    Nancy is somewhat before my time, but you have no idea how strong, or talented, you need to be to be a world champion.
    Nancy is all female, but very strong. A big 190 pound male friend of my parents met her once at an airport to give her a drive.
    Nancy had one BIG equipment bag, and a BIG suitcase. She didn't give a damn about the airline overweight baggage charges.
    My parent's friend offered to help carry her bags. He tried to lift up and carry along ONE bag for a ways. He couldn't. He tried the suitcase. It was also too heavy for him.
    Much to his great embarrassment, Nancy graciously picked up BOTH pieces at once, and carried them out of the airport to his car.

    … I bet Rossland cheered and rooted like crazy for ol' Nancy when she won the gold olympic medal back in 1968. That's ingratitude for you. What a b….ch.
