    i hope I don't have to deal with either of those but alas I see the signs! Don't get me started on boyo; I guarantee I will be that overbearing intimidating father who grills any boy coming to our door.

    the past few days have been tough. Deanna is suffering the worst. I have my morning Netipot at the aquatic center! Gross but very affective

    It was just one of those day's that seems like it must happen, in order to make all the other days feel quite reasonable lol

    corrected after the fact but it did not matter because by that time he had sent the picture half way around the world.
    Too funny. I have a video of me swimming the 400 SCY IM at our state meet. The camera pans to the scoreboard after the race and it says 3:56 next to my name - never thought to send it around though. (actual time is ~5:32.)

    he is 40 however his time was most certainly wrong on the board. Tens corrected after the fact but it did not matter because by that time he had sent the picture half way around the world. Honestly if it had been me I would have done the same thing. To have 20.20 next to your name is quite and achievement. The fact that it was an error was inconsequential really.

    His time came up on the board as 20.20

    john Reich is a former Michigan All American. Same sort of range as me in college(200,500,mile). I beat him the last few years but it was not there yesterday. His time came up on the board as 20.20 and he took a picture and sent it out to his college coach and friends. He said he always wanted to be a sprinter but like me could only fake a 50.

    i went looking for you but never saw you!

    I saw it on the news, but didn't think much of it. I used your post to warn my kids, as my 12 yr old tends to be friendly. This description has popped up in the past too. Wasn't that long ago (couple months?) that we were wondering "whatever happened to that man in the white van?" Ugh, I hope he wasn't successful before and is now shopping for a new kid!

    Great job for getting out there, Stewart! I wondered if you'd be there or not. You know, at least this is a meet that doesn't count nearly as much as a regular master's meet. And knowing you, you still probably swiped a few gold out of it?

    There were police cars everywhere and it was on the news. I doubt the criminal would come back to our neighborhood. But it's a reminder that bad things can happen anywhere.

    i am sorry it's actually dumb dolphin drill. It's where you put your arms out front pull back like fly and recover them back under the body like breast stroke while doing dolphin kick. It focuses on the pull for fly without bringing the arms over the water.

    that would be awesome. I ate in little Italy both nights I was in town. It was awesome.
