Just tossing this out for fun...
Jeanie and I were watching hockey on TV today. Blackhawks. The announcer mentioned in passing, that Jonathan Toews's salary was $13.8 milion,
so we looked up salary caps, for different sports. Hmmm... like $200+ million, for Football and Baseball.
I got this dark stare... "So how come?" ... then we looked up Hockey, and Basketball, and auto racing, and then the Womens' leagues in different sports.
Hmmm... "So what happened to swimming?" she asked. There but for "Funny, Fickle,Fate", my chosen sport was passed by. My Regional and National Championships... doomed to be forgotten in time. The Fame and Fortune that might have been... lost forever.
And so, as I wallow in the depths of despair, I wonder if anyone else here was passed by... by the fickleness of fate?
