    Lol. Well, real men don't need electronic gizmos to have real fun! ;);););)

    I may resemble some of those comments. :D

    ----

    Seriously, though, I'm flat footed and need to stretch the lateral gastrocnemius regularly anyway. Certainly helps with my style of rolling the foot over and bending the ankle laterally more than just flexing it.


    . I'm just old. Not so sure about old school!;):D

    No wonder I like you Grant, I am flat footed also..........plus I am really impressed you can spell lateral gastrocnemius, left alone rotate it!

    I gotta thank my high school PE teacher. Built and looked a bit like Hulk Hogan. You did what he said. Even if it's to memorize muscle groups! We called him 'King' Jack.

    By the way, since we are off the subject , how did you get the nickname of the Mad Hatter? Heh, this is really not that personal, since I had the distinction of being the Mad Hatter in my famous 6th Grade Acting debut!

    Actually its because I like to wear a big ass hat at the track.... And most people say I'm a little mad so.....

    My previous nickname was Splatter.... but I did not think it was track appropriate!!

    Good thought, MadHat is a better moniker for the track!

    As long as that doesn't mean "angry", you'll be alright. Everybody is a "little mad" sometyme...............
