    Phelps: The Phlipper?

    We were discussing the fact that Michael Phelps doesn't have a cool nickname like Ian "The Thorpedo" Thorpe. So, Mr. RG came up with THE PHLIPPER--which I thought was really cool. (You know, like FLIPPER, the dolphin?)

    Any other suggestions?
    :D

    I like Phlipper! I foumd out last night that Michael is my aunts second cousin. How slow is Piel? My aunt's maiden name was Phelps and she was a swimming coach and I never put 2 and 2 together ( we need a thumps self in head emoticon).

    OK if you remember the song it's time for some Flipper trivia. Name the actor who played Sandy the older brother on Flipper. He was a regular along with Donnie Osmond, David Cassidy , and Bobby Sherman (my sister Karen's fav)on the cover of all of the teen magazines.

    That hottie was then 15y/o Luke Halpin who played Sandy Ricks on Flipper. He had a younger brother on the show but I can't remember his name. :D
