Revenge o' the Nerds/Geeks

I was gonna post this yesterday but Blogger was throwin' a hissy fit and wouldn't recognize jpgs when ya tried to upload them.  That's still true in the case o' this image, so we just blatantly copied and pasted from the source.



Yup, that's ME!  Hell, everythang still works... and pretty well, too.

From the Shoebox blog, of course.

  2. Started life as a jock. Became a geek in later years. Everything hurts but I still have the action figures.

    Never did have the body of an Adonis though. Unless Adonis was a rather short, chunky dude. I think not.

  3. I came thru my HS football days pretty much unscathed, but a life-time of competitive tennis as a ranked player thru college and beyond in the AF has left me with bursitis in my right shoulder from the serving action and knees that are just now starting to get tired of carrying the "extra weight." (lol)

  4. PS: There is also the psychology of it all, Buck. Someone who trained religiously (and denied himself much of the pleasure that comes from a hedonistic lifestyle) thru most of his younger formative years tends to "go to seed" rapidly as one avails one's self of the pleasures of life--making up for lost time once "the uniform comes off"--after so many years of hard work and denial. Thus many tend to give up sport all together for ego reasons if they can't compete at their former high levels of performance once they "lose a step."

    "Geeks"/"civilians" by contrast,
    are not embarrassed by less than perfect levels of athletic/training performance in later years, so often continue with efforts to "stay in shape" for many years into their declining years..

      Ah. So THAT'S my problem! I'm speaking of my mental condition, of course, including the lack of embarrassment about the state I'm in. ;-)

  8. Yeah, we geeks get eye problems and suffer from non-exercise types of things a lot more too.

Just be polite... that's all I ask.
