I have been working off of YouTube and Facebook; I don't know how to work my own blog. My loving wife Tiffany has been doing it all. I just email her, and her she posts it. I can Twitter; that's it.
I'm learning how to work the blog posts now, though. I have to. There's a crazy Fall ahead, and I can't miss a beat. I leave for New York with Chris LaBianco this Friday to check out the venue for Golden Goggles (USA Swimming's version of the Academy Awards) at the Hilton. NBC's Rowdy Gaines will be with us. (We will vlog! Hopefully the HIlton has shower caps.) We see Michael Phelps host SNL on Saturday, and we're conducting clinics for swimmers and Masters in Manhattan/New Jersey/Connecticutt.
Next we head to L.A. to see Byron Davis (National Team swimmer-turned-minister--if one man can bring me back to church after growing up on the grounds of Jim & Tammy Faye Bakkers' PTL, it's Byron.) Hoping to pass Byron the ChangeRing (for more info, check out www.thechangering.com )
In October, we have the Tiburon Mile telecast by FoxSports. I am there soley to document Chris LaBianco's swim in the Blue70 suit. Sometime later in October, I'll be in Charlotte to support SwimMAC's efforts to raise money to increase the involvment of minorities in swimming. In Charlotte, I'll catch up with Cullen Jones, our African-American Olympic swimming star.
November, Golden Goggles. For those in the know, GBK is handling our gifting suite (same company that does the Emmy's, VMAs, etc., etc.)
In December, we've got Short Course National Championships, and there's a whole lot going on inbetween (like someone's big 4-0, and a vacation with the wife--Ed.) I promise the inbetween will be far more interesting that anything else...
The blog is back. Tell your friends...
