Week 4 of The Amazing Race 17 has come and gone, and all we have left are the memories of riding dogsleds in the summer, carrying blocks of ice, and a double toe tap elimination.   Here are all the screenshot’s from this weeks episode, many that didn’t make it into the recap post.

This gallery is so great, it made Claire cheer in excitement!

Ahh, no more sickblogging for this week’s recap of The Amazing Race, but don’t expect me to suddenly start writing any better!  I need to have a spell and grammar checker just to sign checks, so don’t expect to hear birds chirping and harps making beautiful music when you read my writing.

Enough about me, we have a race to cover!   Last week, Team Youtube (Michael and Kevin) finished last, but were spared by a non-elimination leg, so they were set to face up against a speed bump as well as start the race last, tough to overcome for them.  However, it didn’t take long at all for The Amazing Race to even the score for them and made it so all teams were booked on the same flight to Sweden, which btw, note to Team Tattoo.. yes, you do have to go to the Airport to get there from Africa.

Ahh sick blogging, it’s kind of like drunk blogging without all the fun and embarrassing moments the next day.  I’ll still probably sound like a drunk person, but I won’t be able to look back on this in a few days and laugh, only weep silently with my memories of tissue boxes and cough drops.

Oh well, enough about me, there was a race happening Sunday night, and some of you may have missed it due to CBS’s amazing programming ability.   You’d think after all these years of having back to back NFL games on Sunday, they’d put in a show before The Amazing Race that can be clipped or completely removed should the games run late.  Don’t they know DVR’s don’t actually watch what they’re recording?   So, if you were one of the unlucky ones who didn’t set The Amazing Race to record for an extra hour, this blog is for you!

Last week on The Amazing Race gave people a few lessons.  First, if you’re ever using an over-sized slingshot to fire watermelons at empty suits of armor, you may want to wear a goalie mask.   It also taught us that despite having a great education, if you can’t find one of the biggest landmarks in the World in a country where everyone speaks your language, you’re probably not well suited for The Amazing Race.

With teams traveling to Accra, Ghana this week, which is a city on the western coast of Africa, how will teams fare?  Keep reading for the full review of The Amazing Race 17 – week 2.  (also, how do they come up with the places to go to?  Seriously, do they just throw darts at a map of the globe?)
