Throwholics gently suggests folks use their real name rather than an anonymous handle. People like to know who they're talking to. But either works. Also, you can use spaces for your username.

While searching for a classic video of one of the hammer greats, I came across this gem and thought I'd share. This throw was the first legal 80' throw of my short weight throw career before moving exclusively to hammer. I fouled an 80' in 2005 at the same venue. December 3, 2006. Findlay, Ohio. I thew 80' from the sling (or push) start (video), and 80'6" from one wind technique. It was the first time an American had thrown 80' since 1998.So long ago!
