Yesterday on Pardon the Interruption, Cincinnati Bengals receiver, world-class talker and self-professed Olympics fan Chad Johnson said he could beat Michael Phelps in any swimming race. After being lobbed a question on whether he could beat Phelps, Ocho Cinco responded:

Where I'm from -- Liberty City -- I know a couple of people who can beat Michael Phelps right now. Seriously. I'm telling you. And I'm one of 'em."

During the interview Johnson also claimed he was the three-time Charles Hadley Pool champion. A quick search reveals that a Charles Hadley Pool does indeed exist in Liberty City (Miami), but no records of Johnson's swimming exploits are available. But if there's one thing I know about Chad Johnson, it's that he'd never, ever say anything just to get attention.

The Olympics talk beings with 1:22 remaining in "Five Good Minutes".
