The Phelps Machine is Unstoppable!

| Filed under: ZportzMichael PhelpsBusiness Blitz

Michael Phelps is making a habit of 'history making'!

Starting today, Monday, for the first time in its history, Sports Illustrated has made one of its covers into a poster available for the public to buy.

Buy being the operative word.

And, of course, said cover is the one which features golden boy Phelps wearing all eight of his gold medals.

Here's what Phelps had to say about the honor:

"I have spoken at length about my desires to help grow the sport of swimming and I am truly honored that Sports Illustrated has chosen to create this commemorative poster for fans across the US and around the world. I hope the poster will serve as a reminder to all that anything is possible."

And we're sure he hopes it makes him a lot of money too!

Click here to buy one of the Phelps/Sports Illustrated posters.

  3. 3

    Haha, Boy just isn't attractive.
    But gotta love a swimmer's body.



  4. 4

  6. 6

    HUGE pass.



  7. 7

    Ummm No! Maybe if his face was cut off……



  8. 8

    Please stop posting pics of him? *barf*



  9. 9

    I am still loving all the phelps coverage! especially the spoofs on youtube. I probably won't buy the poster, but I will buy his book!



  10. 10

    Is it just me or does he look like fucken Screech Powers without the Jewish fro? God he's soo fucken ugly. My eyes are dripping of acid.



  11. 11

    WHAT A SEXY BELLY BUTTON!
    yummy tummy!



  12. 12

    Whoever came up with that cover-art needs to be smacked upside their head. Very unfortunate and unflattering layout - all those ribbons blend into a red halter-top. Though it would work well at any CSD function…



  13. 13

    That halter top/belly shirt doesn't fit him well. There is definitely a nipple slip.



  14. 14

    stop hatin on how he's supossedly soooo ugly! he probably looks better than half of u motherfuckers..plus he likes lil wayne soooo I LOVE HIM and he's hoT!



  15. 15

    It's funny Sports Illustrated is a magazine for athletes but in some cases, such
    as Michael Phelps, I'd much rather see the non athletic chicks in bikini's on
    the cover.



  16. 16

    not a good pic of him!



  17. 17

    total butter face.



  18. 18

    Re: SaM said it!!!
    Ohhh, he likes Lil Wayne?
    Well geeze, if there ever was a reason to like another person,
    there ya have it.



  19. 19

    Re: SaM said it!!! – I wouldn't talk if i were you, you look like you're not so great looking yourself.



  20. 20

    That face….its so unfortunate.

    What a waste of a hot body.



  21. 21

    It's a damn good piece of luck that he has the swimmer-thing going for him.
    :l
    From the top of the medals upward, it looks like he's wearing a sleeveless dress.
    c( ^ )c



  22. 22

    How many do You have Perez?



  23. 23

    no.



  24. 24

    Mmmm…..no.

    It's great what he accomplished and all, but I just don't care enough.



  25. 25

    Hi Jet [1] - Have we met? LOL



  26. 26

    Well he truly is making waves. My macho 8-year-old hockey-football-baseball-basketball fanatic nephew has not taken his goggles off nor gotten out of the pool since watching Phelps these past two weeks. All his friends are super into it, too. It's not us geezers he's targeting — so stuff it, you haters. For little American boys and girls everywhere, it's now Michael Phelps this, Michael Phelps that. He is doing some serious stuff for swimming!!! I know we were totally into how Mark Spitz LOOKED, but he certainly didn't make me want to go into the pool.



  27. 27

    my wall is already covered with magazine covers with him on it, so no i don't think it's necessary for me to get one. haha



  28. 28

    If you scroll down the way I scrolled down it looks like he is wearing a formal gown. I am not getting one, the medals cover his best features. They should have made a mask out of them.



  29. 29

    he is superrrr HHHHHHHHHHHOOOOOTTTTTTT
    yummy :) :):)



  30. 30

    idc about him!!!!
    hes ugly anyways no one wants to see him naked
    i mean nice bod
    just put a bag over his head(:



  31. 31

    wanna see his cock so bad

  32. Zippy says – reply to this


    32

    I only want attractive men on my wall thanks.



  33. 33

    Put Chace's face over Michael's and maybe I'd buy it.



