Presidential Fitness Challenge

Bobby Hill had to do the Presidential Fitness test today, which of course led me to find the requirements to pass that son of a bitch.

Sit ups in one minutes: 55
Shuttle Run: 8.7s
V-Sit Reach: +7 inches
One-Mile Run: 6:06
Pull-Ups: 13

I now have a new goal in life. The best part? You can still get awards

Sit and reach and shuttle run would kick my ass. I'd pull a hammy.

joe on Sunday, April 29, 2007 at 9:53 PM

American dad, great line from a bar:

"can i borrow a quarter to call my mom to tell her i just met the woman I want to nail in the bathroom."

Awesome

New York is going to ban metal bats in high school. I agree with banning them in D-1 college games, but banning them in high school is dumb.

Next parents will complain when the wood bats start beaking and little Tommy gets a splinter.

Sounds like wiffleball will be taking place of baseball in New York area highschools very soon.

Barry on Monday, April 30, 2007 at 11:21 AM

the debate this morning on maxim radio: is it ever ok for a man to cry at a movie. joe, thoughts?

Wrecking Crew on Monday, April 30, 2007 at 11:27 AM

So it's officially Derby Week, the greatest thing Louisville has to offer, and it's time to start planning for a party. It probably will be the standard fare from most Sci gatherings...Joanna and I will provide the meat (burgers/ hot dogs/brats and the like). We will also be providing Gin Bucks and Mint Juleps (as long as I can still stomach bourbon). Cuban, I believe Joe nominated you for queso. Joe, I nominate you for meatballs or shrimp (or talk Mom into making us some stuff). Wes if you and Abby show up could you bring your nearly world famous boneless chicken wings. Jay and Marc you all always manage to scrounge up some good dessert type stuff to bring. Anyone else (Brock, Phil, Adrian, Lynnie if you still read this, and whoever I left out) is more than welcome to bring something...beer, non-alcoholic bevarage, some other food. Hopefully it will be a long day of drinking, gambling, and corn-hole.

Wrecking Crew on Monday, April 30, 2007 at 11:29 AM

Haven't we already had this conversation before, BArry?

Brian's Song and Pride of the Yankees are about the only one's I can think of unless you include Con Air.

Barry on Monday, April 30, 2007 at 11:45 AM

might have don't remember. I say absolutley no. though I probably wouldn't call anyone out if it were schindler's list or something. But if you wimper at charlotte's web, you're just a pussy.

Cuban on Monday, April 30, 2007 at 11:53 AM

Barry,

What about a small whimper if it leads to you being veiwed as sensitive, and therefore leads to some sweet love making?

Cuban on Monday, April 30, 2007 at 11:54 AM

I'll make Queso

Barry on Monday, April 30, 2007 at 12:55 PM

i'll accept that as a caveat

Barry on Monday, April 30, 2007 at 12:57 PM

and since I did it myself (though I was 6) its also ok to cry when Goose dies in top gun.

Barry on Monday, April 30, 2007 at 1:06 PM

for those with children

Bigworm on Monday, April 30, 2007 at 1:22 PM

Chris - if Abby and I make it we will bring those nearly world famous boneless chicken wings.

jen on Monday, April 30, 2007 at 2:40 PM

Happy birthday to Al Pacino, 67, Renee Zellweger, 38, and Brock.

Marc on Monday, April 30, 2007 at 3:32 PM

Yup, HAPPY BIRTHDAY BROCK. Jay and I will sing a couple '80s songs as tribute to you. (this will take place at Derby, I'm told)

jen on Monday, April 30, 2007 at 4:22 PM

I hope it doesnt rain this weekend. I read that it was supposed to every day this weekend.

Jay on Monday, April 30, 2007 at 4:25 PM

I cried when optimus prime died in transformers. I was 7.

Jay on Monday, April 30, 2007 at 9:52 PM

Okay, I always knew it, but Peter and Hiro are badasses.

