So it all started innocently enough with people being excited about brand new expensive carbon goggles. I mentioned on twitter that I *may* have a bit of a collection going. After posting a picture of just a few of the goggles I had around the house I was accosted by the Kastaway Blog and their photoshoply madness with this…


and later it was implied by my twitter friends that I might be the Goggle Monster mentioned that day on Kastaway…

Picture souce:

well guess what, you got me… I am the Goggle Monster, are you happy now? I live under bleachers and eat lost goggles. It’s true. I know it’s hard to believe, but here’s what I look like in my true form…

make your own monster roaring noises

All I ask is that you don’t treat me any differently just because I happen to be a monster made out of goggles that also happens to eat goggles… my life is hard enough already.

    I heard that UK channel swimmer Nick Adams bought something like 3 dozen goggles in SF on his visit out this summer! You are in good company for goggle hoarding! :)

    Thanks Joel, I thought it would be a fan favorite :)

    Ahh… I've lost 2 pairs in the last week alone. Now I know where they are.
