...Buddy Belote was the same fellow I wrote about on this website a couple of years ago whose daughter, 15 year old Melissa, became this nation's "Sweetheart" when in the 1972 Olympics she was hailed as the world's geatest swimmer, winning 3 Gold Medals.

She received more than 200 a day of ones like that for over a year.
