Greater Love Hath No Sickboy

I am forcing myself off the couch for only the second or third time this weekend to post the first of many thrilling action scenes from the no longer terribly recent USMS LCM Nationals in Indianapolis last early to mid August.
Since then, I have come down with yet another contagion, possibly from the combination of physical exhaustion from my own meet performance added to the immediate mental stress of returning to Pittsburgh to write about novel H1N1's place in the pantheon of pandemic flu viruses, then rewriting about same in a somewhat easier to understand form.
There is a reason why Influenza Viruses for Dummies is not yet a best seller.
In any event, I am hoping to HTFU (thanks to Amanda for the black Livestrong-style plastic bracelet with this written in long form on it, my new mantra) by watching and rewatching the grittiest little world beater the likes of me will ever be privileged to know and freeload off of (with the possible exception of Bobinator, who has fast emerged to tie for first place in the world beater/freeloading by Jim category.)
I feel the vapors coming on.
I feel I must take to the couch again soon, lest I loose upon the world replicated viruses escaping from every natural and recently-created-by-germs orifice in my body.
Without further adieu, I give you....
