Michael Phelps finally meets his idol, the 'other' Michael


Michael Phelps' big year just keeps getting better. The most decorated Olympian finally met his idol, Michael Jordan, on Monday night. Jordan made a surprise appearance during a taping of "Feherty Live," and Phelps was so overwhelmed he could barely speak. "I froze. That's the one person in the world who could do that to me," Phelps said afterward. "I literally have always looked up to him." (Associated Press)
