    That's not just clueless; that's sightless. He has a Greek god sculpted in flesh and blood! I'd have to verge on the homo-erotic to express how much I wanted to be built like him!!!!

    P.S.
    Having won sprint AND distance titles here, can we finally lose the inferiority complex that we seem to have that we can't excel at ALL events (yes, HT and TJ, that means you too!).

    I lost interest in boxing after the Buster Douglas debacle. Now it strikes me as anti-sport - people trying to foster the onset of dementia. I did watch highlights of this fight and realized I really...

    I wonder when that came to be. Growing up, I saw this in many athletic contexts and never gave it a second thought. It's metaphorical, not literal.

    It comes and goes. I'm actually starting to see a swing back towards multi-sport athletes around here. The area's best soccer player ran the 800 this year and excelled.
