Morris Harvey Relays,Charleston WV. Freshman season 1975 – After eatting at Shoney’s (typical post-victory fare, back in the day)I got violently ill and had to open the side door of the van while going 70MPH, w/o Coach knowing what was going on. As soon as he sees this ,he begins to pull over quickly.This causes the door to slide closed at 70 MPH (Physics in action!) . My team mates, who had me by the belt, hauled me back in, just as the door went whizzing by head. After Coach quit yelling about me opening the door,I was shunned the rest of the trip for obvious sanitary reasons. Gross. It could have been worse. What if no one was there to pull me away from that door? What if no one ragged me about it for the rest of the year? Ah… those special memories!
