I thought I was the only one who wondered what the hell Ryan Lochte did to garner so much attention. Sure he went to Florida. Sure he went to the Olympics and got some medals.

But the way that he was hyped up going into the Olympics and during it was something, well to be quite honest, something we’ve seen before. You see…Ryan Lochte is good looking and white.

Yep. That’s what I’m calling. Good looking and white. If you’ve got those two going for you, you can succeed in America. And before you pull out your race card¬†cards,¬†I wonder the same thing about Lolo Jones. She’s good looking and light skin black! There. I’ve tackled both sides of the race debate.

GQ Magazine released it’s list of The Lease Influential People of 2012 and Ryan Lochte sits at #8. Dwight Howard sits at #4. Other sports personalities on the list include former Saints Def. Coordinator Greg Williams, Lance Armstrong, Keith Olberman (although he’s a former sports personality), former Mets skipper Bobby Valentine, New York Knicks owner James Dolan, and Hulk Hogan.
