I'll let you connect the dots.
I'd like to connect some of Freida Pinto's dots, if you catch my drift.

So everyone outside of the US says it has to be the guy who played cricket, and then Jordan, Ali, Gretzky have been sprinkled in there? Sounds fine to me.

Your current NASCAR points leader:






Now I'm not saying Tony's anywhere near Sidney Ponson/Bartolololololo Colon level, but the only time anyone will mention a six pack in reference to him is when talking about how much Natty Light their sister/wife drank while watching him race. Race car drivers are certainly athletes, there is a physical toll, but by no means are they elite athletes in the traditional sense.

What was the name of the cricket in Disney's Pinocchio.

He almost said "Bradman" before coming up with Jiminy.

A strong argument could be made for Edwin Moses.

Have there really been so few good Jewish athletes that you have to go back circa 5000 years to find one? Come on, man. Holding two cement slabs with rules written on them is technically not sport.

But he probably would've had to have been fit to do it.

Oh, no doubt. I'm not denying his physical conditioning - dude walked in the desert for 40 years. But walking? Not a sport. Nor is talking to a bush. Nor making a staff turn into snakes. They might be games, but not sports. And the parting of the water - badass? Hell yeah. He's a better showman that David Copperfield, Kriss Angel and Doug Henning combined - but water parting is not a sport either. The closest I can give him is baby kayaking, but we're never told where he actually placed. He may have come in dead last for all we know - or, he may have set the goddamn Baby Kayacking World Record for fastest run down the Nile -we'll never know - but even then...c'mon? Baby Kayacking? That's barely a sport. And even if it is, I'll go home right now and throw my 4 week old in a kayack and send him down the Husdon, and if it takes all night we'll break that goddamn record, whatever it may be - I don't need no divine intervention, I got balsa wood - but does that make my month old kid the greatest sportsman ever? No way. No way. Get real. Come on.

I missed very few things during my hiatus from interference, your sense of humor being one of them.


Now fuck off.
