A Joyful Journey

100th Post August 20, 2008

This is my 100th post since blogging on wordpress and I thought it would be appropriate to have something related to the Olympics. You can read the story of Eric the Eel on Wikipedia here. The quick of the story is that in the year 2000 Eric competed in an Olympic qualifying race that was set up as a wild card entry for those countries who didn’t have the same resources as others. In the qualifying race two of the three competitors false started and Eric simply had to swim the race to get into the Olympics. Enjoy the race.
