Happy Bday, Pre.

25 Jan

I’ve  missed two posts, not from laziness, but from getting done with practice after 8pm. I don’t make posts after 8 because they get much less traffic. Sorry d00dz.

First off, help some of my friends out and vote for them in the New Balance spike contest on fbook!

Go to “Gallery”, search “Temi” and vote for his spike. It’s red white and blue, so if you don’t like it then you’re a terrorist.

 

Anyway, it’s Pre’s bday y’all!

Happy B-day Bronie

Obviously Pre is one of the most over-marketed  well known runners of all time.  I’m not sure there has ever been a high school meet without at least one scrawny white kid wearing a t-shirt with Pre’s mug on it.

Pretty sure I owned this shirt once.. We all have, we all have.

With all this hype, should we really idolize him like Nike has been telling us to do for years?

Maybe not idolize, but respect? Yes.

WHY?

THE ‘STACHE

DEAR GOD IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL

His ‘stache makes me feel like an inferior man.  I’ve never had one long enough to comb and trim 😦

Ladies Man.

Front page of Sports Illustrated. Bitches love the front page of Sports Illustrated.

According to accounts from his friends and from the 2 or 3 movies about him, Pre got “mad tail” and what not.  Not common for a national class distance runner these days.

He said cool stuff.

PREACH.

Minus that whole “Suicide Pace” BS, Pre spoke like the Muhammad Ali of the track world.

He was “alright” at running.

"Where'd y'all go?"

He was ok I guess.

Pre was more famous than any distance runner any of us young folk have seen in our lives. People who played REAL SPORTS actually admired this dude.  Ask any of your footballer friends to name one distance runner and they probably respond with “Pre”.  If we had more national class runners with his swagger, mustache,  and stupid racing tactics ballsy racing performances, maybe more people would watch our sport.

Unfortunately, Pre was not as good at drunk driving as he was at running.  So that’ll forever tarnish his reputation.

"Do a barrel roll!"

He’ll forever be known for dying in a drunk driving accident.  But hey, that’s way better than dying in shame from not stopping little boys from getting molested.

Its not funny because it's true.

Shirt Design Pics to come on Friday!!

    You’re an absolute douche. Joe Paterno is an icon and did far more for society than anyone in our sport ever has. Frank Shorter let Prefontaine drive because he didn’t seem to be overly impaired. A single bad judgement costed him his life, again be overly flippant in place of having a real sense of humor or writing about something with substance.

    If you want to insult someone with good reason, consider attacking barely mediocre athletes (emphasis on barely) with large followings because of self promotion….

      Hey broseph,
      THIS IS A HUMOR/SATIRE BLOG. I MAKE JOKES. Almost nothing I say on this site is completely serious. I made this blog to poke fun at running. If you don’t like it, then don’t read it.

      And get over yourself, Jo Paterno didn’t report child RAPE. RAPE OF AN INNOCENT CHILD. Who gives a shit how many football games he won, he put football and not getting bad press over the safety of a child.

      Nice name, I’m guessing your last name is Sandusky.

      Jerry came back for seconds with Sandusky.

    lighten up people and laugh a little! if you’re going to get that butt hurt over a little joke then you have no business reading this blog in the first place

    Pre was world class when he died, not just ok…. btw did he actually say the suicide pace quote? Keep up the legit posts man!

    • eatrunswag January 26, 2012 at 5:40 am #

      Haha oh I know, that “he was ok I guess..” is sarcasm. He was quite good, would have been nice to see a few more years..

    Joe Pa and his wife donated 4 million dollars to fund a library at Penn State. That’s about 4.5 years worth of his salary assuming his wife didn’t work.

    He reported the crime to the head of campus police. He would not have been criminally or civilly liable for anything having to do with the Sandusky assaults.

    • eatrunswag January 27, 2012 at 1:02 pm #

      WHO GIVES A FUCK WHAT HE DONATED.

      He reported CHILD MOLESTATION to UNIVERSITY OFFICIALS, THE NEXT DAY. The dumb shits he told didn’t think it was important so they failed to report it to the police. When there is sexual child abuse, you contact the police, RIGHT AWAY. He continued letting this pervert walk around campus instead of checking to see if any official actions had been taken to look into the allegations against Sandusky.

      Get your facts straight you little twat.
