Oui Peeple are Knarp Shives!

Ok, I'm not the brightest star in the shed, I'll admit that, but this is a flat out cut and paste message from a wannabe Croom Racer:

Hi, I just tried to register online and it's closed. The same thing happened to me last year. Can you please help me? I wanted to run on some different trails before running Sweetwater 50k on May 30. If there's anything you can do I'd appreciate it!
Ok, honey, ok darlin', you were shut out last year, so how about you wait just as long, no maybe a bit longer, then you did last year and then try to register. I mean the dern race is less than two weeks away!I love peeple, we're so darn __________!

You know, may have been a thought in the pre "BLF" era. Another is that we could meet at the Jimmy Buffet show, she could buy the tickets. "What it's sold out?" er, yeah, my point exactly, I shoot I score, she walks in another park but not in Croom on April 11!

Well, it is a Fool's run.

It's a good thing I only register for races the day before they start or I might have been stuck at Western States last summer with nothing to do. Bwah ha ha ha!!!

I'm still bothered by this post. Why can't a person check into all their options and ask for help without being looked at as a fool?

Hey, Andy. I want to run. Can I get in? You know, defending Champ and all. I can! great! Opps, my poor hip suddenly hurts real bad.

How bout givin that poor "Fool" my spot.

Chase Squires said...

Star, I gotta say, if it was the first time, like 'gee, I didn't know it would fill up,' I'd cut 'em a break ...

Second time ... "gee, it filled up early last year, so this year I waited again 'till the last minute and tried again" ... you're a dumbass ...

Try that with Western States, see where it gits ya.

star - you know the old saying...fool me once, shame on me; fool me twice, write a blog entry about me.

AndyMan said...

Star, hey I didn't use a name. And we were real nice to the person as we put them on the waiting list, but we were kind of like Chase said, if you got shut out last year, if you really want to run, do you want to wait till less than two weeks before the start to register again?

Hate to say it, but she shouldn't have mentioned last year. Hey, she'd still be on a waiting list, but she wouldn't be my weekly Dim Bulb!

Adam, that's funny, let me know if you need an entry, you are on my list.

Roger, just show up race day if you're hip is ok, Danny Ripka's coming and he wants a piece of you (I'm not sure how he meant that though!)

Roger said...

Danny DID beat me by 90 seconds in 2007 but I scared him bad enough that he did'nt show in 2008!

I'm sure he's only coming back because he saw I wasn't registered (and he knows the RD doesn't allow "late entrys")...
