The athlete whose 2008 performance in China is the sole reason my Cooper swims has announced his plans to retire. Boo. I wish he could swim forever. Big M.P., the playboy with the biggest celebrity ears, gets a bad rap in some circles. But I can't help myself, I like him. Watching him that record-setting year was a thrill. It was on one such night that I watched my 2-year-old jump off our ottoman to the sound of the starter's beep onto the carpet and then make motions to swim through the carpet in a clumsy half breastroke-half army crawl. That, it turns out, is how a swimmer is born. Also, The Coop is pretty popular with the ladies, too.
|The look tells all.|
|Again, with the ladies.|
