One of our talk shows got this pitch this weekend:

... It’s been suggested that Michael Phelps's ADHD, having been diagnosed at age 9, may have played a role in his failure to attain an Olympic win this past weekend. This is a hot button position that Dr. Kevin would love to connect with you to weigh in on, although from a counterpoint position.  

This news arrived today:

OLYMPIC RESULT: Michael Phelps sets Olympic record with 19th lifetime medal, winning gold in the 4x200-meter freestyle relay.