  34. 34

    ugh I am sooo tired of hearing about him!
    I just don't care



  35. 35

    I can't believe how mean everyone is commenting about his looks!! 1. He has no control over the way he looks, it's just how he was born. 2. He's accomplished a lot and he should be recognized for his talents, not ridiculed for his appearance. 3. Sports Illustrated in a sports magazine, not a fashion or beauty magazine. He's not trying to have a modeling career, he's being recognized for his athletic accomplishments. So why all the mean comments about his appearance?



  36. 36

    God he's gorgeous, I bet he's good in bed too



  37. 37

    Dude looks like the world's tallest actor, the late, Matthew McGrory from BIG FISH… (who, actually took my fake ID when he worked at a bar back when I was in College.) PEREZ PLEASE DO A PHOTO COMPARISON!!



  38. 38

    I may need it so my dog can pee on it….



  39. 39

    This is going to be bigger than Farrah Fawcett!!!!!!!!!!



  40. 40

    btw i heard he uses his peepee as a rudder while he swims.
    congrat's michael on the gold…



  41. 41

    This kid is a total stud and set for life now … No need to even swim in 2012 again… But I'm glad that he still will.



  42. 42

    he looks like he's wearin a halter top. the mark spitz photo is way groovier with the metal chains and the pornstache.



  43. 43

    already gotone haha



  44. 44

    he resembles two people to me,he kinda looks like an aneroxic andre the giantI know hes dead now and the worlds tallest man in guniess book of world records



  45. 45

    Clearly, in a cage match, this gentlemen would defeat me



  46. 46

    LOL are you kidding me, thats the cheesiest thing ever, who the fuck wants a poster of gremlin phelps? lame.



  47. 47

    i love him! so what if hes not a pretty boy and hes got an underbite, i think hes so cute!!! but i'm a broke ass so no poster for me :-(



  48. 48

    ugh hell nooo hes ugh. nice bod tho



  49. 49

    Re: LoveyHowell – Oh please. Will you be buying your precious the Frosted Flakes when he asks for them, too?



  50. 50

    if that picture at the top is the poster, then i love it. he looks amazing. the important thing is that he is doing really well getting his message across not to mention expressing his love for what he does. forget money, i absolutely hate money. sure its necessary to have in this world, but to me it destroys relationships and sometimes people. so go phelps! keep expressing you love for swimming!



  51. 51

    This must be a 3rd party selling these, b/c Sports Illustrated has sold their covers in poster form for YEARS. I have 3 personally dating back to 2000



  52. 52

    no
    but i love him still! lol



  53. 53

    Spend a buck, have those ears shaved down.



  54. 54

    I'm getting one for my classroom. I think that Phelps is a true inspiration for kids. I have already told the story about Phelps being bullied in grade school and how you never know who the person you are bullying will turn out to be.



  55. 55

    no i wont buy.

    unless he posed in nude.

    r-



  56. 56

    he's hoTTTT!!!!swoon…i wanna have him



  57. 57

    hell yes im gettin one!



  58. 58

    Re: LoveyHowell
    hahahahaha!!! Stuff it!!! I agree right along with you on that. For once, their is a TRUE celebrity children everywhere can look up to and be inspired. I prefer my little cousins to be inspired by him than the irresponsible, immature assholes the media continues to glorify. Some people are just too damn stupid. Who the fu*k cares about how he looks?!?!?! I bet these people focusing on looks are most likely the same bipolar asses that was so pumped and so proud of him last week and representing this "great United nation called The United States."…….. United my ass.



  59. 59

    Re: OCMD ALI – I totally second to that suggestion. He does look like him, I met that guy in person before he passed away. He was nice.



  60. 60

    When I was scrolling down the page,& only saw half of the picture, I couldve sworn he was wearing some kind of dress. Nick Jonas or Joe Jonas would look hot posing w. those medals, instead of Michael Phelps



  61. 61

    Hmm the only person that looks good with big ears is Will Smith. Sorry Phelps, just ain't working for ya.



  62. 62

    his face looks like a foot



  63. 63

    hellzz yeah



  64. 64

    That is a horrible picture of him. He should shoot another one real soon.



  65. 65

    Wow! A giant photo of a retard who can swim really really fast.
    Gotta run out and buy it.

