An Apology

Let me say that I am sorry for posting the link to the awesome video of a runner from the BIG10 falling down and still winning a race. I now realize that this may have caused fits of jealous rage such that you may have been tempted to post comments regarding some other, lower conference just to keep your self esteem in balance. I realize that not all of you are lucky enough to be Ohio State Buckeye fans and that I should take pity on those of you who's football teams only managed a 10-4 record (if you can call it that) last year. I really didn't realize how this one little video could elicit so much rage, but then again my team has always been good so I am not used to being jealous of others or an underdog. To those of you who may not understand what I am talking about let me give you a warning. There is a virus out there on this blog network. It is disguised as a beautiful young lady neatly packaged under a cute pink Tennessee Volunteer's hat. It will be nice enough at first, but BEWARE! Mention any other conference other than the SEC (Southeastern Conference, how original! Hey let's just use our geographic location as a name that'll be cool!) and it will infect your blog with nasty comments to remind you of this other, lower conference.

Is it too early for college football smack talk??


B.T.W. Ran 9 miles tonight and everything below my waist hurt! Felt like I was wearing cement blocks for shoes. I never really loosened up the whole run. I suppose I am still sore from the race on Saturday. I am travelling tomorrow and will run from a hotel on Thursday. Hope I feel better by then.

It is NEVER TOO EARLY to talk SMACK about the Ohio State Buckeyes.....what is a Buckeye? It sounds kinda painful!

My word verification is "deveil"...similar to devil....oh I'm in a devilish mood now!!!

UT Volunteers!!! Rocky Top!

Buckeyes are NUTS! I love football smack talk (esp when I'm an innocent bystander). :D And er, Willie - I don't know that you should be dissing the SEC for using geography as a theme. Seems the Big 10 is maybe ... compensating for a certain lack if they've got to use SIZE as their theme? Just saying.
My run today? Non existent. So go boy on the cement block run. I guess I'll be bricking it tomorrow.

I will be honest, I have no idea what you people are talking about, but I am all for smack talking so have at it.

Let me be a devil's advocate here: What the hell is a 'buckeye'? and who has an unpaid employee as their mascot?

9 miles of cement legs, now that, I know something about. I have had those runs. The "gut it out" runs. They suck, but they also make the good ones all the sweeter.
