Highlandtown Olympics

Hope you are all ready for this weekend. I would post everyday with a countdown but I don't want to clog the blog. You're a blog clogger, Charlie Brown.

This weekend is the Highlandtown Olympics. We have dubbed these as such, and the Highlandtown Raven will be our official mascot.

Attendees are req'd to wear some kind of outfit. You can be creative, but you'll look like a herb if you are dressed normally. So most likely my friends from home will be herbs.

If you need add'l info on Highlandtown, please reference this wikipedia site I stole from Emily.

Ceremonies commence at 7pm. We should be back from the race around 2:30. If anyone is interested, I'm thinking Kisling's could be a fun afternoon food source.

i'm way too old for dressing up.

RM said...

Don't think of it as dressing up, but rather the embodiment of the Olympic spirit.

Jen said...

I need costume ideas.

RM said...

some suggestions:

blue blazer, khaki pants/or those shorts that go to your knee, a hat and a flag or something (could represent a nation in the walk of nations or be a judge/official)

dress like pocahontas/sacajewea, represent the USA

spandex. anything spandex

white lab coat/glasses - drug tester

ooh!! can i be jeff gillooly?

Alyssa said...

only if you have a crowbar and take lots of pics so I can relive this event the following day.

RM said...

Yeah this is the type of creative shit I'm talking about! Like someone could be Oscar Pistorious, cut off your legs and use those Cheetah prosthetics, or someone could be Derek Redmond and invite your dad to the party and he has to carry you around all night.

Or you could be the Russians and just not show up, since after all, they didn't show up in 1984.

Who's gonna be Misty May, so I can take them home?

RM said...

You know it's funny you mention Misty May, because Kootman called me up this morning and wants for me and him to be Misty May and Kerri Walsh.

Knowing now what your intentions are, I probably will not do that.

HAHA... Yea, I think im gonna pass! Are we going to have an awards ceremony?

RM said...

We're going to have many awards ceremonies. We'll present awards for the top 3 at the mile race, top 3 at the XC race, top 3 costumes, top 3 drinkers, etc...
