The Youtube button on the control bar, above the message section. Hit the button, copy and past the URL, and voila!! The Youtube clip is embedded.

I remember inquiring about this feature several weeks ago, after spending 10 minutes trying to embed Tom Petty's "Free Falling."

I am going to try it in the near future. I want to have No. 2 son put his 307C on youtube then post it for you guys to see. Bucfan knows the lingo but for those of you who don't, it is a reverse 3 1/2 in the tuck position. Nobody else in the US does it in his age group (16-18) and he did it for 7's last week in Albuquerque.

I don't think it will be too long...unless of course he continues to do well.

It actually would not have surprised me to see him here for just last night, and Gorzzy be brought back up down the road.

Personally, with the great number of options we have for starters, I don't ever see Karstens going back into the rotation.

That is a tough dive and a great score. What is the DD on that dive, Az? I am guessing 3.4.

And for those who do not know much about diving - 50 points on a dive is big. Very big. Az's younger son got 7's on the dive. The middle 3 scores are used for calculating the scoring - throw out the high and low or two highest and lowest, depending on the number of judges.

If a diver gets 21 points from the judges (3 scores of 7.0), that would yield 71 points on one dive, if as I believe the DD (degree of difficulty) is 3.4. That is freaking huge.

It is 3.5 DD. He has the highest DD dive list in the country also.

Rock on, No. 2. 3.5 is scary difficult. Son earned 73 points on one dive. Crimony, that is tough to beat.

Daughter's most difficult dive in terms of DD was a 2 1/2, 1 1/2 on platform. That carries a 3.4.
