Duel in the Dunes

Being a life long fan of the New York Metropolitan's it is my job, nay, my duty to do everything within my power to distract you from the fact that today begins The 2009 World Series; with two of my least favorite teams competing. I will distract you with an announcement!

100 DAYS until the running of Tybee Island Half Marathon...otherwise known as the Duel in the Dunes.

Duel in the Dunes? Snail, you can't have a duel without a proper adversary! (Cue villain music)Hailing from the mountain's of North Cackalacky, I give you Carolina John. What began as friendly banter amongst fellow bloggers has turned into an all out battle, a duel if you will. (Incindiary comments from the villainous CJ)

February 6th, 2010 we shall settle this like men on the streets of a sleepy little beach town in coastal Georgia. Most of the locals (okay 95%)will not have risen from their drunken slumber before I will have run CJ into the ground of their fair island community. As you travel over to CJ's blog you may read reports of being "tired from the Half-Iron" training or twinges of "hip pain". Don't be alarmed faithful readers, just a case of another carpetbagger from "North" Carolina...

Consider yourself warned Mr. Flynn... 2 hours...

As a Red Sox fan, I feel your pain. And I look forward to this Duel in the Dunes.

My allegiance to the team from Flushing has obviously had no impact on their baseball success this year even though I did get the email from Stubhub to join the Mets on their 2009 historic playoff run only a few weeks ago ( they, only a few hours later, issued an apology to both Mets and Cubs fans for mixing up their email distribution lists). I only could back Philly if they were up against Boston though. Yankees in 6. Jeeeeetttttta MVP.

I haven't decided who to back in this sure to be epic challenge between blogerati. I know CJ will do well at B2B but that could be either a blessing or a curse. The big question is for who. Looking more forward to the trash blogging.

Mapquesting Tybee to see you both.
Duel in the Dunes... sounds good.

RockstarTri said...

I was wrong. Even though he batted over .400, Jeter didn't win the MVP. Sorry.
