If Pro-Runners were Pokemon…

9 Feb

First of all, if you aren’t a nerd/geek and you get sex on the reg, you probably won’t like this post. And I don’t blame you. You can just leave now and come back Friday for an interview with one of the Milrose Mile runners!

But if you have no shame, like yours truly, and at the age of 20 or higher (hopefully not too much higher) you still think Pokemon is the shit, well then indulge in some nostalgic dorkiness below.  You probably won’t get a lot of these jokes without a decent/basic knowledge of Pokemans.

The premise is simple: If some of the most famous runners/running coaches/fans were Pokemon, what Pokemon would they be?

Alan Webb- Slowpoke

1:59.43.

No further explanation needed for this one.

 

Steve Prefontaine- Pikachu

Who makes these freaking pictures..

A super overhyped Pokemon/the most recognizable Pokemon name by non Pokemon fans.  Why overhyped? Well he’s not a bad Pokemon but if I wouldn’t choose him for my Elite Four team.

 

Will Leer- Alakazam

THE STACHE

 

Derek Rubis- Ditto

Face in Hole totally stole their ideas from Ditto!

 

Silas Kiplagat- Mudkip

Silas Mudkiplagat

 

OTC- Team Rocket

The annoying bad guys

 

Galen Rupp- Meowth

Team Rocket's Mascot

 

Alberto Salazar- Giovanni

Team Rocket's Manager

Matt Centrowitz- Scyther

THE THROAT SLIT. Also Scyther is cool as fuck

 

Kara Goucher- Eevee

FREAKING ADORABLE

 

Marion Jones- Mewtwo

Totally unnatural and lab created.

 

Dwight Stones- Koffing

Worthless and pollutes our sport when he opens his mouth on air.

 

Anna (Willard) Pierce- Ninetales

Feisty, Fast, Foxy.

    Probably the best thing I’ve ever read… including To Kill a Mockingbird and all that classics stuff.

      This has winning all over it. Too bad my readership consists of a lotta younger kids. Keep killin’ it!
