This is the third time in a row we complain about that airhorn sound. Please remove it.
Thanks 🙏

Does it make your dog lose its mind or something?

I don’t even notice it half the time, and when I do, it’s always funny.

That’s just your opinion, man.

I find it whimsical and goofy, my two favorite things. (And I just wanna know why removing the sound can be your business, but me wanting it to stay cannot be my business? Very unfair.)

The review of the review that no one asked for:
-agree with the group that most are looking in the rear view mirror trying to catch their old music. The Aussies mentioned are definitely closer with Mack 3rd place time at Trials still would have medaled in Tokyo. Margalis has been dating Nic Fink for a long time and he is going to GT grad school so I assume that is the natural fit here and assume he is training there too? Lastly, where is Ryan Held training? Did I see somewhere that he is at ASU?

-i think the young guns will be on fire in Paris. Braden, Titmus didn’t have to have a medal to have a… Read more »

On your second points about Sunwoo training for the 2IM and it potentially taking away from his freestyle – I know for a fact Dressel and the Florida pros do a TON of IM training. Dressel talks frequently about how the other three strokes help his freestyle. I don’t think it’s necessarily a tradeoff between IM and freestyle; they can help each other.

I’m into this “Pardon the Interruption” format – these have become quite entertaining as Coleman and the gang have gotten more reps.

Ooh, is that how you say Bronte Campbell’s first name?

Bron-TUH and not Bron-TAY.

And then we get “wonder kind” so maybe I’m not taking cues on pronunciation from Coleman. (I assume he learned it from a podcast I still am <3)

I think it’s more of an accent thing than a “correct” thing.

For example, I just watched a video about “Bronte Beach” in Australia, and it was pronounced “Bront-ee.”

Welp guess it’s sorta just like a “choose your own adventure” kinda deal so I’m gonna go with “Bront” in my head for now on. (Pronounced the same way you would “turnt.”)

About Coleman Hodges

Coleman Hodges

Coleman started his journey in the water at age 1, and although he actually has no memory of that, something must have stuck. A Missouri native, he joined the Columbia Swim Club at age 9, where he is still remembered for his stylish dragon swim trunks. After giving up on …
