Finally a Bike Race to Care About


tour_de_donut5Why is it I keep learning of these events I would DOMINATE too late? Greenville, Michigan held a prestigious biking event over the weekend, forget the Tour de France and instead gear yourself up for the Tour de Donut!

With 150 riders enlisted, the 30-mile race has designated glazed doughnut stops every 10 miles. For every doughnut downed by a rider the race organizers took 3 minutes off his or her time.

The most important rule, no vomiting; hurl and you’re disqualified.

Ryan King took home the championship, winning the award for most doughnuts eaten, tying with two others with eating 10, in addition King had the fastest overall time.

Presumably he developed adult-onset diabetes immediately after he stopped pedaling.

The Slanch Report has started an online petition asking the MLB Network to air the Dock Ellis no-hitter he threw on June 12, 1970 against the San Diego Padres. The moment was a seminal piece of baseball history and is certainly worthy of being rerun.

Please join us in this cause and sign the petition below so we can all share in this special and fantastic moment of baseball history. THANKS!
SIGN THE PETITION HERE! AND PLEASE TELL YOUR FRIENDS AND PASS THIS ALONG!
