News, but not the serious kind
Could you resist the temptation?
Blog Guy, you seem to be dropping the ball on Stupid Sports, which used to be one of your main coverage areas. Come on, there must be SOMETHING goofy going on among the world’s athletes!
You’re right, this is the season for Traction Distraction Racing, and I have to say…
Sorry, back up a minute. What is Traction Distraction Racing?
Looks like he made it past them without rolling over or crashing or anything, huh?
Well, just until their tops came off. Then there was a flaming six-car pile-up.
So that’s all there is to this so-called sport? Guys being tempted by half-naked chicks? That’s not very evolved.
You take this photo on the left. A normal race car driver with human emotions like you and me, driving 224 miles per hour when suddenly he sees a guy holding up a big sign. The driver must decide instantly whether to keep going or to veer off and hit him.
Gosh, what did the sign say?
It said, “Honk if you Love Spammers.” If you look closely you can just make out his legs flying over the car…
