I have the glue sniffing ping list, isn't it pretty much the same?

The sport hasn't caught on down here yet.

I would expect the ping list to be pretty short.

That skeleton racing thing ain't bad though.  But the chicks are kind of skanks, so far that I've seen.  What'd be really hot, is to have super buxom chicks in those skin tight racing suits either doing that, or the one where they lie on their backs, is that the luge?

The unsportsmanlike penalties are usually at the bar after the match.

I have the god-given ability to "photoshop" a pretty face on a chick in a skeleton racing suit.

Scary thing is most of thecompetitors were born when I was in high school or after.

The German one wasn't bad, decent body, decent face, but when dealing with Germans, you've got to make allowances for "unpleasant surprises".

Scary thing is most of thecompetitors were born when I was in high school or after.

I remember the first player to make the major leagues who was younger than me, Mark Lewis/Cleveland Indians.  It was kind of traumatic, realizing I was probably never going to make it to the major leagues, the fact that I'd never really laid any of the groundwork to make this a possibility not withstanding.

Temple Football just hired 36 year old Al Golden to be the next head coach.  He's about 7 months younger than I am.  That's another thing that makes you look in the mirror and think about what's looking back at you.

Thanks for telling me. I have no idea why, but this sport has always fascinated me, despite being from the South.

You know I was on the Temple University Curling Team, right?  I was the captain in fact.  It wasn't a scholarship sport, it was just intramural... well, it was going to be.  When I was there (same as now) it wasn't officially sanctioned.  Or, really, recognized by the Univeristy, but we competed hard.  Well, we would of, if we'd gotten time at the ice rink.  If there was one.

Mainly it was an excuse for some of us to tip back a few tall ones at the draft horse.  Okay, mainly it was just me drinking alone.  But at least I was indoors.
