ouch, that would hurt. I remember getting into top ten for jr. high cheerleaders (teachers voting) but student body narrowed it to six or seven and naturally I lost . Still hurts to this day! (I was never one of the "popular" kids)

As tennis legend Chris Evert Lloyd used to say: The winners are the ones who learn from and recover from their losses!... Looks like you've rebounded just fine, Tania! Smiles for Miles, Gershon
