I told a coach at practice that someone would have posted about the G2 commercial that juxtaposed swimming with pro basketball (!!). But apparently not.

The website had more information in a bio video (http://www.missiong.com/video/Kevin-Crowe-Swimmer). Out of curiousity, does anyone know if Kevin Crowe is a Masters swimmer, or "free-lance"? Recognize the outdoor pool being used?

I wondered what his swimming experience was.He is certainly a better swimmer than one usually sees in commercials.

From the Gatorade People:

Kevin Garnett, NBA with Kevin Crowe,
Sherman Oaks, CA.

Kevin Crowe, 46, was selected based on
the adversity he overcame after losing
his job twice in one year. Kevin changed
his life priorities while still making it a
goal to dive into the pool each morning.
Swimming helped him find his inner‐
strength and balance to conquer each
day.

I saw the ad on TV - and call me a geek... but I thought it was so cool!

Had to laugh about the "I have never used backstroke as a coping mechanism".

Ha Ha - between all of us...
I NEVER liked backstroke until I needed a coping mechanism!

I am one of those people who often appreciates an ad or marketing piece for the message -
Ask me what the product was the next day and I might not be able to tell you!

I'm a total Cytomax Tropical Punch girl, but I'll always have a softspot in my heart for Gatorade.
