Thanks, fbaezer, for setting this up. Do you plan to devise a system for letting us all know periodically how everyone is doing? Watching any of it on tv would require me to get a tv.

Fb was great with updates on past threads like this..

Not only did he do updates, he figured at different points what would have been the best choices back at this stage.

Lot of work.

Will work on the spreadsheet tomorrow.

Douglashuang sent me a blueprint for one on 2004. Works great!

I'm looking forward to this - I always watch swimming (pretending I'm picking up technique points) - I think I'll add a few sports to my ssssscheduuule.

Hmm. Johnboy tucks that nugget under his hat for when the A2K NFL game returns for what I believe is it's 5th season. I hope, of course, that JPB will run it again this season, but if not...

ehBeth, I thought I had started a thread re dolphin kicking newly ok'd in various swimming races, but that seems to be a figment of my imagination.
No wonder no one responded.

Fb, It's easier to order food in a Chinese restaurant; if we order group A, we get free eggroll.

Group A: China Women, USA Men
Group B: Cuba, Italy, Japan
Group C: Canada, Kenya, Ethiopia, Brazil, Greece
Group D: Macedonia, Croatia, Mexico, New Zealand, Pakistan

You said 2 from Group B, but you meant 3, right?

Yo, dude. Are you not going to let the WIFF's play? I know from past posts that you are prejudiced against rednecks from the red clay hollows of Virginia. I will pray for you on Sunday morning if I am not too hung over from drinking moonshine on Saturday night.
My hound, I write ominously, is filing her teeth.
