Dear Blog Guy,
I need to lose a few pounds, and I’m looking for a good sport to get involved in. Do you have any tips?
Eager to Compete

Yes, Eager, I have some tips. Avoid sports with names like extreme, mountain, insane, death, wolverine, and tough guy. This video clip, for instance, shows what you may encounter in the tough guy category. The winner is speaking English, and we still need subtitles. Not a good sign.

I wonder if they also have a tough girl category? If the gals talk like him, that would be entertainment in and of itself!
