I never thought we'd have a "hotness"-type thread in which the female posters come off as more crass than the male ones. Then again, when TX Runner Girl chimes in, it's more or less assured that she'll be bringing the big-time stupid. Who gives a shit about how well-dressed anyone at this "banquet" was. These people are in IN to friggin' race, not put on a fashion show for the dubious benefit of slow message-board addicts. Men may be pigs, but the cattiness and envy of women is usually worse.
When I saw that SMU pic I thought it the team was beating unlikely odds to have all seven of its varsity runners be blondes. Even in Texas. But as it happens four of them are from Europe, including three from Scandanavia. Talk about culture and climate shock.
