Should we be cursing underwater in our races?

I knew it! It's not bad manners, it's pain management. :censor::banana:

I have a friend,a backstroker,who in the 100 IM came in for the back to breast turn and turned to his stomach.Realizing his mistake he continued to turn back to his back and as his face came up he exclaimed loud enough for most to hear"OH :censor:" Amazingly he was not DQd and another friend told him"the turn judge was the only one in the building who missed that."

I curse underwater on any morning when I dive in and the water's colder than I want it to be ... which is pretty much any morning here in Arizona from mid-September to mid-June. It's like an extra shot of espresso to get me going.

I did the same thing for opposite reasons, when I returned to our community pool, after it had been closed for 21/2 weeks for repairs. After training in a 78-79 degree pool during that period (:ohyeah:), I uttered a much too loud ":censor:", when I jumped into our 85 degree community pool.

Yeah, Elaine, that reminds that from mid-June to mid-September here, I usually curse the hot water in our pools ... so it's a year-round morning tradition for me.

Last season I did this a few times. If I recall correctly, it was in the 200 Fly, and something like:

"Oh :censor:, this is starting to hurt.

Oh :censor:!! Here comes That Guy...

Oh :censor::censor:!!!! ... there goes That Guy!!"

Not to be repeated in the coming fall season...:bolt:

HS conference championships: Guy on our squad steps up for the 50 free. The starter says, "quiet for the start". The natatorium goes quiet. "Take your mark" Then someone's camera shutter goes "click click click". Our guy rockets off the block and hollers "Oh S..." with the bleeped part obscured by his splash. No false start was charged and the starter read the riot act to the crowd. I forget our guy's place, but I am sure it was top 6, he went a 22-low.
