How?

Anyone who has been doing this sport for any amount of time I’m sure gets asked a lot of questions.  These questions pretty much fall into the standard categories of questions: who, what, where, when, why, and how.  The who, when, and where are usually pretty easy to answer (Me. 9/11 – 21 days.
