Like many people in America, we have been watching a little bit of the Olympic trials. One of my sons asked me when they were going to do the “running thing with the guys that pass the rubber chicken.” Huh? He insisted that he remembered reading about a 4-man relay where the participants passed each other a rubber chicken; he even modeled the poses as he remembered them from the book. While we all enjoyed a good laugh from this, it did give me an idea–wouldn’t it be more interesting if the relay involved passing along a live chicken? Now that would be fun to watch!
