    Right...how many young T&F fans will relate to the following result from an upcoming DL meet: mLJ Manyonga 8.84?

    Given USATF's record of incompetence, I would expect them to come up with a combined imperial-metric system that is incomprehensible to everyone. I imagine it will be called 'impetric'. Moreover I implore them to change their name to increase interest, perhaps to include "The". Thus, we would have TUSTAF, which one can utter as a seemingly meaningful word.

    Lastly, I would like to apologize to Canada, for posting this in the Canada Day thread, and well, just generally, for other stuff too. I hope you had a good day.

And it should be noted that I grew up in Massachusetts where there are almost as many Dunkin Donuts as there are Tim Hortons in Canada.
    My brother-in-law is going back this October for his 50th reunion from UWO Medical School. The orthopedic surgeon who replaced my wife's knee three month's ago graduated from the UWO Medical School. He wasn't born yet when my brother-in-law was there. Time marches on.
