Michael Phelps surprised with the best Starbucks cup ‘misspelling’ ever

Michael Phelps went to a Starbucks on Monday and, much like my experience at the coffee store today, his name was incorrectly spelled by the barista. But Phelps, the 22-time gold medalist and the (G)reatest (O)f (A)ll (T)ime at the Olympics, got a description perhaps a little more accurate than “Michael.”

Interesting names on our Starbucks cups today 😁🙊made us all laugh #hiltonvillage

That’s gold – pun intended – and far better than the “Khris” I got.

Also of note: The “4” written on the cup suggests Phelps gets a quadruple shot of espresso. Two decades of getting up at 4 a.m. for swim practice will take its toll.
