Tom Hampson's friends cheer him on:
Hey Tom, we were surprised to see you in the contest and yet so happy that you're getting your "physical" life back. Your comments are hilarious -- typical you -- a workout being like surviving a "near-death experience." Greek yogurt DOES taste like stomach acid. We're with you on that one! Hang in there, friend. We're rooting for you!
