    Breaking news. All mediocre hobbyists who participate in group events get sunshine blown up their asses.

     

     

    Trolling seems to be an exception to this.

      That explains a lot. I thought it was something I ate.

          Is that Kenny Stabler?  Man, he was MONEY in the 70's, not so much now from what I've read.

            It is!  I'm a third generation Raiders fan.  I had no choice in the matter as I was branded at birth..  Being born in the late 70's, I haven't had the chance to experience a good run (not discounting the "Gruden" era, of course).  I recently branded my son.  He's only 16 months old and has no clue what being a Raiders fan is, but I know he will thank me someday.

              I embrace my mediocrity and celebrate it with all the lackluster enthusiasm I can muster.

              I'm happy, hope you're happy too...

                My mediocrity has put me in the top 3 in AG in more than half the races I've done.

                  2 of 10 on the troll scale.  Too obvious.  ...

                   

                  Well, the topic is mediocrity.

                  It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

                    I have delusions of mediocity.

                    Janie, today I quit my job. And then I told my boss to go f*** himself, and then I blackmailed him for almost sixty thousand dollars. Pass the asparagus.

                          Why is running the only sport where mediocrity is not only accepted but praised? It reminds me of the courtesy clap that is given to all of the runners who just finish the race. This may be the reason that Americans cannot compete on the world stage.

                           

                          Note: this is not a jab at people who train hard for their own personal goals, but the mindset of races having a lot of swag, chip timing and getting praised just for showing up.

                           

                          So...why don't you post a pic of yourself running the Olympic Marathon Trials, or running neck and neck with one of the elites? Then all of us medicores can bow to you and help you celebrate your elite status.

                            Isn't mediocrity relative?


                            just a simple cat

                              My relatives are...

                                Because if it wasn't I'd go home and cry from low self-esteem after every race.