Phil on Monday, April 30, 2007 at 9:57 PM

When I was walking to Flanagan's a group of "urban" youths were across the street. A couple of the younger ones yelled something at me and I believe someone chucked a small rock in my general direction.

So I turned to see wtf was going on, and the biggest one smacked the kid in the back of the head and said "show some fucking respect."

So the little buddy yelled out "Excuse me sir, can I have your wallet."

Bigworm on Monday, April 30, 2007 at 10:32 PM

Heroes was awesome tonight and yes Xota, Peter, Hiro and Sylar are all badasses! I really want to see the Sylar vs. Peter fight!

joe on Monday, April 30, 2007 at 11:03 PM

Is it ok to cry when the kid dies in Hardball w/ keanu reeves or when kevin costner plays catch w/ his dad in Field of Dreams?

On Phil's comment about show some respect, I was umping 7th and 8th grade middle school and I was getting pissed because the game sucked so after every foul ball I would throw the ball back to the pitcher myself harder and harder every time. The catcher turned and asked where I play high school ball. Apparently I am 17 or 18 years old still.

But after the game a parent walked up to me and asked if I was Mike's son. He said he played ball w/ mike and larry and they were legends. My response, "they still are."

Larry, Larry, Larry, Larry......B-mac's dad's here another round of tequila!!!

Jay on Tuesday, May 01, 2007 at 9:32 AM

They are still legends. Phil-I don't know what to say. Wes-Hell yes. I know it was kind of cheesy, but I liked the whole fire and ice thing they did briefly last night.

Jay on Tuesday, May 01, 2007 at 9:40 AM

I just got an email saying that i'm being credited 6 cents for an overpayment on my godaddy account. Sweet!

jen on Tuesday, May 01, 2007 at 11:35 AM

that's exciting! what will you buy?

Jay on Tuesday, May 01, 2007 at 12:26 PM

There was a disclaimer that I couldn't get cash for it, so it just goes back into my godaddy account.

Brock on Tuesday, May 01, 2007 at 1:07 PM

Are you going to actually put a website up for the band or just pay for the domain name?

Jay on Tuesday, May 01, 2007 at 2:41 PM

I don't know. Our IT guy *cough* Adrian *cough* hasn't had time to work on it. As soon as he gets some spare time, hopefully it will be up.

Jay on Tuesday, May 01, 2007 at 3:08 PM

This thursday, Spiderman 3 is premiering. There are shows at stonybrook at 12:05 and 12:10 if anyone is interested.

jen on Tuesday, May 01, 2007 at 3:37 PM

no work Friday, Jay?

Barry on Tuesday, May 01, 2007 at 4:09 PM

jay, i think i just saw sylar's long lost twin in front of the union. dude looked just like him, i thought about saying something to him, but I was afraid he'd cut my skull open.

joe on Tuesday, May 01, 2007 at 5:29 PM

interesting day at work today. Guy claimed loss of use/organ. Needing to clarify this I called the guy asking clarification and go figure, erectile dysfunction. Guy goes on tell me how it ruined his last marriage and that it isn't full erectile dysfunction but it gets hard but doesn't always stay hard and on and on and on. I said I had enough information to complete his claim after he said ED. Apparently he just wanted to share the rest. At least this guy I called was still alive.

Jay on Tuesday, May 01, 2007 at 5:33 PM

I decided to take off friday for spiderman 3. And derby. Barry, apparently all you have to do is stab him, unless he already absorbed the cheerleader. Then you're screwed.

Jay on Tuesday, May 01, 2007 at 6:29 PM

My students are taking there final right now.

douglas on Tuesday, May 01, 2007 at 6:34 PM

jay and marc, i was in tampa last week drunk at a bar and i yelled at the band to play free bird, and they fucking played it on the spot. so just like joe has officially been replaced as my favorite band ever until you nut up and play bon jovi and free bird upon request

Jay on Tuesday, May 01, 2007 at 6:56 PM

Sorry, that's not how we roll, douglas.

