Some Ivy League Swim Meet
similar to some seen on The Closet Case Show
Manhattan Cable Public Access [1984-94]

A friend of mine borrowed my camera to shoot a swim meet. I don't know what kind of footage he was trying to get, but I think he's going through his middle-aged crisis, judging from the things he was focusing on. He really didn't get a lot of good swimming footage. But he enjoyed himself a lot, sitting with the Yale cheerleaders and admiring the healthy swimmers. He came back to me beaming, saying that the young folks sure make him feel swell. And no wonder. There's so much to cheer for when swimmers are giving their all for Alma Mater.
