Our Very Own Olympian!
By suncpo on Aug 03, 2009
This week is a particularly exciting one for Stanford University as it hosts the 2009 National Senior Games. http://www.2009seniorgames.org/sports-track-field
You have to be 50+ to compete. I am 40 something and sitting at my desk makes me sleepy.
If you happen to be in the 70-74 category in discus and shot put, and you happen to be my best friend from college's mom, Rita Matz, you just may be one of my heros.
My family is particularly honored to be hosting Mrs. Matz & her daughter, (who also happens to be her coach and a champion in track & field in her own right back in the day) this week. We will be cheering from the sidelines with all our might. The ladies Matz will be staying in the very finest Pepto Pink suite in our home, as ceded by Miss. Thang for the occasion.
Wherever you may be and whatever your feelings on cloud, identity, privacy or respect for information about humans, stop for a moment and give a cheer for Rita Matz, my favorite Olympian.
