Clever baristas are part of what Starbucks is known for, and they didn’t disappoint gold-medal-winning marvel Michael Phelps when he stopped for coffee. Establishing with a sharpie the fact that Phelps is the GOAT — greatest of all time — the barista also put the other coffee orders in their rightful place. Michael Phelps being the sun in this solar system, his wife and friend were simply referred to as “Wife of GOAT” and “Friend of GOAT.”
Perfect. The only thing that looked strange is that the unidentified friend’s coffee is bigger than the one for “The GOAT” — Phelps, that is. Who is this friend? And what is he doing with something bigger to drink than Phelps himself. Phelps no longer consumes the 12,000 calories he did during training to become the GOAT. He says with his competitive days behind him he now just “eats what he needs.” But c’mon Michael Phelps, is that a MEDIUM?
