PS. It reminds me when I ran (and won) the intramural mile at Princeton as a senior. A couple of the young studs on the track team showed up and were way ahead mid-race. I yelled out, "If you beat my ass, you're in trouble." They dutifully slowed up and let me take my deserved glory (there was an actual rule that varsity athletes couldn't score points in intramurals).
This is a sad brag post. A mildly embarrassing situation that you’re actually somehow proud of. “Look at me, I won an intramural race by whining at my much better opponents until they let me win! Pretty cool, huh?”