Cuban on Tuesday, May 01, 2007 at 10:14 PM

Jay,

Stay strong and don't play play want douglas wants. The band played it because douglas was drinking margharitas with a gay umbrella in it and the band thought they could take him home that night.

Brent on Tuesday, May 01, 2007 at 10:38 PM

In Ving Vang, Laos right now and it is fucking awesome...a huge party town where you go tubing and drinking on the river complete with 40 foot swings, jumps, and ziplines. Its amazing I didnt fall and break my neck yesterday b/c all the beers are double deuces and the alcohol % is a little higher but after 6 or 7, they just feel like 12 oz cans...have fun at derby!

Phil on Tuesday, May 01, 2007 at 11:16 PM

Holy fuck, at trivia today we were joking about you being in Laos.

Glad to see your ass is still alive.

joe on Wednesday, May 02, 2007 at 12:04 AM

holy fuck this TV and surround sound w/ smackdown is fucking awesome.

Bigworm on Wednesday, May 02, 2007 at 9:15 AM

Alright, Reggie is back in his lake.

Of course, if they catch him they will take him to the L.A. Zoo....that has got to suck.

Happy Birthday to the Rock, 35.

Brock on Wednesday, May 02, 2007 at 11:40 AM

Whitewater rafting was a blast this past weekend.

It was college weekend and they provided all you can drink beer from 4-10pm and they have a bar at the campground. It was like PHT all over again, except I was old and the chicks were still the same age.

Beer Olympics was the greatest idea I have ever seen. Beer-chugging relays, spin on a bat and chug beer relays, cherry-pie eating contests where any girl who competed didn't have a cherry, so she would just lap up the entire pie.

The bar even had a band later that night along with some kind of impromptu "girls-gone-wild" episode.

I think it was an excellent idea to take the interview at Vandy the following Monday.

Brock on Wednesday, May 02, 2007 at 12:57 PM

Crossfade and the Villebillies are playing at Phoenix Hill on Friday starting at 7PM. Anyone interested?

Jay on Wednesday, May 02, 2007 at 2:51 PM

How much is it? Is it just with general admission?

Brock on Wednesday, May 02, 2007 at 2:55 PM

$15 I think

Bigworm on Wednesday, May 02, 2007 at 3:25 PM

Jay - Do you know if there is an electronic copy of the TSCA Chemical Substance Inventory? I am looking for chemical listing numbers.

Jay on Wednesday, May 02, 2007 at 4:14 PM

Not that I know of.

adrian on Wednesday, May 02, 2007 at 4:44 PM

DURP! Heroes is so cool DURP!

Bigworm on Wednesday, May 02, 2007 at 4:53 PM

Okay, think of the most flamming individual you can, what they look like and how they act. Now double that person and compare that queer to Adrian.

Who is more gay?

Cuban on Wednesday, May 02, 2007 at 5:12 PM

Adrian

But only by a little.

Jay on Wednesday, May 02, 2007 at 5:12 PM

That's the gayest person I've ever seen!

Marc on Wednesday, May 02, 2007 at 5:45 PM

Phil, good news...kinda. Studio 60 will return to NBC (well the last 6 episodes will but they will change nights to Thursday. So that means it they don't get decent ratings the first night back they might get dropped. so be warned.
http://tv.ign.com/articles/784/784663p1.html

Phil on Wednesday, May 02, 2007 at 6:01 PM

Luckily it looks like Nielson ratings taking into consideration the DVRs will slightly help shows like The Office, Studio 60 and Friday Night Lights. Your "higher" educated professions with shit to do are far more likely to watch those shows, but are also more likely to not watch them live. It's shows like "Grey's Anatomy" where you have your bored housewives and their captive husbands being forced to watch the show do so live because 1) they are DVR less and 2) have all the time in the world to spend watching TV that kick ass in the ratings.

