Furman Grad, Sociology major but it was little tougher than Auburn football players had Had three dates with beautiful women the summer of 1978. Did not marry any of em. Never married anybody cause what was available was undesirable and what was desirable was unaffordable. Unlucky in love as they say and even still it is sometimes heartbreaking. Had a Pakistani Jr. Davis Cupper on the Ropes the summer of 84, City Courts, Rome Georgia I've a baby sitter, watched peoples homes while they were away on Vacation. Freelance writer, local consultant, screenwriter, and the best damn substitute teacher of Floyd County Georgia in mid 80's according to an anonymous kid passed me on main street a few years later when I went back to get a sandwich at Schroeders.

Fox and the Beijing Olympics

As I explained in the comment line of goodblog today about the origins of the Olympics and Iraq today; these 29th Olympics also have a connection to my Gaffney High School class of 1971
Charles Foster who at my and My Dad's invitation spoke at Collinsville High School for the 96 Atlanta Olympics is coach of Travis Padgett of the Men's 4x100 meter relays.

Here is a good story from the August 12 Greenville News

At awards ceremony at GHS in 1971 I was just one seat away from Olympic greatness and a legacy that continues. The joke is on me, Iknow; but congrats to Foster and Padgett for gettin there.
