Chris Humbert, cover boy and U. Olympic water polo star, went straight outta Lodi and splashed into Life magazine. His mother, Cindy, the assistant city attorney in nearby Stockton, was warned by her son about the cover shot, in which he and three teammates are wearing water polo caps and nothing else, each holding a strategically placed water polo ball. We can get some publicity here. In that respect, he was like another famous left-hander with a temper, John McEnroe. Humbert has led the United States in scoring in every major international competition since but if he was pushed over the brink, the team usually would follow. It took several talks--with everybody. You have to keep a poker face and you have the opportunity to get even without being seen, underwater.

For Terry Schroeder, who was the model for the male statue, they represent 60 hours of awkward posing and relentless teasing from his teammates on the United States water polo team. After thinking the initial phone call was a prank, Schroeder posed naked for the sculptor Robert Graham. Inheriting a program so dysfunctional that it had its funding cut by the United States Olympic Committee for lack of performance, Schroeder, 48, has molded the Americans into a winner. They entered the Olympics ranked ninth in the world and with modest expectations. When Schroeder took over the team, he was its fourth coach in four years and knew it needed an immediate adjustment.
Print E-mail Letter to the editor. I f the walls of the Intramural Sports Building could speak, I guarantee they would have a few words to say about a certain men's water polo club that meets in its pool every week. I know I do. My story of the water polo club is not meant to elicit sympathy or repulse you to the point that you refuse to swim in the IM Building's pool ever again. Instead, it is my intention to simply inform you of a long standing tradition at the pool - a tradition whose existence I know you will second-guess. This water polo club is that weird. I had worked as a lifeguard for the Department of Recreational Sports at the University for three semesters before signing up for the Friday afternoon shift at the IMSB pool during the spring semester. The three semesters had been fairly typical of most lifeguard jobs involving a couple bloody noses and a few instances of helping to apply flippers to an elderly man's feet. The semesters were nothing short of ordinary. The club calls itself the Flounders.
Sign up. Report problem with this ad. Jan 23, pm. So I'm listening to Petros and Money here in So. I texted him saying that I've been on numerous club, high school, and college BYU swimming and water polo teams and almost without any exception we showered with our bathing suits on. It didn't really make sense to take the suit off since we were already wet from the pool and we had to rinse the chlorine out of the suit and said chlorine off our bodies always smelled of chlorine anyway, btw. He responds on air to my text saying his high school water polo players always showered together naked. I called B. Any water-sports guys know of any team anywhere that showered naked with each other in the locker room showers?
