IT HAD BEEN a long time since I had gotten "wasted" on a Saturday morning, since I had been so totally tuckered out by 2 p.m. that I needed some serious late-afternoon sofa time. It had been a long time, in other words, since I had been to a summer swim meet. I joined the ranks of swim team parents 15 years ago, but in the last two years, I had enjoyed a vacation from this duty. One kid was too old to compete, the other was playing baseball almost every Saturday morning when the meets were held.

The buzz is building over Michael Phelps. The 15-year-old from Rodgers Forge has the sinew and strokes to someday be mentioned with America's swimming legends. In 2004 and 2008, he could collect times and titles worthy of Weissmuller and Schollander, Spitz and Biondi. Right. And wrong. The future is now for Phelps, the man-child who has kept growing, training and presumably improving since a month ago today, when he shocked everyone in Indianapolis except himself and his coach by becoming the youngest member of the U.S. Olympic men's swim team since 1932.

EACH YEAR, teams from Columbia Neighborhood Swim League sponsor individual fund-raisers for charity. For the Phelps Luck team, the event is more than altruistic. It's personal. Bob Baker, father of Kimberly, 12, a swim team member, is director of Special Olympics Howard County, which has its headquarters on Rumsey Road. And, Kimberly's sister, Stephanie, 16, is a member of the Special Olympics Howard County Aquatics Team. Stephanie, a Long Reach High School student, was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Prader-Willi Syndrome, which causes mental impairments, when she was 8. For two years, the Phelps Luck swim team has raised money for Special Olympics Howard County with an all-night swim-a-thon.
