Wow 2,000 miles...
Real men are still real.
Best of Luck Todd!
Go Todd go! Run Sarah run! God Bless America!
There are no greater Americans then the Palin family.
Put the Obumbo family up against them....well, that would be a joke.
Ping to the TODD PALIN IS A HUNK! List.
Go, TEAM 11!
I don't want to use the term "royalty" because that's not what America is about but the Palin family -- every one of them -- represent the very, very best. I guffaw when people refer to the Kennedy era as Camelot. That clan, from the bootlegger old man to the Carolyn and John John are utterly repulsive to the core. The contrast between the Kennedys and the Palins is, well, stark to put it mildly.
Getting ready to socket to 'em!
“when people refer to the Kennedy era as Camelot.”
The Kennedy family is the scum of the earth...every member of it.
Went to see how they run the two-man teams (2 men, two machines. I’m guessing that both sleds need to come across at about the same time). Then wanted to read a story of a race for some flavor. Found this one, with a snippet:
“We spent some time trying to locate the trail, looping around and backtracking, but by this point we were thoroughly lost. We stopped and pulled out our compass and maps. We had already been on the trail for about 16 hours since our start in Big Lake. We were exhausted and all getting close to hypothermia, especially me. When you are in that condition, maps and compasses do not make any sense. Later, back at home when we looked at the maps, it would have been so easy to continue and use our compass to go on through the storm.”
HEY! i thot i was on your dancin wit der stars pinglist
LOL. You were, weren’t you?
no my mistake this is the american idol ping list
Exciting, my prayers are with them as well, for safety first and a 1st place finish.
I know the men droll over Sarah and rightfully so, but dang that Todd is a fine looking man!
Oh yeah, “big time.”
12:00 Noon Central , should be 7pm.
Thank you for posting this onyx. :)
That would be 3AM. They’re going to have to start without me. :(
Oh. Yes, he is. He really is. Most definitely.
Todd! THUDD! Whew! It is getting warm in here and my knees are a bit shaky.
