The Baltimore Ravens’ No. 1 fan has arrived in New Orleans, the site of Sunday’s Super Bowl.

Michael Phelps, who can also be called the Greatest Olympian of All Time (G.O.A.T.), hopes to cap his busy – and definitely exciting – week by witnessing a Ravens victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

Phelps visited the Ping headquarters in Phoenix earlier this week, where he was fitted with a brand new – and custom designed – set of golf clubs. And when we say custom, we really mean custom. Then the 22-time Olympic medalist played in Wednesday’s pro-Am with golfer Bubba Watson at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, where he was mobbed by fans, got booed on the famous par-3 16th hole and admitted he was “very nervous” playing golf in front of so many people.

(Note: We’ll see more of Phelps on the golf course starting Feb. 25 on Golf Channel.)

After his round on the links, Phelps hopped on a plane bound for Super Bowl land. Now he’s there to cheer on his favorite team (the Ravens) and his favorite player (Ray Lewis). We’ll leave out any deer antler jokes.

But seriously, enjoy NOLA, Mr. G.O.A.T.

    Sure, the greatest swimmer he is. But medalist? Come on, they give out medals in swimming for EVERYTHING. Surprised they don’t give one out for who can hold their breath under water the longest. Different thought though: He looks like he could be Joe Flacco’s brother.

    Different note (and I’m sure the ones that approve comments won’t let this pass, but I’ll still try), sign my White House petition saving wasteful money with the simple idea of getting rid of the penny and nickel! That’s one thing we can all agree on right lol?
