I drowned and was revived when I was 11. I couldn't swim and got caught in a slight current that pulled me into a deeper area of a large slow river. I was incredibily lucky because a woman noticed my head come up three times and disappear. She pulled me to the shore and administered mouth-to-mouth.
I remember kicking off the bottom to get my head above the water to grab a breath several times, got tired, realized it was pointless and sort of gave up. I remember thinking how comfortable I felt before passing out (very similar to how I've felt when going under for an operation). You are lucid at one moment and not the next.
I've never feared the water since.
From what I've read since, my situation was very typical of drowning victims. Unlike on TV and the movies, people drowning don't wave or scream for help. They bob up a couple of times and then disappear.

As I read this thread I caught the final round and the answer was "the University of Michigan retired a number for this all-American center who played in 1935".

And we got a lot of shit for it. Cooler heads prevailed and changed it back to "University of Michigan". I don't know how official it was or when it was changed back, but I do remember it.

and I'm not sure he actually went to MSU.
Haven't been back in a couple of years as it is just too crowded and loud, but the Phoenix Alumni club is awesome.
