Smug yuppie Snow Joggers give TV interview, then fail

So it’s the Snowpocalypse up here, and in nearby Portland two joggers paused to give a TV reporter the benefit of their wisdom, and to expound on the great texture of the snow for running.

At least the Northwest has some random experience with snow. Down in Atlanta not long ago, it was a real-life game of bumper cars. My favorite part: when the bystanders hoped and prayed the Nissan 370 didn’t get munched. Warning: one man says a bad word a few times, if you’re offended by such things.

Be safe out there.

    My husband tells me Portland’s Worst Weather Bike Ride was cancelled due to bad weather, or something like that.
