Ironhead

Sometime this morning, FOG:TB D-Train entered the Ohio River wearing nothing but a Speedo, goggles, and some magic marker. Maybe some vaseline to protect against nipple-chafing.

Later this afternoon, good Lord willing and the creek don't rise, he'll stumble over the finish line of the 2010 Ford Ironman Louisville after swimming 2.4 miles, biking 112 miles through horse country and running 26.2 miles. Godspeed, D-Train. Better you than us.

(As far as I know, that's not a picture of the D-Train.)

You fucking people and your marathons. I can genuinely not relate to the desire to participate in such an event. Nevertheless, good luck to D-Train. He'll have definitely earned his fall Saturdays after today is through.

I, on the other hand, have my big fantasy draft (14 teams, $500 per, winner take all) today. I'm more than a little excited.

Dave said...

holy shit, that is more exciting than an ironman . . . seven grand for the winner?

how long did it take d-train to finish?

TR said...

This Emmy intro is either an epic trainwreck or totally awesome. Can't decide.

TR said...

And while we're at it, you all need to look at the dye jobs that Joe Buck and Troy Aikman are sporting. Equally ridiculous shades of chestnut.

But the ridiculousness of their hair is overshadowed by the immense girth Pam Oliver has packed on. Not sure if she's pregnant, ill or just plain fat, but it's jarring. Her backyard must be ginormous.

TR said...

I may be alone on drunken Emmy live-blog island, but I have a bone to pick with the Big Bang Theory dude winning best actor. He's not worthy of eating Alec Baldwin's feces. And he peaked at "it says balls on your face."

rob said...

i'm drafting a shitty fantasy football team. the emmys are probably more fun.

rob said...

what is 'breaking bad' and why does it keep winning things?

TR said...

I'm not sayong Julia Louise Dreyfuss still has her fastball, but she's Jamie Moyeresque in her cougarishness. I hope that comes out less gay than it reads to me.

And to your second post, the public is a sucker for a good meth story. Like stories about love and puppy dogs.

TR said...

Pam Oliver interview coming up. Check out the girth for yourself!

T.J. said...

Pam ended that interview by downing Orton with some chianti.

Dave said...

if you're not watching "breaking bad" then you are missing out. best TV show around. read "methland" first.

TR said...

4 days until college football? 4 days until college football!

rob said...

what channel is it on? breaking bad, not pam oliver's backside.

d-train said...

thanks little buddy.
d-train's an ironman...12 hours and 25 minutes of hellishness....followed by a couple of iv's and i'm as good as gold.
96 degrees out there today...wasn't fun.
cheers & thanks for the props. peace out.

rob said...

no offense, d-train, but that's fucking stupid.

rob said...

and cool. forgot about cool.

T.J. said...

You. are. insane.

d-train said...

and ready for some co co ones.

d-train said...

and coincidentally...my outfit was eerily similar to the one shown.

mayhugh said...

d-train - nicely done. One hopes you don't have to drag yourself out of bed for the next couple of days.

Dave said...

d-train--

when you say a couple of iv's, do you mean the cool new sports drink, or are you talking about someone actually sticking a needle in your arm?

i played soccer for two hours yesterday and then complained about how fucking hot it was for the next ten and a half hours, but i guess i should have just swam and biked the rest of the day . . .

congratulations . . . 12 miles an hour for 12 hours. insane.

Igor said...

I knew D-train back when he participated in a 52-hour marathon of watching conference tournament college basketball, eating delivery food, and drinking beers on a couch one weekend. Rob and I were part of that feat of endurance; I'm pretty sure we won't be joining him in this sort of endeavor.

d-train said...

igor - will be back on that regimen in no time - this weekend in fact. and yes dave - real IV's...the medical clinic was crazy insane...a lot of f'd up people...

Dave said...

excellent. my idea for a new sports drink called "intravenous" is a go!

Geoff said...

Hey d-train--how about Monty pick Edoardo Molinari for the Ryder Cup team over Justin Rose and Paul Casey? Impending disaster...

Squeaky said...

D-train. Awesome job. Puts me to shame.
