My Left Foot

We interrupt this vacation story to announce the winner of the Olympic trials for the Trip-Over-a-Chair-and-Break-(or seriously sprain)-Your-Toe Diving Team. Solonor Rasreth scored a nearly flawless round with his unique run through the living room holding a cup of coffee. His flight across the coffee table showed brilliant form–made even more stunning by the spray of shattered glass and the unique Wookie-esque bellowing that is his trademark.

“I was going for the Mexican Whooping Fall with a half twist,” Solonor said. “I guess I came up short. I think it wound up being a Corsican Agonizing Death Flop, looking at the replay, but I’ll take it.”

Though Mr. Rasreth has lost the ability to stand, he remains optimistic that his left foot will thaw out from the ice packs in time for the games in Athens.

    What’s that commercial where the pets move the furniture into the path of the unsuspecting homeowner carrying a tray of food?

    If you don’t thaw in time for Athens, perhaps you can provide the color commentary.

    poor blog daddy. rest that toe. I do that from time to time myself but it’s usually not a wookie bellow. It’s more of a curse filled scream fest.

    Oh! I hope you’re better in time for Athens — the competition won’t be the same without you.

    I was enthralled by the commentary, and at the same time owing with you. Hope recovery is quick.

    The Russian judge gave it a 9.9 for technical merit, but only a 6.8 for artistic merit.

    You were robbed.

    You’d better not use this as an excuse to get out of doing baseball.

    my blog’s broken for the moment, so given the fact that my entry is similar to yours (minus the olympics twist), i’ll post it here… just kidding…

    anway, looks like i’ll be going to athens with you (if either of us can make it there)… I placed in the misterious-ankle-sprain-that-nobody-really-knows-how-it-happened event. I got a 9.9 from three judges… the fourth one gave me a 6… (he was from russia and had bigger misteries in mind, like where all his nukes went…)

    long story short… I feel your pain… ow
