    I mean, when you put it that way, it almost sounds sexy.

    No, I didn't.

    Trip: "Let's start on the 30:00, and the set takes 25:50."
    Calvin: "Ok."
    **Approximately 25:50 later**
    Calvin finishes on the 55:41.
    Trip: "You miscounted"

    Numbers don't lie Trip. I can count to eight, ten times. :00, :35, :10, :45, :20, :55, :30, :05, :40, :15

    As soon as my shoulder feels better, I am going to swim the 10x200 and take you out behind the woodshed and beat you like a red headed step child.

    I think they should let us start off the blocks with just the heels in the water. That was the rule in Illinois high school swimming until right before I got to high school.
    Yup. Then when I was in HS they changed the rules. I didn't know and couldn't figure out why the started was telling me my toes had to be below the water line. I begrudgingly obliged. My coach told me after the race.

    Among other benefits it would eliminate the expense of those wedges.
