An idea for the 2008 NYC Marathon (possible sticky maybe?)

This could be a good idea, or worthy of a 8 car pileup.

Next year, Wackbag should sponsor a board member or a group of board members to run in the NYC Marathon for the express purpose of following Zoe Koplowitz...and making sure they stay behind her the whole way, and doing whatever it takes to finish the marathon AFTER her, no matter how long it takes. She finished this year at 28 hours and 45 minutes this year. Whoever should decide to represent us needs to be prepared to spend at least 36 hours in this race.

Understand, people, that this will be a battle of attrition. Zoe's modus operandi is to wait everyone else out. We have to be prepared to wait her out. It would probably be bad (the best kind) of PR for an able-bodied participant to just stand there and wait behind her. There is a way around this though: Find a good sport who is in even worse shape, and have some other people make sure he or she doesn't die along the way.

What's Scoli-Opie up to?

This has been suggested before, but nobody's ever gone through with it.

I'll set up beer tables along the route for whoever wants to do this.

That would be so fucking awesome. But it would be a pain in the ass 36 hours???

We'd have to plan a little farther ahead, just to make sure everyone can be where they need to be for those days.

BTW, does MS Zoe run:icon_lol::icon_lol:in any other marathons?

And in today's heartwarming story: Zoe Koplowitz finally beat someone after years of finishing dead last. Here is Pat Battle with her Zoe live from the finish line...

If that happened, she'd probably try to shoot herself. It'd probably be funny to see her teeter around on her crutches trying to balance herself just right so that she could put the gun to her big dumb head.

Hmmm. Where to find a fat, wheezing mess for this...

Pat from Moonachie. Tom will probably be dead by then. I still think it should be a handicapped fellow though.

Big A would do just fine. Tippy Tom's a good candidate too. Homeless people do nothing but walk. His feet will probably be gone by the next marathon though. That could be even better.

Have you seen O&A's audience (me especially)? We would have a hard time keeping up with her.

Unless you fell and rolled, then you might have a chance to win the whole thing. :action-sm

Is rolling legal? Is there good prize money? Cause I'll do it. Right I after I have Zag change CM Mark's name to "Pot Calling You Black".

It involves walking, so Fred's out.

Sandy Kane? And then pay someone about a grand to sniff her ass and snatch afterwards. That part would have to be show-sponsored.
