Food/Sports Challenge

This is a video about an interesting event that I saw today on Sportscenter. This type of race reminds me of a challenge that I issued to one of my coworkers in the summer of 2003 at the Fairhope Public Swimming pool. I challenged another lifeguard to a new type of swimming competition. I told him that I could swim ten laps before he ate one gallon of ice cream. He accepted. Since that quiet summers day, I have been left with many questions. How the heck did I lose? Was there foul play involved? Should I have tried to continue this event and have launched an intense marketing campaign?

The mind is an amazing thing and boredom highlights this fact possibly more than any other situation.
