    Caption contest (post-Olympic edition) 2/27/06

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    After winning the Gold Medal in the super mini downhill event at Timber Ridge Ski Hill, Michaelskis questioned if he should take on Tommy Moe or Picabo Street.

    The gold medal was from my ski team winning the beer league at Timber Ridge Ski Hill two years ago
    Invest in the things today, that provide the returns tomorrow.

    Showing incredible poise and restraint, Michaelskis has fought a two year battle to resist the urge peel back the foil and feast on the chocolate of his "gold" medal.
    Dude, I'm cheesing so hard right now.

    Since slacking is now an Olympic Sport, Michaelskis brings the gold medal home.

    "Let's see: I measure the height of the grass in that yard and they give me a medal. I can't figure it out either. I wonder what they'd give me I actually did some work around here?"

    Oh, Ca-nada............
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    The ends can justify the means.

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Suffice it to say he was up against formidable competition in the Stan department.

    It's pretty grueling. First, there's coffee drinking freestyle, trash can basketball, FAC posting (both 1 hour and 2 hour events), 100 Meter squirrel chase, 'creative' CDBG low/mod timesheet fillout.
    And that's just in the winter games!
