After four years of my boys on swim team, I'm becoming a stroke and turn judge. While it's all very interesting to put into practice all I've learned over the fours years, I figured out something not taught at the stroke and turn clinics- During close scoring meets, judges are unfairly scrutinized, criticized, and are subject to ugly comments.

Tonight I worried a disgruntled coach lay in waiting to jump out at me and claw my eyes out in the parking lot after our team suprisingly pulled off a slim victory after getting out tail kicked to Australia and back last year by the same team.

Next week, I think I'll bring a change of clothing, a wig, and dark sunglasses to wear to my car on the way home in the unlikely event of another win.

Good grief!
