Remember five years ago when rappers were all about wearing GRILLZ over their teeth? Well, apparently that trend just caught on in the world of U.S. swimming.
--When RYAN LOCHTE beat MICHAEL PHELPS to win his first gold medal on Saturday, he planned to wear a special red, white, and blue GRILL on the medal stand. But the Olympic organizers heard about it . . . and told him NO.
--Apparently, they told Lochte that if he wore the grillz, they WOULDN'T GIVE HIM his medal. So he didn't. Which, long-term, he'll probably be happy about. They really did protect him from himself.
