Wow! Go Ron! Go Ron's briefs!
But won't you be getting less exercise without the drag created by your baggy trunks?
Yes, it is sort of counter-productive. It's sort of like bowling, the better you get the less you throw the ball! :-)
I once saw a man on the beach in Mexico... he had black Speedo's and a blue t-shirt tucked into it with several gold necklaces... Ron, your picture is so much better and you are super.
