I have seen some rather idiotic Olympic events over the last several days such as: Men's Water Polo involving of a bunch of dudes tossing a rubber ball around in a swimming pool (no horses were involved), Women's Hand Ball was another surprise with the ladies racing around on a big wooden floor playing catch with a rubber ball.
The fates were obviously kind to me since I had the good fortune to miss the walking events for both men and women. Mr. Ruth did pique my curiosity though, so I turned to the most reliable source of knowledge on most everything. I Googled on the Internet where all information has been vetted by the Ministry of Truth.
Not only was I able to watch a moment or two (all I could stand) of this riveting event, but I also stumbled upon an instructional video that might benefit those thinking of participating in the next Summer Olympics. Enjoy!
