While I was on my high school swim team some poor, poor underclassman thought it would be funny to put a huge gob of icy hot in my speedo.

He was wrong.

have to share this quick and painful story...

I was having hip flexor pain coming into my second marathon a number of years ago...and had the "brilliant idea" to take Icy Hot with me in case the pain was killing me in the race.

So, at around mile 13, I popped the cap and squeezed way too much into my sweaty hands and went for it.

In about 1 minute, the worst fire erupted in my pants..tears streaming down my face. Spectators wondering "why is that guy crying?"

Probably burned for at least another 8 miles..until of course the "wall" pain overrode the Icy Hot pain.

Well, that was the end of Icy Hot ideas.

I don't mean to laugh at your misfortune, but...hahahahaha! That's hilarious. I can't even imagine your misery!

I honestly almost had to give up on my long ride today, it burned for a good 20 minutes.

Reminds me of the time after an epic Oly which featured all kinds of physical distress including really nasty chafing from some ill-fitting tri shorts, when I reached in the bathroom for what I thought was Vaseline to sooth my raw skin, and, in my post-race/heat exhaustion daze, managed to apply my friend's Himalaya (herbal icy-hot type stuff sold in Singapore). Screamed so loud that Housekeeping actually came to the door to see what was going on!

We stayed at the University of Victoria in the summer of 94 for a test event meet at the new pool for the Commonwealth Games (where Kieren Perkins set 2 world records and the same pool hosted 2006 Pan Pacs when the new pool build in Vancouver was postponed indefinitely). We were in single dorms and some dick put tiger balm on our doorknobs... needless to say I cam back dropped my swim bag in my room and went to pee, ouch does not begin to describe it.

College girlfriend's grandfather.

Dentures.

Family vacation (I went with).

BenGay smells a LOT like toothpaste, apparently.  

Took a while to figure out what he was hooting about (tougher, as he'd removed his dentures!).  Still makes me laugh…  Laughing

Yup I feel your pain. That is one mistake I will never make again!
