Olympic Trials and the Tavern Burger..

Yep, I'm sitting at the Tavern gulping down a burger and fries while watching the Olympic trials track and swimming competition...and feeling like quite the unworthy-to-be-watching fatty.

Now, I realize that I didn't grow up swimming or running, for that matter, and I have come a long way in both; but to watch these athletes is truly amazing. We are fortunate to be able to participate in our sport at will (with the exception of going to Kona, even then you can hope for a lottery spot) but these athletes are the best in their field and only once in four years do they get a chance to qualify for the Olympics. Four years. If they miss a step, a stroke's over.

My heart goes out to 4th place.

And from another perspective: damn, those swimmers are H-O-T!!! Michael Phelps is awesome, but that Lotche is something else!! He's the whole package...with that killer body and dimples that make you want to...

gotta go, next heat is on!!
