Fans of the USA Network drama "Suits" will see one of their own on the show's Thursday night season premiere as Michael Phelps  pops in for a four-line appearance. The most decorated Olympian in history will play himself on the episode, scheduled to air at 9 p.m. Phelps' IMDb page also includes a 2008 appearance on HBO's "Entourage" in which he played, you guessed it, himself. The "Suits" appearance comes after several months of relative quiet for the retired swimmer, who spurred comeback speculation last year by re-entering the drug testing pool for international competition.

Michael Phelps has held a lot of titles. Olympic swimming champion. Philanthropist. Subway spokesman. Add a new one to the list: social media expert. The swimmer took over the official Ravens twitter account during last week's snowy last-minute victory over the Vikings, a social media stunt that, of course, spawned its own hash tag: #MPTakeover. His excitement was palpable. "THERE IT IS!!!!! Are you serious!?!?! 4TDs in 1:30!! Snowballs at M&T. Best game EVER for those who stayed!

Michael Phelps continued his global mystery tour this week with a trip to Sao Paulo, Brazil, to film his newest Subway commercial with soccer legend Pele. The mystery, of course, is whether Phelps will swim for more gold medals when Brazil hosts the 2016 Olympics. Phelps coyly evaded the speculation again in Sao Paulo, where he joked to a French news agency that his potential comeback is "the million-dollar question. " Phelps sent a strong signal that he's considering a comeback when he rejoined the international drug testing pool , meaning he could compete in 2014 if he chooses.

Michael Phelps has nothing left to prove in a swimming pool. His place in Olympic history is assured, and anything he might accomplish during the 2016 games in Rio de Janeiro - if he should decide to try and add to his record medal count - would just be, well, treading water. That said, if you're looking for someone to beg him to stay on the golf course, you came to the wrong place. Phelps has earned the right to never dip his toe into chlorinated water again if that's what he wants, but there is no reason for a 28-year-old guy to stop doing what he has done better than anyone as long as he still enjoys training and competing.

In discussing his potential return to competitive swimming , Michael Phelps told The Associated Press that he doesn't want to be likened to another athlete famous for his unretirements. "Just don't compare me to Brett Favre," he said . Chris Chase, who blogs for USA Today's "For The Win," has done just that. In a piece titled "Dear Michael Phelps, please don't turn into Brett Favre," Chase writes that the most decorated Olympian "would be wise to declare his intent the instant he knows it. No one likes a Brett Favre.

After months of hints and half-denials, Michael Phelps has re-entered the drug testing pool for international competition, the strongest signal yet that he's planning a return to swimming. Phelps, already widely regarded as the greatest competitive swimmer in history, has not announced that he's ending his retirement or that he plans to swim at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. And his longtime coach Bob Bowman said Thursday that “there are no definite plans to return to competition at this time.” But United States Anti-Doping Agency records posted Thursday indicate that Phelps would be eligible to compete again in 2014.

We've been on borrowed time all fall. With temperatures unusually high in October, I luxuriated in outdoor swimming. Every day that I swam outside under blue sky and big clouds at Meadowbrook, I knew cold days were coming: days when I'd have to push myself to put on a bathing suit inside a drafty house, days when I'd want my five-toed socks before putting on flip flops, days when the thick, hooded sweat shirt would not keep me warm before or...

Earlier this week during an interview with a TV station in Maine, Michael Phelps said “I'm retired. I love it. It's fun.” But the winner of the most medals in Olympic history is also busier than ever, saying “I'm on the road constantly. I'm always traveling.” The swimmer's latest adventure took him to Shanghai, China, this morning, where he and Under Armour founder and owner Kevin Plank opened the newest “Under Armour Experience” at the Jing An Kerry Centre. Phelps wasn't kidding about his travel schedule.
