Q: Let's face it. Those who choose distance running can't handle the
real sports, like football, baseball and basketball...and especially couldn't
even think about doing the ultimate physical challenge: NASCAR racing.
Running is basically a sport for those without any real talent. Name me
one distance runner who could do any of the skill sports...hell...if we
want to pretend itis a sport just for a minute, I'll even throw in golf
just to add to my argument...Take my advice: If you want to add some Real
Truth to your website, let's start talkin' Richard Petty. I challenge
any one of you wimps (and I mean you Rage, Manciata...and that blow fish
on your home page, too) to slide behind the wheel of 'ol #43 at Datona
for a couple hours. As Neil Armstrong said, "I believe God gave us
all a limited number of heart beats,and I will be damned if I use mine
up running up and down the street." Wake up and smell the coffee,
Rage, Coop and you too, Parks.
(Sorry Neil. No fair using your rig). Then will all will run five laps
around the Datona speedway. We will all take our times and
subtract them from the MPH points. Immediately following the run, we'll
take 50 cuts each from a pitching machine throwing 75 MPH fast balls.
For each fair ball you hit, you get a point. Next, we go for 18 holes.
You can play with any legal five iron manufactured before 1940. That's
all you get to carry. Medal play. No mulligans. No gimees. No handicap.
The course played will be one featured on PastureGolf.com.
You subtract your score from your cumulative
No calling your own fouls. No three pointers. Winners outs. Winning team members get 50 points each. If you are still around, we'll buy you a beer unless you want to go for a little run, first.