But even still, there are a lot more stupid people that'd rather watch shows like "Ow my balls" than watch a show that actually tries to develop characters and plot lines, so I think I should just be resigned to the fact that any show that I like will probably be canceled within 2 years.

Bigworm on Wednesday, May 02, 2007 at 8:12 PM

What can you say, people like dick and fart jokes and other knee slapping nonsense for their shows.

Friday Night Lights is one of the best shows on TV but will probably be dropped. 24 is awesome, but I DVR it because of HEROES!!!!

Brock on Wednesday, May 02, 2007 at 9:51 PM

Idiocracy was a pretty decent flick.

Jay on Thursday, May 03, 2007 at 9:11 AM

Phil, there are shows out there can have dumb humor, and still develop characters. Not many though.

Cuban on Thursday, May 03, 2007 at 10:06 AM

Nope not to Marc's brother. Some Radiologist in Lebanon, KY called me today at like 9:00 am to buy for his teenage son. Apparently, his 16 yr old son's dream car is a silver mustang with black interior....wierd.

Bigworm on Thursday, May 03, 2007 at 4:04 PM

NCAA is moving the 3 point line back 1 foot, I believe to 20'6", isn't this the same as international play?

Brock on Thursday, May 03, 2007 at 4:21 PM

International is 20'9", they intentionally didn't make it the same.

Bigworm on Thursday, May 03, 2007 at 4:54 PM

sorry college was 19'9" and moving back to 20'9" so they are making it the same. I though it was 19'6" at first, my bad.

joe on Thursday, May 03, 2007 at 8:25 PM

you know what is nice, getting off work at noon because of a parade

joe on Thursday, May 03, 2007 at 9:14 PM

Is this heaven, no it is Joe's house. I have no reason ever to leave my house again. My work here is done. I think the whole bachelor pad thing has peaked. TV in HD is set up and the X box is HD and I have the entire surround sound hooked up and every room is set up now. I have a DVD player w/ a surround sound system in 4 rooms, a tv w/ a DVD player in 5 rooms, wireless internet, 2 gas grills and so on.

1)VFW must not pay too poorly huh?
2)Maybe I should move back to louisville

If you move Barry, who is going to teach us how to wrastle crocs and drive fanboats?

Joe -- so they dont let you guys off work for Good Friday, but they let you out early for a parade? Crazy.

Bigworm on Friday, May 04, 2007 at 9:39 AM

Brock makes a very valid point. Wraslin' crocs and learing to drive a fanboat is on my list of thigns to do before I croak.

Brock on Friday, May 04, 2007 at 9:46 AM

That's what happens when you work for a bunch of pagans... or the gov't.

Brock on Friday, May 04, 2007 at 9:47 AM

Is anyone planning to do some dual celebration tomorrow since its Derby AND Cinco de Mayo? Tequila shots chased with Mint Juleps? I sense a wicked hangover.

jen on Friday, May 04, 2007 at 10:09 AM

that just sounds scary. I wanted to go to the derby but the shitty weather is just going to get worse.

Wrecking Crew on Friday, May 04, 2007 at 10:24 AM

So I think we have a ton of food and booze for this thing tomorrow. We will have part of a keg coming as well as the 3, 1.75L of bourbon and 2.75L of gin. Brock, that idea sounds absolutely foul.

Wrecking Crew on Friday, May 04, 2007 at 10:28 AM

Anybody doing anything tonight? Joe and I are going to the Godsmack concert, and if anyone is out and about, let us know. A concert and Derby is such a great way to start a vacation.

Brock on Friday, May 04, 2007 at 11:01 AM

How do you get "part" of a keg?

Brock on Friday, May 04, 2007 at 11:03 AM

Jay, any interest in that Crossfade concert at PHT?

Wrecking Crew on Friday, May 04, 2007 at 11:08 AM

You get part of a keg by having one donated from a party last weekend that wasn't finished.

jen on Friday, May 04, 2007 at 11:08 AM

I think it's when someone else drank the first part.

Cuban on Friday, May 04, 2007 at 11:16 AM

Chris,

What kind of beer is in the keg?

