The “+ More”
Can we talk TV for a minute? Specifically, Mad Men? Who watches? I finished the first season last weekend and feel very ‘meh’ about it. The IMDB ratings are high and it wins awards every time I turn around, so part of me is saying, “Hang on and give it a little more time.” But the other part of me knows that if I cross into season 2, I am committed until the end. Does it get better? Opinions appreciated.

One Direction who? I’m old.
But I can be a fan if they jog in jorts and jeans.

…not because of a great bicep and back workout but because of this guy lifting IN JEANS:
(notice the strategic use of mirrors to get the shot)
And this guy:
(Yes, he is sleeping! I know he isn’t in jeans but the picture is funny as hell. )
Thanks to my gym friend, Sarah, for snapping the second picture. To get her to forward it to me, I had to “come out” about this website to her (Hi, Sarah!). I counted and I think she is only the 10th person that I know/met in my real life that knows about what I do here. As I always do when I tell people about JoggingJeans.com, I started with “Don’t judge me.”

Kelly, 3 Zigs and a Dog blogger, sent me these pictures of the Dodgin’ in Denim team that plays in her dodgeball league. Their uniforms are VINTAGE DENIM!
If you look closely, there is an amazing amount of awesomeness on the bodies of these players.

Are you on the Biscoff Spread bandwagon yet? If not, let me be the first to tell you – no, ORDER you – to get your hands on a jar of this stuff. Your life will never be the same. It is put-your-tongue-in-the-jar-to-lick-out-the-last-little-bit delicous.
I also don’t want to go to Biscoff rehab alone.

I should be an investigative reporter. I can piece shit together and get the story told. Especially when it comes to something that I am passionate about – like marathon runners in jorts.
I stumbled upon this picture in a gallery of photos dedicated to last month’s Twin Cities Marathon. After unsuccessfully trying to blow up the photo to get a better look, I wondered to myself, “Are those jorts?”
Then I found the blog of a spectator at the marathon who shared this observation:
11:45 – A guy wearing a headband, midriff-exposing t-shirt, and cut-off jorts (that is jean shorts for you non-hip folks) runs into our station. After he grabs his third Dixie cup of Corona, I wonder if we will need to cut him off. But after pounding it in record fashion, he runs off – on pace to finish 30 minutes faster than I ever did while wearing proper running shorts and properly hydrating with water and Gatorade.
1. I gotta find this jort-wearing, Corona-drinking hunk of man.
2. CNN, call me. I can start tomorrow.
