It’s been a long time dream of Mr. Flinger’s to hold a “Leisure Olympics”. Today that dream comes true.
A Few Good Friends of ours will be competing in what will become a national, nay, a world-wide phenomenon. That’s right. Hold on to yer britches (that’s with an ‘R’, people) because today marks the first annual LEISURE OLYMPICS 2008!
:: the crowd goes wild :: much clapping :: much cheering :: possibly some fireworks except only the lame little legal kinds so like a sparkler or two lights up ::
:: Athletes come marching in wearing matching colors in teams. Children are seen running amok in the background. It’s the most anticipated event of our lives. .. ok.. or maybe like since two weeks ago when we decided to do this. Either way IT WILL BE HUGE ::
Can’t compete? Don’t feel left out: For Rules and Regulations, please follow along below. For pictures, please come back tomorrow. For a tweet-by-tweet account, please follow here starting at 4:30pm PST.
In the mean time, I’ll be warming up and stretching for the beer relay and obstacle course which is sure to kick my arse.
17 guests here now.
I am sure this will go world wide very soon. I’ll be sure to follow on Twitter.

Oh my gosh, you are hilarious. And, I wish that you still lived in Oregon so that I could come and bear witness to this.
Also, this is a damn good idea for the big 3-0 that I have coming up.

I am coming to your house this afternoon! If traffic is good I should be there in time.

I want to come play! Dang it..but I would be disqualified because my husband doesn’t drink alcohol. (Yes, he is indeed BAT SHIT crazy!) I still would totally love to come watch and compete. And it is totally over before my bed time too!

I was looking for events like couch sitting. But maybe that’s just the rain.
Sounds like so much fun!!

That sounds like hilarious fun.
Especially the beer part.

Where I come from knitting is a Olympic level event. Why no knitting?
How about spectating? I spectate with the best of them.
It does sound like fun~

Sounds like fun. Go Team Flinger.
When I saw Leisure Olympics, I thought you were going to compete on who could relax the most. I could totally win that one. I’m very tired.

I surely wish we would have known about this terrific day of olympic events. We certainly would have driven up there for this kind of entertainment and taken the gold home! mwah
