Might As Well Jump

8/15/2008 2:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The 47-year-old resurfaced at a sports gala in NYC recently, looking sharp.
Carl Lewis
Carl -- who like Michael Phelps also once was arrested for DUI (the charge was later dismissed) -- qualified for the 1980 Olympics in Moscow, but the U.S. wound up boycotting those Games.

Lewis was drafted by the Chicago Bulls and the Dallas Cowboys in 1984, but never played a game for either team.

Hey to the poster who said are there any AA who keep their nose! Well, you must not watch Dr. 90210! Hey what about
Ashley Tisdale and her nose job! If it makes a person feel better then whose business is it. He not trying to change is race.

Are other races doing it when they change their noses. JMO, but you really got it wrong. Whites have it done more
than anyone on the planet even if they are not in SHOW BUSINESS! Oh, let's not forget Ashley Simpson too. she is
a cutie!

Kiss me I'm Irish!

Carl Lewis is GAY, sorry...I ran into him with a group of cute, gay guys in a club and he wasn't hiding it!! Sorry. I always wondered how it was never announced in the media.

Carl was PHYSICALLY perhaps the greatest Olympic T&F athlete ever....but his pompous, calculated personality ruined his chances of beig a real hero. With Carl, there was a feeling that every single smile and every tear that rolled down his cheek while he stood on the vistory stand was choreographed by him & his agents. And as an actor/singer....good gawd!

Carl Lewis' father was my high school track team coach in Willingboro, New Jersey in the early 80s. He taught at Kennedy High School and Carl and his sister, Carol, went to Willingboro High School. His father was a good man and a great coach. The Lewis family was the only thing good to come out of Willingboro.
David Miscavige also lived in Willingboro, New Jersey until 1972. I went to elementary school with him too.
