Flotsam & Jetsam: Good news is that Joe Mueller couldn't stand losing his amateur status, so he resigned before payday. He didn't really need the money anyway. One Sunday he lost a suit during a polo game and it took us ten minutes to bring his money belt up from the about that Cynthia Goyette! broke a world record to qualify for the relay in Japan.
