First of all, if you aren’t a nerd/geek and you get sex on the reg, you probably won’t like this post. And I don’t blame you. You can just leave now and come back Friday for an interview with one of the Milrose Mile runners!
But if you have no shame, like yours truly, and at the age of 20 or higher (hopefully not too much higher) you still think Pokemon is the shit, well then indulge in some nostalgic dorkiness below. You probably won’t get a lot of these jokes without a decent/basic knowledge of Pokemans.
The premise is simple: If some of the most famous runners/running coaches/fans were Pokemon, what Pokemon would they be?
Alan Webb- Slowpoke
No further explanation needed for this one.
Steve Prefontaine- Pikachu
A super overhyped Pokemon/the most recognizable Pokemon name by non Pokemon fans. Why overhyped? Well he’s not a bad Pokemon but if I wouldn’t choose him for my Elite Four team.
Will Leer- Alakazam
Derek Rubis- Ditto
Silas Kiplagat- Mudkip
OTC- Team Rocket
Galen Rupp- Meowth
Alberto Salazar- Giovanni
Matt Centrowitz- Scyther
Kara Goucher- Eevee
Marion Jones- Mewtwo
Dwight Stones- Koffing
Anna (Willard) Pierce- Ninetales
