    Love the tat talk. Don't have any but I love asking people about theirs.

    I got the tat on my 50th birthday. On my 100th birthday, if I can, I plan to walk into some tattoo parlor somewhere, and ask for a naked woman on my left shoulder. Those will be my only 2 tats - and I do mean tats in this sense.

    I am anti-tats, but I do know for a fact that if I had been an Olympian (ha!), I totally would have exactly that one! I saw it a dec-er (Hardee, I think) and thought 'that's cool'!

    Adding insult to injury, I just received my latest Duke Alumni magazine. In it, is a picture portfolio six Duke Tracksters/Fielders, full page pics of their TATTOOS !

    I think I am getting sick.....

    Every track program should be so lucky as to have a "shack" like the one at TAMU. I have worked a lot of meets in that shack and never got wet. In fact, on most of those days the meet could have been held outside...

    They probably figured no one would be silly enough to run indoors in the South in March!
