Seriously off topic...

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
So I'm sitting here at a bar in Toronto trying to win a bet concerning Ben Johnson and his drug induced track records, and I pull up this article about a Brian Cooper at McNeese State. Boots...is this you?!! http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/vau...6960/index.htm

Yep Kevin that would be me. I used to run track and field professionally back in the day. Dude thats a blast from the past article. Yea Ben Johnson was a cheater back then as well as some others. I'm glad he finally got caught and that was the only way he could beat me. In the indoor season, he only beat me by thousands of a second if that tells you how fast I used to run. After his ban when he was allowed to returned, he no longer could beat me or others. He then was caught again using ph drugs and was banned for life. Thats what you get for cheating.

Now go collect your money.

If I remember right, in another thread awhile back you referred to Jim Brown as your cousin and I wondered if you were kidding...guess not. He was arguably the greatest football player ever and a seriously fast dude, especially for his size. Looks like you were even faster. Man you've got some good genes in your family.

That has to be with track shoes, I am sure with boots on it would only be like 5 seconds.

I don't think this was a fair race. Boots' boots gave him a traction advantage. I am sure he would have lost on a course with turns!

Awesome.3.7 I'm as fast as our cars. Wrsbmw that was w/ boots on. LOL

I ran 4.12 twice in the 40y dash for the Dallas Cowboys in 88 and that was w/o the comp package.

Mike yes, Jim Brown is my cousin. I was serious. He was one of the all timers in football. I was just as good in football and baseball. But track and field was my calling.

Hell yea drew. If a curve came up he would have fallen down. Advantage gone.

Seriously thanks guys. I did have a good career running and enjoy watching the lil ones compete now. If I were to get back out there I would need that competition package just to get me out the starting blocks!

DrKev: You crazy boy. Thanks

Kamil is holding up the glass, but I hold it up for all of you guys who make this forum a place where we can cheer on each other and appreciate what we all have accomplished in our lifes. We have serviceman like Dave who flew. I cant do that as I would be scared. But I would shoot down a mferrr in a quick minute. Have no problems doing that. lol I spend 12 years in the Police Department so to me that was my service to my country. Then you have DrKev, who you guys probably don't know who is a accomplished Dentist with his own practice. All of these professions take skill. Anyhows, Appreciate all the kind words. I'll find a pic to post up here or a short vid clip as I never had put any of my races on youtube.

DrKev, Hell Naw. They bring what they got and drive. I ain't no driving no ms daisy..lol

Signed

Sir Boots

Yeah, but with Boots, he'll eat some Mexican food for a louder exhaust.

Wow, what a small world. I ran for SLU in hammond, La. back in the day. Although my last season competing as a sprinter was '86, I graduated in '87. I competed against another McNeese state guy whose last name I can't recall but I think his first name was Brian as well...could be wrong(long time). I followed track for a bit after I graduated and remeber Brian(boots) kicking some serious butt back then.
