      Bud Light presents...


      {Real men of geeeeeene-yuss}

      Today we salute you, Mr. Name-Dropper of Every Running Race on the Planet
      You Ever Ran.

      {Mis-ter "Whaaat-race-did-you-say that-I-of-courrrrrse-have-run?"}

      Yes sir, you are the encyclopedic accumulation of all names, all titles, all
      websites, all knowledge, all distances, all terrain, and whatever everything
      else is that pertains to whatever race whatever person within earshot has
      just mentioned. No matter what it is, no matter how long or measured or far
      away, or even how impossible it is to get to and participate in once you do,
      you have already been there, done that.

      {"I diiiiiid 'The Goofy' the fiiiiiiiirst yeeeear it was in-ven-ted!"}

      Awesome. Just awesome. Someone mentions their next vacation is to Bangkok,
      Thailand, and you have been there and done *that* marathon-of-sorts, too.
      Even if it was only the "Kiddie Quarter Mile" for children under 12 during
      the Expo, you did it as a child--in 1955--before public footraces were heard

      {"I wonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn it whennnnnnn it was still called Siam!"}

      Uzbekistan 10K? Sure. Two years ago. Mozambique 50000 Kilometers? Yup.
      Last summer. Ride & Slide Across the Swiss Alps? Jawohl! The Saudi Sixty?
      Right. The Singapore Sing-For-More Marathon and also the 100K Relay? Of
      course. You ran it when you were 30 and did both races simultaneously by

      {"Youuuuu should've seeeeeen ME be an eight-mem-berrr team!"}

      Every single possible marathon, ultramarathon, triathlon, Ironman,
      double-Ironman, dodecahedron-triathlon, and round-the-world footrace (twice!
      on hands and knees!!) that started when you were a little boy? And is still
      underway? You've done it. Yep. Finished it NEXT week. You are the only
      human being in the galaxy that has, already, participated in and triumphed
      over every possible athletic event in and around and within twenty-five
      light-years of our humble globe.

      {"IIIIIIIIIIIII donnnnnnn't like to brag or annnnnnnn-y-thing."}

      So crack open an ice-cold Bud Light, Oh Captain Cocky of the Starship
      Braggadocio, because the only possible way you could *ever* be one-upped in
      the name-dropping department would be by YET ONE MORE young woman who's been
      there and done: Tiger Woods.

      So what we want to know is, where are all the ten-thousand women who
      supposedly "did" Wilt Chamberlain?
