What happens when two track athletes marry?

Postby Runswizzle » Tue Jul 13, 2004 5:21 am

I posted this on another site but had no response.

Here's some sportscaster's nightmares after track athletes decide to get married and keep their maiden names.

When I worked in television we always joked about Mary Decker Tabb Slaney or the potential for Celena Mondie Milner marrying Kareeme Streete Thompson.She'd be Celena Mondie-Milner Streete-Thompson.

Here's a few new 'marriages' based on 04 Trials entries,that will make the folks @ USA Network and NBC squirm..!!

Marshevet Hooker marries Brian Sell to become Marshevet Hooker Sell..and later divorces Sell for Milton Little.She keeps all her names and becomes the "new" Marshevet Hooker Sell Little.This is not a joke but a real possibility..!!

Coonie Moore marries Joey Woody she then becomes Coonie Moore Woody..!!

Spring Harris marries Tim Montgommery(I think Marion will okay this..!!)She decides to just drop the Harris surname and become Spring Montgommery...wife's name should sound nice in the courtroom..!!

There's lots of potential 'marriages' lets hear them.

"This is not a joke"

No one's accusing you of humor here! :-)

>There's lots of potential 'marriages' lets hear them.





What about if Ak Aki Firdaus Pg Hj Ibrahim marries Anoma Sooriarachchi. Anoma would become:

Anoma Sooriarachchi-Pg Hj Ibrahim


But they break up and naturally she keeps that name. She then sees Gebregziabher Gebremariam, whom she likes the look of. After a few months of dating they get married - lo and behold, another part of her name! She is now:

Anoma Sooriarachchi-Pg Hj Ibrahim-Gebremariam


They have a kid and name it after the father:

Gebregziabher Jr Sooriarachchi-Pg Hj Ibrahim-Gebremariam


Gebregziabher Jr grows up to marry Lentoiaina Ramalalanirina, so his eventual wife is called:

Lentoiaina Ramalalanirina-Sooriarachchi-Pg Hj Ibrahim-Gebremariam

Another love story....



So Demetria Washington marries Tyree Washington; for a bet, she chose to have a double-barrelled surname of 'Washington Washington'. They soon realise that they rushed into marriage instead of taking their time, and eventually split up. In the divorce settlement, Tyree got EVERYTHING.. the lucky bugger.

Meanwhile, Ralph Boston strikes it lucky and wins the lottery - $3million. Demetria hears all about Ralph's win and so hooks up with him (she likes the older man) to see if he could help her work her way out of financial difficulty. They find they have many things in common (both American, both athletes, etc) and so they tie the knot. Demetria's father isn't too keen on her getting rid of 'Washington' from her name, and so yet again she chooses to add Ralph's surname onto her own. She is now "Demetria Washington-Washington-Boston".

In the midst of all this, Demetria discovers she is pregnant. She has the baby and is now awaiting blood tests to find out who the father is (Tyree or Ralph... it all happened so quickly!). Committed as always to her own event (the 400m), she is a big fan of Botswanian 400m athlete California Molefe and so wants to name the child after him. But hubby Ralph wants to name it after his old team-mate from the 60's, Dallas Long. Seeing as we're not even sure if Ralph is the rightful father, he concedes to having 'Dallas' as the child's middle name. So the child ends up with the name of:



California Dallas Washington-Washington-Boston

Note to readers unfamiliar with Jon: he sleeps all day and stays up all night. Now you see what can happen when you live this sort of depraved life-style!

Very true - those facts can't be ignored or denied.

But remember I'm back at Uni now and they expect us to go in for morning lectures!! They're forcing me into a normal routine!!

Yes, I can confirm that. It's 7pm where Jon is, he must have been up for at least 4 hours by now. He actually get's up after me and I'm 8 hours behind!

I was at a Hs reunion a few years ago and ran into the first girl I had ever kissed. Her name back then was Debbie Smith, but she had recently married a man from Thailand whose last name was "Porn". Debbie Smith was still going by Debbie Smith, despite being newly married.

I always have wondered what was so bad about being known as Debbie Porn.

Can anyone help me out here?

But would she be a residential phone listing or a business listing?

This is really getting confusing!

My lady's name is Leilani, she dropped the "Lei" part when she was 13, once the boys figured it out...

That must be a record for a student.

Once, I slept for 11 hours...

...in a whole week.

I know the feeling. Last week of term - hand in week! Had about 6-7 projects to hand in, all in the one week. Was going into Uni shaking each day, after having 2-3 hours sleep each night!
