SAY WHAT?

Swimming coach Bob Bowman hopes star pupil Michael Phelps doesn't call him to start training again. "If he does, I'm going to encourage him to think again," Bowman said. "I'm not sure there's much more he can do in swimming."... Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels thinks the Nationals shouldn't bench ace Stephen Strasburg to protect his arm: "I know you want to prepare for the future, but if this is your one opportunity to win the World Series, you have to go for broke."... Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim made a distinction between being an assistant for the U.S. men's basketball team and what it would be like coaching pros full time. "The money and superstar status don't apply to this team," Boeheim said. "This team, nobody's making any money. They're all here to be part of a team."... NBC Olympic pundit Willie Geist commented on American judoka Nick Delpopolo's expulsion from the Olympics for testing positive for marijuana. "What exactly is the advantage that weed would give you?" Geist asked. "Why is it even on the banned substance list? To slow down your time a bit?"
