    Gander is right, he is an asshole (I’m also a person from umich).

    And to Fred, that would be a dolphin kick. If memory serves me correctly, he is about to kick down as his arms come down with the stroke.

    I have to voice the other side on Michael from what some posters wrote. I’ve met him three times, including once in the middle of a crowded resturant. He is a delightful, engaging, warm young man. The celebrity and attention thrust on him at 19 and 20 years old leads many to drugs, booze, etc. He handles his fame well. He is a great kid.
