Lighting Up the Room....Then Leaving...

BNThere's a great scene (among a plethora of great scenes!) in the 1987 movie classic "Broadcast News" wherein Tom Grunick (William Hurt) accuses Jane Craig (Holly Hunter) of "Lighting up a room...then leaving." Craig had just burst into his office amid a wonderful barrage of profanity and accusation aimed at Grunick, only to discover that Grunick's terminally straight-laced father was present.

It was clear that records were going to fall almost immediately after Race Director Jeremy Sartain announced "3-2-1 Go!" The racers skimmed through the short and shallow .3 mile swim and seemed to be entering TI before becoming completely wet. Thaddeus Ingersoll covered the swim course in a breakneck split of 4:25. David Thompson, Devon Palmer, Kevin O'Connor, and Matthew Payne appeared closely in his rear-view mirror in the men's elite race heading into TI.
