Picture of the Day

Picture of the day comments and upcoming TKOT schedule.

Fuzz: Synchronized Swimming is an interesting event or sport. Whatever the hell you want to call it, it’s just plain strange. It usually involves about 8-10 women in unflattering one- pieces doing crazy leg & arm poses in water. Yet, it looks ridiculously hard. It looks like you have to be coordinated, strong and have the ability to hold your breath for a long period of time. It’s one of those things that the majority of people make fun of, but if they would ever try it, they’d fail miserably. I made a joke a long time ago about it in front of my mother and she told me she did it in high school. Ummm, what?!?!? was my response. They had it as a sport back then? Sure did, she said. Anyways, it was one of those times that you learn something about your parents you’d never guess in a thousand years. I’m sure all of you have these types of stories...

Dogg: I assume this is some sort of synchronized swimming team but could be completely wrong. Anyways, I don’t understand how somebody or a team gets good at this. Don’t you all get hurt when practicing before you know exactly how to perfect the routine? It’s like bikers and skateboarders going up and down the ramps. How do you begin practicing for stunts like that? I have to imagine that a lot of these athletes get seriously injured before perfecting these sports. Whatever it may be, they are talented and would love to attend an synchronized swimming competition. I’m going to push TK on Toast members to attend one in the future.

Q: Fuzz and the rest of his Sartell swimming buddies get together for a nice reunion...

Upcoming TKOT schedule:

Friday: Dogg's Vegas article. Dogg recently went to Vegas--should be good.
Monday: T-Wolves Review/Preview article. Fuzz will be doing the review of the season and Q will be doing the preview of what's to come. Will be posted this weekend for readers that want a headstart.
Tuesday: Picture of the Day.
Wednesday: Lost Rountable. The hit TV show Lost returns next Thursday after a five week layoff. We'll be doing this with a loyal reader that is a Lost fan.
Thursday: Picture of the Day.
Friday: "Voices from a Stranger" from "The Bag." That's right, another first round NFL mock draft article. Draft is next Saturday already!

Fuzz - Being a former swimmer, I can see you are a little bitter that you weren't able to join the sync-swim team.
