    Yeah he looked okay for 50 yards, but he would have crashed and burned at 200 yards. Swimming conditioning is totally different than powerlifting.

    Man, when I am at the pool and there are guys swimming in another lane, the waves are quite strong.
    I can't imagine how big they are if Eddie was swimming next to me... I'd probably sink!
