That story took place in 2005 in North Carolina. So, imagine my surprise this week when Jesse walked into the gym here in Atlanta and sat down on the bike next to me. I was so startled I dropped my water bottle at his feet.

Now, before you start getting all starry-eyed and imagine this as the beginning of the next chapter of my romantic life, I can assure that he’s married now. I just had to tell somebody, though, because I couldn’t tell him that he’s the unknowing bystander in one my best/worst stories about being the underdog in my own imagination. One of these days, I’m going to learn how to play the game right.