Brock on Friday, May 04, 2007 at 11:25 AM

So its more like a "sloppy-seconds" keg.

jen on Friday, May 04, 2007 at 11:52 AM

I think so.

I'm off at noon today for Oaks.... wooo hooo! 6 minutes!

Bigworm on Friday, May 04, 2007 at 11:58 AM

Chris - Abby and I are going to try to make it over on Derby, however, we are celebrating my father's 54th birthday on Derby so might not have Abby's nearly world famous boneless chicken wings, or faux wings as I call them.

adrian on Friday, May 04, 2007 at 12:19 PM

Jay on Friday, May 04, 2007 at 12:36 PM

Adrian-that f'ing sucks. That pay is awesome though. Brock- I might, however, I'm kind of old now, and I don't know if I want to deal with the craziness. However, there is a chance I'll grow a pair by tonight, so give me a call.

Bigworm on Friday, May 04, 2007 at 2:23 PM

So is Mark going to be here?

joe on Friday, May 04, 2007 at 5:17 PM

today at work was pretty awesome figuring I saw the 4 bikes Jordan brought to town, Charles Oakley had some bikes, I saw Shannon Tweed and some dude from Lost, not the fat Mexican. Gene Simmons has been around but I didn't see him. A couple Bentleys drove by the smokers lounge in the parking garage while I was down there with Cat. It is nice working in the Galt House. Going into work I had to walk down a red carpet taht is out for a party tonight.

Sorry, I drove to Lexington to buy Abby a car today. I needed to conserve my energy to make sure I didn't fuck up my negotiations.

Marc on Saturday, May 05, 2007 at 9:18 PM

Sorry from Me as well. I have a severe case of strep throat according to the doctor. It hurts to talk and swallow. So I didn't think I'd be that good of company this weekend. Although I'm sure many of you would prefer me being unable to talk, I'm told.

Bigworm on Sunday, May 06, 2007 at 9:27 AM

It's all good Marc, Jay might be pondering a solo career though.

Jay on Monday, May 07, 2007 at 8:23 AM

No plans for Just like Jay yet. For the record, Allison is never hanging around us again.

Cuban on Monday, May 07, 2007 at 9:02 AM

I think Chris is trying to eliminate all new female interaction with natty sci.
He either insults them or Piledrive's them.

I suspect she will return. Douglas will tell her shit happens and he was really drunk.

For some reason, the ladies are uncomfortably drawn to us.

Jay on Monday, May 07, 2007 at 11:19 AM

That's true. We have had some girls return. Even the ones who saw my underwear.

Jay on Monday, May 07, 2007 at 11:49 AM

It probably didn't help that instead of helping her up, we all just kind of laughed.

Bigworm on Monday, May 07, 2007 at 11:58 AM

We were all laughing at Burket, she was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Plain and simple.

Cuban on Monday, May 07, 2007 at 1:18 PM

Wes, How many tx do you have for Thursday's game?

Wrecking Crew on Monday, May 07, 2007 at 1:42 PM

Speaking of Thursday, who is up for starting the day in Cinncy? 12:35 game against the Astros, probable starters Albers vs Harang. Weather forecast high of 82 with a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms. I was thinking of leaving here around 9am or a little earlier, either tailgaiting or grabbing some lunch in the Cinncy area before going into the game, then driving back into the Ville for Thirsty Thursday. Any takers? Joanna and I will have room for two more people in our car. Brock feel free to meet us up there if you aren't doing anything.

Barry on Monday, May 07, 2007 at 1:57 PM

sorry to disrupt thursday's plans, but if you were me would you be willing to move into an apartment in southern LA without central air

Bigworm on Monday, May 07, 2007 at 2:08 PM

5 tickets total. Abby and I are going to the Bats on Thursday. Joe was going to use a ticket so we have 2 tickets left.

Bigworm on Monday, May 07, 2007 at 2:09 PM

I am guessing Chris and Joanna might want thirsty thursday tickets.

