    The Beijing Olympiad officially has its sentimental favorite. Eric Shanteau is putting off surgery until after the Olympics. I just hope that decision doesn't come back to haunt him.

    Damn. I'll echo what you said, 2mcm, considering his doctors are telling him to have surgery now. I wonder how he's going to monitor the cancer's growth/non-growth in China and throughout the training regimen. It's obviously not something you want to screw with.

    I understand this is a lifelong dream and he may never get another shot.

    But the man is 24 years old and he's risking his life if this spread. There are few worse ideas than fucking around with getting cancer treated.

    I love how around here seniority gives you the leeway to abandon decorum.

    This reminds me of the story I read not just a week or so ago about the Chinese high diver that could go blind performing. The guy already has retina damage and moving one centimeter the wrong way could permanently remove his eyesight.

    Bullshit. I was talking like that when I had 20 posts.

    Point is, a thread about a 24-year-old battling testicular cancer is not the place to make a stupid joke about a 41-year-old woman. Especially if you're not smart enough to get the name right.

    When you're a 20-game winner you can have fungus on your shower shoes.
