A message to runners everywhere: shutttttt uppppppp: ". And on Sunday, 40,000 weirdos will take over Broad Street with their ear-to-ear smiles and beaming zest for life. It’s disgusting. Not to mention the band-aids covering their nips. This weekend could be the greatest sports weekend ever -- the NFL Draft, NBA and NHL Playoffs, the Kentucky Derb, #MayPac! -- and yet 40,000 people have decided to run a race?!?!"

This was an awful lot of words to say 'I don't like thing'.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I wish to report that these hot takes written by a person who goes by a name that starts with "The" and ends in "-ster" are luke warm. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

If you think the NFL draft is worth watching you have negative authority on what other people should do with their time.

I clicked through to see if this was as obnoxious as I thought it was gonna be and: yes.

I don't run nor do I intend to do so in the future, but it seems to be a nice way for people to keep active and make friends, and everyone I know who does it talks about it basically the normal amount people talk about their hobbies.

FWIW, as a runner, it's pretty clear to me that this person is a runner.

Dear The Evster --

Attached is a letter that we received on May 2, 2017. I feel that you should be aware that some asshole is signing your name to stupid letters.

Very truly yours,
The Internet
