I think it was Olin's young wife who was on ESPN a few days later and spoke eloquently about the tragedy. I remember her saying something to the effect of "if you see me at the ballpark and want to give me a hug, go right ahead." There was something really moving about that.
“I tell you what, he got behind that wheel and we took off — we’re barely in the water. We’re doing 74 mph and we jump a wake and that boat felt almost like a wing of an airplane. He scared the (heck) out of me.
I've gone 65 mph in a boat like this in a similar situation - a friend at the wheel - and I don't plan to ever do it again. I distinctly remember calculating that we had roughly a 5% chance of crashing and dying in the next moments. You feel like you're barely touching the water and if you hit a wave wrong - let alone another boat - it's going to be all over.
