantasy team.

    I think he’ll unretire in 4 years.

    That’s right folks. Ravens have die hard fans in Phelps AND the smoking hot Stacy Keibler. And both are hometown fans not bandwagon like 95% of Celebrities.

    You mean like owning a ticket, a parking space, and a hot dog for a game?? He may even have enough money for a beer!

    Josh Charles, from CBS’s “The Good Wife”, was at the open practice on Saturday!

    One of my favorite Baltimore memories was watching Phelps and the USA win a gold medal in 2008 on the jumbotron at M&T Bank Stadium with about 20,000 other fans an hour and a half after a Ravnes preseason game.
