|Andy (above) and his famous belly flop|
Hey Paul & Ian,
My name is Ed Smith and I actually used to go to High School with Andy Kaufman at Great Neck North High. Go Goats! I know most of your viewers who get put in the website found Andy somewhere in the world, but I actually knew Andy before he moved to the city. Andy and I were on the Great Neck Aquatics Team together (swimming and diving)
What I remember about Andy was he took ruining our sport so seriously. He would come to every meet, and take as many events as he could (even some he was not scheduled to be in). He would demand to swim women, which maybe prompted his wrestling idea? When he would dive, would only belly flop, then argue the score.

I attatched some xerox copies of some yearbook photos for you to check out. If you can use them on your website you are more than welcome to.
