Greg Oden = Christmas Tree
Like Greg Oden, the Christmas tree starts the season tall, strong and full of promise. But before long, they're both decaying in front of your eyes and you eventually have to just put them out on the curb with the trash.

The Gym: Issue #3

A guy I work with goes to the same gym as I do. I don't know him real well but he is older than me and is married. I know this because I met his wife at a company outing. He also wears a wedding ring. But only at work not at the gym.
A few times he's made the point of telling me it's because the weights scratch his ring. Fine by me. I don't care. I'm not the marriage patrol and I don't care about his jewelry care.
But then I saw him in the gym parking lot making out with some lady who also goes to the gym. Who is not his wife. I guess he didn't want to get sweaty skanky on his wedding ring either. What a guy.
I work at a gym in Indiana. There are several wanna-be guidos who work out at the gym. One day while I'm working out after work, I hear one guido say to another, "Dude, I'm bringing the Hulkness." I couldn't keep this to myself. "Bringing the Hulkness" is now the unofficial slogan of the workers whenever we have to get pumped for something.
Like most gyms, my gym makes everyone carry a towel around with them and wipe off the equipment when they're done. A guy near me was on the leg press machine, calmly finished a set, and wiped off the seat. I noticed then that his white towel now had brown on it. The guy crapped himself pushing the leg press.
He tossed his towel in the hamper and left and I debated telling the gym staff about the machine but decided not to because it was just so gross I couldn't talk about it. But I've never used that leg press machine since then.