  66. tetzy says – reply to this


    66

    Can somebody say gayface? Repeat after me: GAAAY-FAAACE!

    Sorry, but ewwwww!



  67. 67

    No way. That photo is way too unflattering. Blue background mighta made those medals pop even more. That red is just too, too… yuck. Bad decision.

  68. DLR says – reply to this


    68

    HahahahahaHahahahahaHahahahahaHahahahaha! That was the funniest question I've seen you ask Perez! Moi buy a Phelps poster, moi the Canadian? Nah, I'll take a huge pass on that offer from SI. :P

    But, but, but, if SI is selling Ryan Lochte posters, I just might, maybe, maybe, just for the self-loving factor. ;)



  69. 69

    Can everyone shut up about this tard already?



  70. 70

    He is hot.. But I prefer Usain Bolt's poster.



  71. 71

    Re: moon_the_pimp
    Usually tall people have big ones :p.



  72. 72

    Ew no, no thanx.
    .
    .
    EVER HEAR OF "DEAF GUY FACE"!?!?! Well, Phelps has that shit, hardcore!
    .
    .
    I bet when he talks he sounds like a log rolling down a hill



  73. 73

    NO



  74. 74

    Michael Phelps is ugly as Hell. I dont want that face on my Frosted flakes. PMGO (puke my guts out).



  75. 75

    EEEkkkkk Who the hell would want to wake up and see that face every morning unless you're like five and retarded?- or of course he's spending some of his money on ya the morning after hehe. Sure, he's a great athelete and has a great bod..but OMG that face..eeeekkkk.



  76. 76

    I already ordered it. :)

  77. Paty says – reply to this


    77

    Only to cut his head off.



  78. 78

    I LOVE Michael Phelps he's sooooo hott,that being said I'm not 12 I dont have poster's hangig up in my room so i'll just save any pics of him to photobucket or something.



  79. 79

    Great Body, but that face could back a bulldog off a meat truck..



  80. 80

    While his talent cannot be denied, his face should be.



  81. 81

    He never claimed to be a fashion model people. However, he is a "10" role model. Michael respects and loves his Mother (always good right?) works hard and stays focused on his goals and dreams. I could care less what he looks like, it's all good to see someone who isn't a mess for a change.

  82. midi says – reply to this


    82

    no, but i like the blue poster much better.



  83. 83

    Re: LuluLaRue – We think YOU're 5 and retarded.

  84. midi says – reply to this


    84

    i agree with other posters who are saying he is a much better role model then the typical hollyrude celebs!



  85. 85

    he`s doing a lot for the swimming sport.



  86. 86

    No thanks. I mean, he's a talented swimmer - amazing even - but if i wanted a picture of a man in an ugly halter top i'd subscribe to Tranny Weekly.



  87. 87

    I think his face is handsome



  88. 88

    Yep. Pretty much gunna order it. I find him inspirational (and a decent looking and sounding human being). It's going between the Transformers and Sweeney Todd posters. =)



  89. 89

    Whats wrong with you people? Always thinking about money, banging, "he's ugly" etc.

    Why cant we embrace the guy! I had chills watching the guy swim and actually shed a tear when he won the gold a few times.

    I think the SI picture is great.



  90. 90

    Wow. Talk about a prawn.
    Ill keep the body and throw the head away thanks.



  91. 91

    Re: HAMphetamine
    Hahaha!!!

    To the people trying to be all righteous, get over it. He may be a role model and one hell of a swimmer but that doesnt mean he's good looking or that I cant say that he looks like a retarded monkey with a hot bod.



  92. 92

    cant wait till the olympic hoopla ends im sick of hearing about michael phelps like he is the second coming of Jesus or something



  93. 93

    Re: moon_the_pimp – shut up, fag!



  94. 94

    Yes, I already ordered both, I can't wait for them to arrive.!!



  95. 95

    Re: LuluLaRue – "Eeeeeek who would want to see that face in the morning!" Im sure your last one night stand said the same thing …

    Re: CoffeeLover
    i love your comment and agree with it 100%
    MP is not bad looking. He has a great smile, and looks really good



  97. 97

    Damn.
    I do not think even a mother could love that face.



  98. 98

    WHERE'S MY COVER BROS?!



  99. 99

    god he is king of the butter faces



  100. 100

    I know, don't you wish it was me?
