My New “A” Race is The Tough Dodger

Like millions of other Americans whose favorite team failed to make the Super Bowl last night, I was as interested in the commercials as the outcome of the game.  This commercial from Subway was the best one of the night.  Triathlon combined with dodgeball?  Hell yes.  Sign me up for the Tough Dodger today.  (Or maybe sign me up as a volunteer dodgeball thrower.  Coming out of the water, there’s usually one or two people who I wish I could crush with a dodgeball.  And yes, I’m thinking of you “Watch it!  No one touch me!” Guy at the Oakland Triathlon Festival.)

P.S.  Here’s a free training tip for the Tough Dodger:  every now and then, practice dodging wrenches instead of dodgeballs.  In the famous words of Patches O’Houlihan, “If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball.”
