Wild World Of Wednesday - July 29, 2009



Thank You!: Thank you for retiring again, Mr. Brett Favre. I really appreciate it. Don't get me wrong; I completely understand the desire to continue doing what you love. It's a way of staving off growing older. Nobody wants to get out of shape and become irrelevant, so I completely understand the delay. Why not take up golf? How about starting a football camp for kids? There is so much you can still do.

Enough With This Guy: Aww...poor Michael Vick. Seriously? I can't even talk about this guy more.

He's A Human Too: So Michael Phelps came in second - big deal! Lance Armstrong just came in third and everyone sees that as a victory. Guess what, it was bound to happen. Phelps can't win every race he enters for the rest of his career. Nobody is perfect. Oh, and as for those swimsuits making a big difference - please! Nothing takes the place of training and being in top shape. Equipment evolves for every sport and each generation of athletes achieves more than their predecessors. Get over it.

Yeah, enough about Favre. We had to hear so much about it since we are so close to Minneapolis.

I won't even say anything about Michael Vick.

As for swimming, in high school we had to wear the tightest suits during races, like 2 or 3 sizes smaller than what we would normally wear. Gross! Plus the whole shaving your whole body thing. It was probably mostly mental, but it did help our times.
