00:00 - 00:03With Andrew, John and Kevin back
00:04 - 00:05and the addition of Matt Butler
00:05 - 00:07we look good to win 4x8 at states.
00:08 - 00:12They can individually place high in the 800m
00:12 - 00:15and possibly the 1600m races at states.
00:17 - 00:19If our sprinters pull their weight,
00:19 - 00:21Bloomingdale has a shot at winning the entire state meet.
00:24 - 00:26Littleton...
00:27 - 00:28The sprinters...
00:31 - 00:33The sprinters can't even run sub 12 in the 100m.
00:34 - 00:36None of them even qualified for districts.
00:53 - 00:58Anyone on the football, basketball or lacrosse team, please leave the room.
01:13 - 01:15They can't run sub 12?
01:15 - 01:17I was in the Navy 40 years ago and can run that fast.
01:18 - 01:23No wonder our football team can't win a damn game.
01:25 - 01:28We finally have distance runners that can compete at states
01:29 - 01:31and we're going to miss out on a
01:31 - 01:34school title because these sprinters have their shoes tied together?
01:34 - 01:37Do I need to put the bowler in the 100m from now on?
01:37 - 01:40Or maybe the kid that tripped at pre-states?
01:40 - 01:42Littleton, bowling a 300 is quite respected in the...
01:42 - 01:46I don't give a shit if he got a 300 in Wii bowling
01:46 - 01:48Littleton, there's no need to...
01:48 - 01:52And don't get me started on plyometric days.
01:53 - 01:54It's a waste of their time.
01:56 - 01:57 Our sprinters need to be running
01:57 - 02:00100m and 200m repeats to prepare their fast-twitch muscles,
02:00 - 02:03but instead they're playing in the long jump sand pit like babies.
02:04 - 02:08Even that one kid in the weighted vest can run faster than them,
02:08 - 02:13and I haven't put his name down for a meet to this day.
02:14 - 02:16We were primed to make an impact at states,
02:17 - 02:21but now people have to CTRL + F to find Bloomingdale on the results page.
02:27 - 02:29I was less stressed in the Navy,
02:30 - 02:34and I had bullets flying at me non-stop,
02:34 - 02:36all while I was running sub 14 in the 5k.
02:41 - 02:42Pure speed....
02:43 - 02:47this school hasn't seen pure speed since 2001.
02:48 - 02:53All I want is to win states one time before I retire,
02:54 - 02:56but that Coach Booth,
02:56 - 02:59his players couldn't even catch a cold.
03:00 - 03:02Put Andrew in pads this fall and he'll be their best receiver.
03:04 - 03:07Don't worry, Donny "Such An Athlete's" spot is safe.
03:14 - 03:16I can't get a win anymore.
03:19 - 03:23The kids can't even perform when it's my birthday.
03:25 - 03:26Weighted vests...
03:31 - 03:33Maybe that's the secret to winning.
03:40 - 03:46You know, I've never seen that kid in the weighted vest lose the warm up run.
03:46 - 03:49Maybe I should learn his name.
03:53 - 03:56No, that's a terrible idea.
