Above Average Thoughts From An Average Guy
Scotty didn’t know…
Yesterday Scott Downard finished first place in the Cowtown Marathon annually held in the great state of Texas. Fortunately for the guy who placed second, Scott never registered to run in the Cowtown Marathon.
Downard was taking place of a friend who was unable to race but did not fill out the proper paperwork to fill in for him. He just took his number, strapped it to his chest and went runnnnnninnnnggggggg. A 26.2 mile run that is.
Moments after crossing the finish line, Downard was disqualified, leaving Cowtown fanatics to wait an additional 6 minutes before the second place contestant (now first), broke the tape…again.
When confronted by officiators after the race, Downard took the ruling like a champ, vowing he would return the following year to show Cowton who’s the boss.
Lets just hope he signs up the second time around.
PS: I don’t care that Downard did’t sign up, if the 2nd place guy finishes six minutes behind the 1st, I don’t care if the winner didn’t pass the physical. Give him the damn trophy Cowtown.
I leave you Gump, my Gump I give you.
