Oddly Enough Blog

News, but not the serious kind

Are you ready, athletes? Blow and go!

Blog Guy, you never seem to write much about the sport I participate in, the biathlon.

Sorry, I’ll do that right now. What instrument do you play?

Instrument? What are you talking about?

Sigh. The classic biathlon is a two-part sport. You play a piece on a brass instrument, then you swim 103 miles from Cuba to Florida.

Are you out of your mind?

No. What do you think the biathlon slogan means, anyway? “Play a tuba, swim from Cuba.” Look, here are photos of a recent one. This athlete is just finishing up the William Tell Overture on a trumpet before diving in for her long swim.

Honestly, Blog Guy, I don’t know why I come back here to this crapfest of stupidity! For your information, MY biathlon involves skiing and rifle shooting.
