Oxymoronic? If this is serious then track should introduce the smokers mile. Qualifying standard would be a minimum of two packs a day for ten years.

In that case I'm going to institute mudwrestling cheerleading. Do the pyramids and flips and stuff, then tag-team in a giant wading pool of thick mud. Would be scored on a 10-point-must system (as in boxing) but a pin in the mud is an outright victory. Only one male over 250 pounds per team, just to keep it on the up-and-up. We wouldn't want to turn this into a joke or anything.

The field events should add the 'obesity long jump'?

Points awarded for total weight carried and distance jumped. I'm sure eldrick could come up with a suitable scoring system. Just imagine the opportunities for posturing during the weigh-in.

serious shortcoming of the board; took me forever to figure out that the "this is idiotic" was a link.

Underline should fix that. I may have to tweak styles more.

I don't know how many of those things Jon did before I noticed what was going on.

We could also have the Marathon crap, a la Paula Radcliffe.

You have to stop every 5k for a quick dump.

Bonus points for volume, appearance etc.

How about Contact Bridge? I haven't figured out the rules yet, but there are some interesting possibilities.

I can just imagine what happens when people register for a session of Contract Bridge and find that card playing is only half of what they've signed up for. :)

Daisy,

I know, that is why I put it in a tinyurl. NO ONE was going to open up the real URL.

It is quite toasty down here - kind of like July in Sacramento . . .
