Why There's No Olympic Medal For Body Builders (And Other News about Baseball)

Conversation Du Jour between Kelly (who loathes Baseball) and Dave (who Loooooves Baseball):

Kelly: Wanna watch the Olympics?
Dave: Oh, please no! The entire Olympics are comprised of people sliding from one place to another... They slide down hills. They slide on ice. They slide down ice chutes... They slide lying down. They slide standing up... They slide big rocks...
Kelly: Kind a like Baseball?
Dave: What?
Kelly: They slide into first! They slide into second. They slide into third. Sometimes they slide feet first. Sometimes they slide head first. Slide, slide, slide.

Then, Dave just looked at me, kind of cockeyed. Then he didn't say anything else. He did, however, make me watch, in lieu of the Olympics, a TLC story about a female body builder who didn't *exactly* deny steroid use. "No one gives us credit for the exteme athletecism body builders exhibit..." said the she-male, deep voiced, waxed and polished woman with 2.8% body fat and breast implants.

I just want to watch someone slide down a hill. Badly.

    Oh, good one on the sliding in baseball. You're good.

    I'd watch with you. Where else can you see all these sports at one time? Come on, curling? Cool.
