So I start the year by adding a three-time Olympic gold medalist to my collection.
That, unto itself, is pretty cool.
Made even cooler by the fact that Tracy Caulkins is also a former University of Florida swimmer, so I add another Gator to that collection as well.
As I write this I also realize this is the first swimming autograph I have in my collection. So it's cool on a lot of levels.
Tracy spends a lot of her time in Australia these days, so it took almost a year for her to sign the photos I sent her here in the States and return them to me. Definitely worth the wait though.
249: the number of different autographs I've gotten since starting this blog in January 2010.
