Sports and Dictatorships

Last night my 7YO son was lying in bed with me, reading his (adult) Sports Illustrated, and he put the magazine down for a moment to have this conversation with me:

W: Mom, my teacher says in some countries you can be arrested for saying the name of the president, like Barack Obama, instead of President Obama. That seems wrong.
Me: Hmmm, well in some countries you can't say whatever you want or disagree with the government.
W: What about sports? Could I read a Sports Illustrated in another country and disagree with the rules in a sport?
Me: Yah well, I'm not sure about that.
W: Because I do NOT agree with the forward progress rule in college football.

Just a little snippet from my 7YO going on 50. He also asked us the other night if we could start playing Farkle "as a drinking game". Hm.

Anyway, workout today:

*warmup: 6 x 100's first and last 2 free, middle 2 back/breast

add paddles for:

*500, 400, 300, 3x100's, 200, 2x100's (I messed this one up while leading :).

remove paddles for:

Stay tuned for the excellent Charlie's Angels shots we took this morning with Tim poolside.
