This is the first time I've ever wished for video on a podcast. With rasslin'.

I don't think either of your events reaches the heights of absurdity that racewalking does, with that crazy hip-rolling. And I say that as a former competitive racewalker (high school German class, Dallas, TX, before any of you were born).

That wasn't hilarious. It was sad.

I actually caught a bit of the racewalking on TV last night - it still looks just as nutty as it did in that film in the 60s set in Japan did.

As opposed to the women's BMX races - now those were cool!

I wonder if we have Esther Williams to thank for all this. If so, THANK YOU, Esther!

That video is like a horrible mash-up of
R Place and the local pool.
