We heard about the fame, the glory, the bike rides, the hotel rooms, scaring small children, the Barbie Doll Jess never received, the hotel rooms, posting bond, the relays lost because skaters couldn’t count, the relay lost because Robb couldn’t count, the famous wrestling match and third world medical care, wine and women, lost keys and lost books, Amy Ruby’s many contributions to Robb’s coaching career, and so many more. But most of all we heard the love and appreciation everyone has for Robb. Pictures here.
