    I’m putting this in the main forum since Dame was practically a lock to be on the roster. He was going to be the first Blazer to make an Olympic team since Clyde. Melo had probably been in his ear telling him what a great experience it is.



    It’s on my bucket list to attend the Summer Olympics in another country. Maybe 2024 in Paris

    That’s too bad. Tokyo would be a great place for the Olympics.

    I just feel so bad for the kids who have been training for years and now it's not going to happen. And this might have been their only chance.

    My life has been wasted. I've been throwing this javelin spear around in the back yard for 8 years, and now this.

    This skill could still be useful in your quest to find Bigfoot in Bellingham
