    excuse me sir, but this is MY blog. You are retired now and have the time on your hands to write your own blog.

    Short back story:

    Doug Martin's (yes that Doug Martin of numerous sprint USMS National/World Records) son got Anthony Ervin to come to Little Rock for Doug's birthday a couple years ago (like literally I am told he walked up to Doug's door, rang the doorbell, and was standing there wearing his Olympic medals). It was sort of a weekend festival that got all the swimming community of Little Rock involved. He did a couple clinics (some public, some private), he came and spoke to the UALR college team (that was my last year coaching them). Anyways, I am fairly certain "Ervin" was a set of drills he said he does during practice or before racing or something (I wasn't actually there for the clinic), and to give credit where credit was due, and so the swimmers would always know what set the coaches were talking about, they designated it "Ervin."
