For you cynics out there, the connection is not as simple as Phelps went to Michigan just like me. And no, it doesn't involve this column I wrote at the end of the school year involving Phelps.
No, thanks to Graham's watchful eye, we have a photo detailing my connection to the man who will likely go down as America's greatest swimmer ever.
From the cabinets and wood beams in the background, this was clearly taken at my senior year residence, 814 East University.
There's also a picture of Graham's sister up somewhere, but it's kind of unnecessary to post it at this time. The key point of this post is to acknowledge Phelps's love of everything 814.
