yes, his hometown has always been given as Sandy Hook, as I recall.

Apparently, it is indeed over, at least for now.

Trying to play out one's life on camera can't be a healthy way to keep relationships 'real'.
Reality TV ain't what it's cracked up to be, which is why I can't bear to watch it.

As for Jenner, I consider his 8618 in 1976 to be quite exceptional considering the state of training and support that he had in that era.

I saw a heading on an article the other day: "Bruce Jenner was an Olympian." When someone thinks the masses have to be reminded of that ("Hey Johhny Weismuller was an Olympian") then we know which end is up in pop media.

Even worse when all they say is "was an Olympian" rather than "the decathlon gold medalist"

we've been down this road before; Jenner's training/support (by the time '76 rolled around) was close to equal to what anybody has today.

A.K.A. as the world's greatest athlete despite what the talking heads at ESPN would have you believe. The world's fastest swimmer has always been the men's Olympic champion in 100-meter freestyle. The world's fastest runner has always been the men's Olympic champion in the 100-meter dash, despite Michael Johnson's effort to redefine this title after winning double gold in Atlanta. And the world's greatest athlete will always be the Olympic/World Decathon champion IMO, and if any of the studs playing football or basketball want one of these titles, they need to get it the old-fashion way, which is earn it the same way Bob Hayes did before he went off to play in the NFL.

lets just take some time and explore that road... It should be clear that 1 year of training/support (before your PR/WR) is not quite like having 4 to 8 years at that level of training/support.

It is still hard to fathom that nothing has changed in training for the Deca .. in 40 years.

The problem is the Southern CA sun. Fair skinned people go out there and love to lounge around in the noon day rays. The result: by the time they are 40 they look 60 !!... Jenner like all of the wealthy hollywood types, has been using a cosmetic surgeon to smooth out that extra 20 years. The results are to be expected.

That depends on whose wielding the trowel.

Yes on the second note, but Jenner moved to San Jose right after the 1972 Olympics and had 4 years of training. He was working on sprinting with the sprinters in San Jose, and I think lifted with Mac Wilkins and Al Feuerbach, so his training was pretty advanced - and was so for 4 years prior Montreal.

The problem is the SoCal live-forever mindset. Bruce started having structural changes done to his face (not his skin) within a year or so of heading to la-la land.

I was the announcer of the Jenner Classic for more than a decade and he and I used to get together multiple times every year and saw it firsthand. The sun had nothing to do with it.

How would many of us fare if we were to show the changes in our appearance over 40 years?

Just got this tweet:

Dave Barry ‏@rayadverb 37m

That last tweet was specifically about Bruce Jenner's trachea. And if you don't know what I mean, THAT IS MY POINT.

I used the same head-shot for about 20 years, but then I out-smarted myself and shaved my mustache. Now I have a new pic and he looks soooooo old! :D

Then again, maybe it's not over.
