Michael Phelps Starbucks GOAT

Starbucks Barista Tells Michael Phelps What They Really Think of Him

Though many of us have had a unique spelling of our name delivered to us on the side of a Starbucks cup, Michael Phelps got a particularly surprising nickname on his quad-shot (OK, Michael) latte today in four little letters.

A post shared by Michael Phelps (@m_phelps00) on

Michael said the GOAT nickname "made us all laugh" when he shared it on his Instagram. We agree that though it isn't his given name, it's still equally appropriate. Can we just say though, while it's hilarious that Michael's wife, Nicole, got a cup with "Wife of GOAT" written on the side (apparently she thought it was funny, too!), maybe the next barista can give Michael a cup with "Husband of Miss California" on it.
