Mega Dittos meets Ben Johnson


The Captain is changing course. After another week of not gaining weight I am going to start walking less and running more. Ben Johnson was dubbed the "fastest man in the world" after winning the 100 m final with a record time of 9.79 seconds during the 1988 Summer Olympics beating the great Carl Lewis. I am going to start with wind sprints. Who knows how far I will go.

Hey Jeff, thanks for the encouragement. I just got back from the gym, walked another mile on the treadmill. Good luck to you too.

Carl Lewis, Ben Johnson, Rush Limbaugh, and Jeff Rhodes. Now thats a race worth watching. Who wants to bet on Rush and Jeff?

"After not gaining weight" you quote...I thought this was a weight "loss" sight. Are you trying to gain weight? What are you trying to do? Even if you gained a pound, you'd be doing something at least. Right now you are doing NNNNOOOOTTTTHHHIIINNGGG.
Figure out what you are doing Captain.

Jeff Rhodes can eat 100 weiners in 9.79 seconds.

And to you Jeff, The only thing stretching is your stomach!!!

Sprinting to the ol' fridge does not count as exercise.

Just face it fatso - you will be fat the rest of your life. There is absolutely no hope for you or your fat friends and family. Just give up. Statistics do not lie. Fat people stay fat.

Hello there Jeff. This is Phillip. I work at the seismic institute in Anchorage, AK. We measure seismic activity around the globe (ie earthquakes). We observed a 4.3 tremor in central California yesterday afternoon. The epicenter apears to be 20 miles south/southwest of Fresno, CA. Is it possible that you were out jogging yesterday afternoon approximately 13:12 Pacific Time? Activity was recorded as far east as New Jersey and as far west as Tokyo. We have ruled out an actual earthquake since the nearest fault line is 60 miles west. If you were out jogging or simply having sex, that is fine. Just simply advise us. We were concerned a small nuclear weapon may have been detonated or we were struck by a mid-sized meteorite. Sattelite images cannot confirm either. Please advise us of your activities yesteray between 12:30 and 13:30 pacific time.

Who would win a race between Rush and Jeff? Well it depends. What are the stakes?
If it is a line of coke it would be rush, if it is a bucket of KFC it would be Jeff.
p.s.
Just a tip before you start racing Jeff. Pep Boy has a special on shock absorbers. You better get the heavy duties