Wrecking Crew on Monday, May 07, 2007 at 2:38 PM

Sure, I would like a ticket, but Joanna will not be joining us. She has a volleyball game that evening.

Okay, so looks like 1 ticket is still up for grab.

Brock on Monday, May 07, 2007 at 2:51 PM

I'd be willing to meet up with everyone for the Reds day game on Thursday provided I can convince my "boss" to let me skip out on meeting, which since I'm not getting payed for the time being should be an easy excuse.

I'd recommend lunch at the Hofbrauhaus for liters of fine German brew.

Cuban on Monday, May 07, 2007 at 2:53 PM

Wes, I need one for now.

I'm working on getting some through work. Bmac and inter will be joining us at the game

Joanna on Monday, May 07, 2007 at 3:00 PM

Mmmmm, Hofbrauhaus.

Cuban on Monday, May 07, 2007 at 4:02 PM

Wes, I got some through work so I'm good.

Bigworm on Monday, May 07, 2007 at 4:35 PM

Oh okay, that's cool. I have a feeling that Abby is going to be confined to her seat for a lot of the game since she is preggers so I will probably be hanging with her (smart cause I am not gonna get left behind).

Marc on Monday, May 07, 2007 at 4:43 PM

Wes, I'd like to go to the game on thursday if you still got a ticket. I signed up for thursday night summer classes as to not conflict with trivia nights (yes, I am an unbelieveable dork) but classes haven't started just yet. So i'd like to part-take in a thirsty thursday before I can't.

Marc on Monday, May 07, 2007 at 5:09 PM

Okay, so I watched Larry King Live interview the cast of Heroes last week. First of all, I know he might not watch the show or know anything about these people, but Larry's interviewing skills are completely diminished. Maybe its time to think about retirement before too many people notice.

Anyway, did anybody else know that Nathan Petrelli from Heroes (Adrian Pasdar) is married in real life to Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks. I don't know why it shocked me, it just did. And maybe the fictional "future President" being married to someone the current President hates is interesting to me.

why do people ever believe in me and set high standards for me? At work all the trainers and management are expecting me and another person to take the place over in a few years and at umpiring people are trying to get me to take over as head umpire and be CEO of the Metro Louisville Umpires Association (MLUA). People need to learn that it always ends in dissapointment and tears. When will they learn.

joe on Monday, May 07, 2007 at 11:02 PM

Oh ya, head umpire gets $5,000 up front to head up training and do scheduling on top of what I would be making to actually umpire. And people at work today said I am always a well dressed man. Am I living a second life I don't know of that perhaps I missed in my drunken stupor?

Marc on Wednesday, May 09, 2007 at 8:33 AM

Okay, I got a question for the Heroes dorks.

it's actually from last weeks episode of five years in the future. Okay, so Peter has a scar, which goes along with a previous episode when future Hiro tells him of it on a subway train. (I like how they don't forget to incorporate it for one) Okay, but here is my question if he is the one who blew up New York and is still alive and looks relatively the same (plus scar) then he can still regenerate. (Basically he doesn't look like charred flesh, instead he looked like himself.) So why does he have a scar? Why doesn't it heal? And I don't want some "emo" answer that he choose to wear it (or keep it) as a reminder of what he has done. When he and Claire healed in the past they did so often involuntarily. (Maybe pushing a rib back into place to speed up the process, but nevertheless it was involuntary healing) So i don't want to hear he choose not to heal his face. Just curious and stating my person taste and question to the matter. I'm sure Jay and Worm will contribute their thoughts.

Jerome on Wednesday, May 09, 2007 at 8:41 AM

One of my guesses on the scar is that Peter got it from Jessica. His healing isn't as strong if Claire isn't around so maybe Jessica roughed him up a bit. If Claire is in hiding 5 years into the future, that may have been the case.

My other guess is that the scar is simply a scar. Healing is still healing whether you have a scar or not.

