Some of you might be questioning why a Frappe writer would waste his time with low profile sporting events like the Chicago Marathon, especially in the middle of a football season, not to mention a World Series. Some of you might speculate that it’s an effort to take the focus off my bold predictions that are in question, in which most of you would be correct. So in order to restore my pride, I think I should take a moment to point out another’s humiliating moment.
In this particular case, it comes at the finish of the Chicago Marathon as the winner crosses the finish line, or more accurately slides through the finish line (and for once the video link is not from You Tube). While I tip my hat to this guy for finishing first in a marathon, what a bummer to go down in history as the guy who won a race and was knocked unconscious at the same time. It’s a shame that shows like America’s Funniest Home Videos aren’t still around or else we’d be seeing this clip right next to this one (or this one) every time they broke into a sports montage.
Congratulations to you, Robert Cheruiyot; you’ve made the Frappe Wall of Shame.
