After Further Review

Ok, I'm in.
I'm doin' it.
I Shouldn't, but I am.

Got my e-mail from Western States yesterday.

It said, "If you wish to run Western States (provided we actually have it in 2009) you can... Provided you sign up using our way too complicated and expensive method. You've got a week to decide..... Go!"

Well, they are arrogant S.O.B's, it's true, but I do want to run their race, and it is their race, it isn't my race, so I have to follow their rules. I'm doin' it. (I will say, that I'm waiting till after I have my appointment with the renowned Dr. LeFeete tomorrow, before I pay my money down.)

You know what steams my bean? They are calling it the 36th Annual. Huh? Didn't they cancel the 35th? Shouldn't this be the 35th? WTF? This is the type of accounting that has put Leeward Brothers in the Johnny Crapper! Yeah, it's the 35th you silly guys.

I lost my mind, my foot, my wallet, I know, I know, but, well, see, it's like this, I don't get no special exmep-shuns, so, if'n I wanna run, this is how I have to do it...

Star said...

Roger, its because Andy drinks while he's running and that's a double whammy. He's killed too many brain cells to know better.

Roger said...

I agree, there is a brain cell survival issue at the bottom of this sad tale.

Oh well, I'll buy a beer for anyone who finishes WS in 2009 provided that they come to my house on the Thursday after to pick it up...

Well, I guest ya hadda. Ain't no point in gettin' all hot and bothered about it.

Anonymous said...

I believe it is being called the "36th annual" because this would be the 36th consecutive year they have collected race entry fees. That is what the race is really about, the fees. Why bother counting the times they actually let people run?

AndyMan said...

Yeah, it probably is the 36th time they made people pay (probably made Gordy pay twice when his horse went gimpy, once for the horse race and once for the footrace!)

I hear next year they are making you pay if you even think about doing the race!

Roger,

If we come to your house for the beer will you tell us last minute that we can't have it 'cause the smoke is too bad?

Roger said...

You can have the beer, but there is an unannounced 8 hour "service requirement". I'm adding a new wing onto the house so I'm sure we can take care of it on the spot.