My last guess is that he was at a restaurant in Louisville and didn't get served because the restaurant owner perceived him to be a murderer. So he cut his own face in protest.

Marc on Wednesday, May 09, 2007 at 9:19 AM

Wow Jerome, how ironic is your last statement. I mean except for the self mutilation thing, it seemed the same story happened to O.J. Simpson this past Friday (Derby Eve/Oakes). Weird!
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070509...eople_simpson_5

Jay on Wednesday, May 09, 2007 at 9:38 AM

Actually, the power to blow up came from Ted, who is immune to it, so it would not have left him charred at all in the first place. My guess is that he was damaged by something that made it harder for him to heal (Like Wolverine when he was cut by the Muramasa blade in Wolverine: Origins #5). So the obvious answer would be Hiro's Sword. Alternatively, Sylar was probably powerful enough to interrupt his healing or something like that. And Jerome, in the future, she wasn't Jessica at all. Apparently Nicky was able to exorcise her, and just use Jessica as a stage name.

I tell you what is disturbing. On break.com, there is a video of a little baby next to a cobra snake and got struck at 4 times with the parents around the child. Now i know most of the cobra snake charmers defang their snakes but my stomach churned watching a fucking baby fact to face with cobra getting bitten on top of the head. Eventually the baby grabs the snake sround the neck.

A programmer on a different application just sent out an email to everyone saying he found a solution for a particular programming requirement. On my team, there are two programmers. We came up with a similar solution and implemented it in our project like a month ago.

We wanted to email everyone and tear this asshole down a few notches because he is one of those types of people that likes to brag. I think my co-worker is conducting an email as i type this.

Barry on Wednesday, May 09, 2007 at 3:57 PM

wow OJ's attorney really is claiming racism. Surely he knows he can't win on those grounds (the point jen alluded to will be the defense), so my guess is this is a publicity stunt. OJ still owes a lot of money to the families from that civil trial. He may try to use this to get people to feel sorry for him (too bad so many people only view him as a man that got away with murder). What a flaming pile of dog excrement.

joe on Thursday, May 10, 2007 at 5:20 PM

the inventor of this race was on the cross country team at Trinity as a Freshman my senior year.

85. Run the Krispy Kreme Challenge at NC State. Three years ago, in a fit of sugar-coated inspiration, Wolfpack basketball guard Chris McCoy dreamed up a race tailor-made for the Peter Griffin set. The plan: Run from the campus bell tower downhill two miles to the Krispy Kreme store in Raleigh, where each runner would scarf down a dozen glazed doughnuts and then dash back uphill to the tower, in under 60 minutes. (The irony: McCoy overslept on race day and didn't participate.) The other 10 runners successfully completed the inaugural race -- junior Ben Gaddy took home bragging rights -- but not without some gut reactions. "The first two doughnuts are delicious, but then your saliva starts to turn into a syrupy glaze," says organizer Greg Mulholland. "When you're running back, it feels like the syrup's coming through your pores." Mulholland, a junior, aspires to turn the race into a charitable event, "maybe for something ironic like the American Heart Association."

That is pretty pitiful, Barry. I guess we just can't keep up with our younger selves.

Bigworm on Friday, May 11, 2007 at 2:28 PM

The best part was an 8 year old boy came down to us and asked us who had caught the foul ball so we pointed out the girl in our section who had kept it. He went over and asked her for the ball and the heartless bitch kept it for herself, which prompted a bunch of boys from us and yelling give the kid the ball.

Well as the kid was leaving we spotted the beads around his neck, so in true Natty Sci fashion we tell the kid to go up to her and offer her his beads for the foul ball, which he did, and gave us all a good chuckle for a solid 15 minutes.

And the usher for our section was a girl and apparently she got involved briefly, mainly because I think she was into some of the guys with us. When Joe and I went to the pisser and walked by her she just laughed and asked how the bead thing was going.

Jay on Friday, May 11, 2007 at 2:54 PM
