Lloyd Blankfein’s Lucky Speedo Takes Home Another W

“This weekend, in a very exciting but non-publicized match at the Southampton Bath & Tennis Club, which is exactly the kind of club it sounds like, Goldman Sachs chief executive Lloyd Blankfein won a charity swim-a-thon. Mr. Blankfein, who is said to have used a very excellent flip-turn to his advantage, swam a pool-conquering 134 laps in one hour, according to a source.” [NYO]

    The weight of Mr. Blankfein’s testes gives him an unfair advantage executing flip turns.

    exactly what kind of club does this sound like?

    Honestly confused as to whether there are racial undertones in this, and whether anyone should be checking their motives

    I’ve done like 1.34 laps in my life – color me impressed.

    -Obviously, I’m not a swimmer.

    “A person at the club said that Southampton Bath & Tennis is private, and cannot be written about.”

    @4 I prefer the term j/off

    134 laps in an hr? Whoa, didn’t have gold-scrot for such an athlete.

    –examining motives (or whatever)

  7. Posted by WSJevons | August 23, 2010 at 5:21 PM

    134 laps X 25M = 3,350M

    WR 1500M = 14:30 -ish

    I smell BS (unless LB can undulate the scrot as to create locomotion).

    @7 the author (of the original article) presumably confused “laps” (down and back) with “lengths” (one time across)

    I’ve conquered 134 laps in an hour before

    Swam? BS!

    Obviously equipped as he is, he just walked.

    @7/8 Might also not be an Olympic-sized pool… although the golden scrot version of a dolphin kick could certainly be a factor.

    @10, Of course! FTW!

    @8, go sharpen your occams razor

    – @7, aka guy who likes to think about undulating golden scrots

    @ 7
    Mens WR 1500 = 14:30ish
    Womens WR 1500 = 15:40ish

    134 lengths in an hour is pretty pedestrian if you at all know what you’re doing. Power to him.

    he was a fat bastard back in the day on the trading floor- amazing if he did even one lap

    Assuming it is a 25m pool, that is 1:47/100m. Not necessarily fast, but I’m guessing that 99% of the people posting here couldn’t crank out 500m.

    @10, how you are confusing Lloyd Blankfein and Tim Tebow, I will never understand.

    I’ve paid for 134 lap dances for some El Paso traders.

    @ 13, It takes 40-50 km / week and freakish talent to swim 14:30 at ages 18 – 26.

    Say his training is 3500 a day for 7 days a week – he is putting in 43% of the distance elite swimmers do.

    Say he there is a linear relationship between performance time and time in the pool. LB is putting in 50% of the work for a 18-26 year old to swim a WR.

    Lloyd is 56 yo and judging by his physique – safe to say that he was using the dolphin scrot.

    @15 Not confused at all. There’s only one man with a scrot amazing enough to sire Tim Tebow.

    I would also love to add that when you do not currently have an insurance policy or you do not form part of any group insurance, you may well take advantage of seeking the assistance of a health insurance broker. Self-employed or people who have medical conditions ordinarily seek the help of a health insurance broker. Thanks for your writing.
