Can I Brag?
This is a picture of my quite handsome godson, Thomas Daniel O'Neill, who just this past week took 7th place in the men's 1500 meter freestyle at the 2006 Junior Nationals swimming competition in Irvine, California. Look at him - he's only 16 years old and his time for a metric mile of swimming was 16:00:18.
His mom and I - who have been friends for the last 33 years - were in the stands cheering him on . . . and Mom was talking to a number of coaches from various universities.
Tommy is going into his senior year of high school and can I say, he is smart, polite, well-mannered young man.
I was joking last night after the awards ceremony- any nice Catholic girls in the vicinity of Long Island, NY?
Congratulations, Tommy - we love ya!!!
