Washington Post tries to drum up more support for local swimmers with reachforthewall.com website.  Hyperlocal news is the hip term for these ages and this site provides just that.

Currently hot topic is Nationals and swimmers from the area getting some good coverage. But it is not all national level glory as local swim meets also get some press time in the site.

And now is time to see from the other side of the fence a.ka. was it really that special?

Floswimming reader uprising is starting in the comments of Garret’s post. Now Chris De Santis, who was also one of the “voices” of the site, although his real affiliation with the site has always been bit foggy to me…, gives his two cents on the matter of the Garret’s leaving the site. And nobody has real idea what has happened and what will happen to the site…

And I wonder are we really going to miss something special if shit goes down as everybody is fearing it will? I myself has been visiting Floswimming for long time as stated few posts back but has had nagging feeling that site comes with shiny coating but nothing in the inside.

There are lost’s of videos which include interviews, workouts etc… But what is the information those videos provide us? Most of the coaches talking in those video talk so much shit that sometimes I don’t if I am really looking at professional human being or some cheap impersonators ?

Also everybody is trashing what MSM is asking in it’s swimmer interviews while praising the questions in Floswimming and like god geez, where they really that much different…

And if Floswimming goes down I myself am not feeling that much sadness, past few months have been starting show lots of trolling in the comments and endless cock measuring of best clubs or some other useless shit… That is something I will not be missing that much…

And all this is written while looking at the my personal motto on the wall, “Don’t give criticism if you are not doing anything making things better”. So I know, stop badmouthing… But I do it only out of love…

Take it away, d:ream

I don’t know how many of you have been following Floswimming.com, I myself has been dedicated follower since maybe day 1. When it originally started I am not sure but methinks that I have been visitor since the early days.

Now it seems that everything good must come to a end as Garret McCaffrey, who I believe to be the owner and founder of the site, has posted somewhat cryptic message about his leave from the site.

As of Monday, July 6th, I no longer work for Floswimming. It’s not very easy for me to handle because for 2 years Floswimming has been my life. Disappointment aside, my objective hasn’t changed one bit.

The message is one those crappy ones, no clear reasoning why shit is going down and what the future holds for the site… Sheeet, people are worried here, man…

But if shit hits the than, thank god we have the memories, this must be one the best videos from the site showing dedication and spirit of hard work
