GPS Art Contest Winner

GPS Art Contest Winner

Larry Bird was a cocky SOB, but when he famously walked into the locker room before the first ever  NBA 3-point shooting contest and asked “which one of you is coming in second?”. He was just that good.

Well thanks for the entries in the GPS art contest, in which we challenged you to “draw” a design by riding or running, but early on it became clear that this was a race for second place, and that Michael Wallace was going to ...

Pancake Limerick Contest Winners

And now for the winner(s) of the Pancake Limerick Contest!

The Sycophant Award goes to Billy Simmons. Of course he knows this is meaningless because, while his limericks aren’t bad, sucking up doesn’t work on this judge.

The It’s My Contest Award goes to Jonathan Cane. That doesn’t mean he’s actually won anything. Besides, he can get a t-shirt anytime he wants one.

The Award for Best Use of Colorful Language goes to Ken. My pans say the same thing whenever I try ...

No More Calls, We Have a Winner

When we announced last week’s crazy workout gear contest, I suspected that it would be a two horse race. The obvious favorite was the lovely Nicole Sin Quee, she of the mismatched compression socks, animal print booty shorts and leopard print swim cap. But even Ms. Sin Quee was outclassed this time. Our winner is our very own Matthew Duelka, who rode the bike leg of the NYC Triathlon in cutoff jorts, a John Starks basketball jersey, and NJ Nets ...

It’s Contest Time: Show Us Your Best Worst Workout Gear

Recently I entered my prized Grateful Dead sponsored, 1992 Lithuanian Olympic Basketball team jersey in a contest. Inexplicably, it did not win. (OK, maybe it wasn’t inexplicable since I recently publicly slammed the judge.)

Anyway, it got me to thinking. What’s the craziest piece of swim, bike, or run gear that’s still in your workout drawer?  Show us your best bad – the ...
