Ian Stewart and Stephanie Hightower: The most hated couple in Track and Field.

17 Jul

(I’m not sure how “slander” lawsuits work, so I think it’s necessary to point out any quotes in this post aren’t real)

Unless you’ve been without internet for the last week, undoubtably you’ve heard of the fiasco that occurred at the London Diamond League meeting this past weekend.

(Ironically none of the athletes can afford a diamond..)

In case you haven’t heard yet, both Lolo “Virgin Mary” Jones and Nick “One Night In Paris” Symmonds were barred from competing in the meet. The athletes were barred and told by meet director Ian “Suck-ass” Stewart that they were “a liability” and would not be allowed to participate in meets that he directed.
Wait, what?

Two Olympians and two of the most famous track and field athletes IN THE WORLD were too much of a liability to appear at a meet?
LOLO JONES a liability? The girl that won’t round past 3rd base? Afraid she’d give too many athletes/fans blue balls?

Blue. Balls.

Nick Symmonds a liability? Having an American try and chase good times and make a race intresting is too dangerous? Afraid he’d whip it out and slay Paris Hilton after the finish line?

A liability for being too…adorable?

In reality these athletes were not allowed to compete because of their views on how their advertising and sponsorship rights.

(Read this awesome blog on the situation:

http://tracksuperfan.com/symmonds-stewart-controversy    )

See Lolo and Nick have this “BATSHIT CRAZY” idea that they should be able to make at least as much money as an elementary school teacher. Ha, Greedy Bastards right???

As the article I posted states, 50 percent of the top American Track and Field athletes make more than 15,000 a year from the sport. Did you hear about that high schooler that was busted for a marijuana dealing ring in Ohio a few days ago? He was making 20 GRAND A MONTH. Or howabout Drew Brees signing a ONE HUNDRED MILLION DOLLAR five year contract this past weekend?

And Stewart is worried about these athletes making a few extra bucks with a Red Bull logo on their headband or a temporary tattoo on their shoulder?

He even looks like an asshole.

Now as if having one sport ruining meet official wasn’t bad enough, the man just happens to be married to the head dictator at USATF, Stephanie Hightower.

Stephanie was having mood problems due to “that time of the month” at the USATF Convention back in December and allegedly she threatened to castrate any athlete who dare to defy her shitty rules.

“Let them eat cake”- Stephanie Hightower

After doing minimal research, I’ve found out why Stephanie is such a terrible person. She’s a buckeye.  Figures.

I just threw up in my mouth.

Ian Stewart and Stephanie Hightower have become the most evil couple in sports.  I would call them the Bonnie and Clyde of Track, but Bonnie and Clyde actually had some style/swag.

Like Clyde, it seems Stewart is also whipped.

They are as out of touch with the US athletes as Mitt Romney is with the average American.

I’ve been honestly trying to comprehend why the two would be such dicks about the situation.  I mean, they’re head officials in track and field.  I love our sport to death, but damn these two have egos like they were head NFL/NBA mangers/officials.  Let’s be real, you’re not ever going to make 10 million a year being a major official/president in track, so give up this head trip or continue to ruin the image of track and field in the US.

ELECT SOMEBODY NEW IN 2012! SUPPORT THE MOVEMENT!

Next post on Thursday is a much happier interview with Olympian Emma Coburn!

PS- There are only about 8 t-shirts left on the webstore!! Link in the post below or the link on the right!

    True shit, it’s hard to argue with their logic. I’m glad these two, especially Symmonds (see his interview yesterday morning?) are tackling this issue.

    And happier… you got an interview with Coburn?!?! Major props, self-deprecation pays off!

      You do know Stewart is the guy who nipped Pre at the line for the bronze in ’72. He was a dick then, too. Not because he got third, but because he treated Pre like a fool for trying to go for the win.

    You had me until the Mitt Romney comment but you came across as classless and stupid as those you commented on.

      Hi Stephanie, didn’t like this blog post about you??

      Also, if you really think Mitt Romney is in touch with the American people and you are offended that I said otherwise, you are a fucking idiot.

        No, it was a well written post until you brought up an Obama talking point, and parroted it like a complete idiot.

        Crap! You discovered my secret! This entire blog is secretly used to put hidden liberal messages into the readers heads! Obama 2012!!!

      Carr back?

    hey man, couldn’t agree more with ya, on another note do plan on making a different shirt design, perhaps without a fat kid struggling to run on it?

    • eatrunswag July 18, 2012 at 3:54 am #

      Thanks!

      Yes, once these shirts sell out and I have money to buy more shirts. So in a month or two I’ll print new ones

    I just discovered the joy of rolling over the images and seeing what you named them.

    • eatrunswag July 19, 2012 at 9:58 pm #

      hahaha oh god… I didn’t realize that happens

    Fascinating post, spoken like a true 16 year old!

    USATF IOC etc are killing the sport, let the athletes who make your events possible make some money. It’s sad to see great athletes living like bums.

    I actually worked with Stephanie Hightower in another capacity … And I will confirm she is a CONTROLLING – My Way or HighWay DICTATOR !
