|How can I get this job?!?|
Yesterday we attended the state cross country championships, thus ending another high school cross country season. I chose to include this photo of the course officials because they were causing me serious bicycle envy. Find Meego?
It was a great day for racing. Sunny, a bit cool, not too windy. This course is known for it's brutal hills and I will attest to that. We hardier spectators had to ascend some precarious slopes to get to the good observation/cheering points. But it was a small price to pay in the name of mom support and photojournalism.
Cross country, I think, has gained in popularity over the years. I vaguely remember my own high school having a team, but they didn't get much publicity. If not for Wolfgang's participation, it probably wouldn't show on our radar much. I think one of his teammates put it well when he posted...
"Tomorrow the the cross country team is competing at state, if you like watching extremely repetitive and monotonous sports, come on down. Also the runners tend to dress scandalously, so that's a plus..."
|Is that girl talking to me?|
What's she saying?
I did manage to get a couple of action shots of Wolfgang, who made a decent showing along with the rest of the team. They are happy to be 1st in the city, 2nd in the region, and now 7th best cross country team in the state.
In other news, remember that thing that Magnum ordered that we so looked forward to testing out? It arrived in a heap and Magnum commenced to making me stupid? WELL, looks like the situation has been resolved. We get a full refund, plus we get to keep the piece of crap that was sent for scrap parts.
In the meantime, Magnum apologized for making me stupid (yes, he does read here occassionally). I assured him that he didn't really make me that stupid, since most of the time, I wasn't listening to him.
