40 Years of Misery!
The Life and Times of Stephen Toll Stragnell

After my failure to gain selection for the United States Olympic Water Ski Team, I decided to try my luck at the slalom for the Winter Olympics. Although I feel I did quite well on the whole, the trials were brutal. Racing against the clock while carrying two small children was unnecessarily difficult.

So, having reluctantly reached the conclusion that I would never make it as a professional athelete, I decided to try my hand at coaching - perhaps this was a way I could earn megabucks. As it happens, I also identified a niche in the professional sports television market - my all-young-female, mud wrestling tag-team, the Atascadero Killer Whales, are on track to win the California state final.

Maybe this will lead to something bigger....
