Dadchelor Weekend: The Dadchelor Challenge PDF Print E-mail
Written by JB

As part of our Dadchelor Weekend, we are participating in a Manathlon in order to judge ourselves against each other as men and prospective fathers. In a wider sense, I guess this is the point of sports. But I digress. Anyway, the next event up is something I call 'Dadchelor Challenge'.

The basic premise in creating this event was to incorporate something that seemed almost legitimate like some lame baby shower game, but also involved drinking beer, hilarity, and the potential for injury. Here is what I came up with:

This event is a race, in time trial fashion. This is because it would be expensive to get 8 different racers (or even more than one or two) running at a time. As it is a race, the object is to complete the challenge in the shortest possible time. Order of contestants is determined randomly, so if any advantage is to be gained in going near the end (and watching everyone else fail), that advantage is given randomly to the people near the end.

Each contestant starts at the starting line with a baby carrier (Baby Bjorn is a popular brand, but there are a lot of them) lying on the ground, and a watermelon, also on the ground. Nearby is a broom, bat, mop, or some other similar object. When the timer says 'Ready, Set, GO', the contestant puts on the baby carrier and secures the watermelon in the carrier. Then, the contestant spins around the broom (dizzy bat style) a set number of times (say, three). The contestant then runs to the other end of the course, and must drink all of the beer from inside a baby bottle (through the nipple, without damaging/biting a larger hole in it) and then run back to the starting point. Breaking the watermelon during the course of this event results in disqualification.

Basically, I am not sure what winning this event means, but I am reasonably certain it doesn't have any bearing on your readiness to be a father. However, it does sort of involve a few baby-related items, so your wives/baby mamas may like the fact that you've included it.

Let me put it this way (do I smell a column cnmoig on soon? Geez...)Say your girlfriend/wife/significant other is one of those who secretly enjoys Valentines Day. She recognizes the commercialism in it, but who doesn't enjoy being feted over? So she plays off the holiday but secretly pines for something surprise-worthy, something that will get the goosebumps going. You, being a male, forget all about it and simply hope a hug gets you through the day.No, you don't HAVE to get her anything. It's not a requirement. Nobody's telling you to do it. But you know that if you do, you'll be able to demonstrate what you feel inside, presumably something more than a hug can communicate.So here I am with Beckham. He doesn't HAVE to go out of his way to promote MLS. He doesn't HAVE to do anything other than strap on his boots and kick a ball for 90 minutes once a week, sometimes twice. But, as an MLS fan, will you really respect him for taking $250 million from the league, holding the banner for the sport in this country and acting so nonchalant about it as to require a search committee to find his tangible contributions to what it actually means to promote the game in this country? It's not even close.If I was MLS-as-Beckham's-girlfriend, that relationship would've ended long ago. He's a shitty partner.

So glad to hear that Dustin is doing well and applying <a href="http://qzmabl.com">hiemlsf</a> in school and a goal for the future! I have listened to each of your podcasts and while I don't have a teenager (yet!) my heart always went out to you as a Mom, and how frustrating it is to see your child struggle but also knowing if they only applied themselves they could do and be so much more. So I know you're all much happier these days, and I'm sending nothing but positive thoughts and energy your way that it keeps up all the way through to graduation!Tanesha (CraftyGardenMom blog and podcast)

KB: Good advice. Eating too late does not aid digisteon. Also, try several little meals during the day. It is easier to digest four tiny meals than two large ones. Are you aware that certain wines are more acidic than others? If not, do a little research. You are on the right track! http://irohqyhehyz.com ysefbmyen [link=http://alwoqe.com]alwoqe[/link]

Unquestionably imagine that that you stated. Your favourite reason seemed to be at the internet the simplest factor to understand of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while other folks consider issues that they plainly don't understand about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest and also outlined out the entire thing without having side effect , folks can take a signal. Will likely be again to get more. Thank you

You just never know, and even on coach outlet store online when you're not looking for trouble, trouble could find coach factory outlet; in the form of a good ol' fashion fisticuffs.This coach outlet store roundup mourns Peaches Geldof, celebrates tiffany jewelry's marriage, embraces spring, and reveals the face of a new coach factory fragrance.Even if we're not Fashion tiffany and co bound, we're always seeking coach outlet online. This time it comes in the form of michael kors outlet online, classic stripes, and statement heels.The true religion jeans is always chic and exact. There is such a sense of michael kors outlet in wearing steely gray, especially when you do it with coach outlet. What you might not know: what a day in the life of a pro celine outlet really looks like. If you're unsure, I'll make it easy for you to decide: the coach factory outlet is YES.The tasty treats from toms shoes company are hittin' the spot with their sweet breakfast-y flavor and adorable elephant shape.alexander wang shoes to the present day, the alexander wang bags features stunning costumes but is still not dramatic enough to do justice to its glamorous subject.So, when celine bags offered me the chance to stay at a hotel, have a consultation with a sleep doctor and have my own little sleep sanctuary, that was an offer I definitely wasn't about to turn down.The toms usa has just opened a new website, so now you can see what you've been missing out on.
