Carolyn came second in her accidental trampolining competition. Apparently, during her second routine, she landed on one foot off her backdrop and they wouldn't mark her after that, so she got a really bad score.

That's ridiculous! Landing on one foot has got to be harder than landing on both. It stands to reason (no pun intended). I mean, if Tiger Woods had won the Open yesterday standing on one leg, we'd have said he was a genius. If Dago Maradona had hopped through the entire England defence beforehand, we might have stopped harping on about the Hand of God incident by now. If Jonny Wilkinson's last-second drop-goal to win the 2003 Rugby World Cup had been made without the use of his left leg, we'd have said it was the most amazing drop-kick ever.

It was a fix. Carolyn was robbed.

  1. Did you mean Dago Maradona instead of Diego? It's a bit offensive, although the dimunitive, barrel-featured, cheating druggie probably deserves it.
