Sean Connery/James Bond used this move, a double move actually, on Bambi and Thumper in "Diamonds Are Forever". Who would have thought that a James Bond movie could serve as a triathlon training video?

Long story short, Wilson and Montgomery Aquatic Centers were/are closed for 2~3 weeks in the midst of the training peak for fall triathlons. The same crowds from HP who flooded "my" WAC waters when HP was closed is now "feeling the love" from their closed-out neighbors from the North.

Which leads me to ask: why can't we all get along? Well, because The MAN didn't stagger pool maintenance schedules -THAT'S Why!!! Worlds are Colliding, Arms are Entangling, and - thus -Tempers are Flaring. It's enough to make you Sick, or a Triathlete -- your choice.

Which leads me to this conclusion: It Is What it Is. The Mantra of the Urban Triathlete honing his/her Craft in an Unforgiving Environment...

The pool was so crowded yesterday that people did run bricks by hopping on the backs of swimmers congesting the lanes.

-- do the pose before you get into the water and everyone will stay away from your lane. If someone decides to get into your lane after you have gotten in, do the pose half way into the swim. It's a more gentle and civilized way of getting your point across without resorting to violence.

This is how we roll in 'Nam and the Mekong. You Americans have much to learn about the old ways of the orient.
