Since football season is in full swing, I thought it would be fun to compare NFL teams, and their qualities, to types of runners you may come across. It's my first attempt at humor, so give me a break, please.
New York Giants - Old guy who's faster than everyone.
Philadelphia Eagles - Looks like a hardcore runner; twists ankle on a curb every year.
Dallas Cowboys- Leads a group of aerobics and stretching before the race; doesn't run.
Seattle Seahawks - Wears a perfectly coordinated outfit of a neon green tank top and cropped running tights. Can’t stop twitching with nervous energy.
San Francisco 49ers - Barefoot runner.
St. Louis Rams - Despite the race being in St. Louis, they show up in Los Angeles without telling anyone.
Green Bay Packers - Wears a really sweet pair of old school Nikes and is fast and smooth.
New Orleans Saints - The life of the race. They have a three-deep fan section with a band and full bar.
Cleveland Browns - Misses the race because they were out partying.
New York Jets - New York Giants younger brother. Less old and less fast.
New England Patriots - Wins the race, a feel good story, but later a video shows he blatantly cut off part of the course and is disqualified. Then the runner complains to the race director, and they are given the title back. Sound familiar?
Miami Dolphins - Bullies other runners and gets themselves into the elite corral. Then throughout the race, they are a pushy, tailgating runner.
Buffalo Bills - Always in the lead for the final stretch but misses the finish line (wide right).
Washington Redskins - Guy in a Trump t shirt.
