Looks Good On You Nick

Because I don’t do anything with my life except watch TV and surf the Internet, over the Halloween weekend I was reading a bit on The Amazing Race 17 and came across this article about the fake drama during TAR 15 between the Globetrotters and the gay brothers.  The editing during that season made it to be this huge rivalry, but the reality was those two teams actually got along pretty well and it was never shown that way.

Well, fast forward to last night and right away the teams were told to they had to travel to St. Petersburg, Russia via planes, trains and automobiles.   It was built up that the travel was half the challenge, especially when they aired a little drama of Team Romance (Chad and Stephanie) struggling to find a cab to get to the airport or they’ll miss a flight!  But, this was more fake drama as all teams had plenty of time to get on the train together, and then plane, so I felt it was going to be another let down episode, but I was wrong, it was actually a good one with difficult challenges.

I may complain about football screwing up the Sunday night schedule every other week until they finally fix it, and seeing as it’s been like this for many years now, you may hear a lot of complaining.   Ok, maybe I won’t complain every other week, but it sure is mind boggling.  Luckily this week it was only about 15 minutes late or so, because it was very important to hear Andy Rooney’s random thoughts!

This week teams were heading from Sweden all the way to Norway, and if you didn’t know geography, it’s still on the body of land that looks like a flaccid penis tea-bagging Europe.  (I’m sure many will be rushing to google maps right now to see what I mean)

Stephanie Looks at Chad

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.
