Goodbye Christian Boys!

Dec 6, 2011 | The Amazing Race | 6 comments

So often Christian’s embarrass themselves (myself included) when in the eye of the public.
Andy and Tommy were the exception.
You know me and my “Where Have all the Cowboys Gone” mantra… good Christian men are few and far between.  And in this culture, Christian or not, it seems you are hard pressed to find men that don’t whine, snivel and complain over challenges that life brings them…
Andy and Tommy were (are) the exception.
How bummed we were tonight to log on to cbs.com only to see the “rad” Christian, pro-snowboarders eliminated thanks to cab drivers with flapping jaws.
How badly we wanted them to win.
And yes, I’ve still got it bad.  After what, 19 seasons, I still lust over going on the Amazing Race.  I never, ever tire of this show.  I never ever tire of imagining how Joel and I would handle each and every Road Block.  I never tire of imagining how viper-like competitive I would be…
But anyways,
Andy and Tommy – thanks for not coming off like total Christian morons – which is how television usually portrays believers – thanks for being normal, kind, competitive and totally inspiring human beings.  Joel and I are truly sorry you aren’t in the final three.
  It’s been a pleasure.

    Girl~ we think exactly alike! Loved these guys (and the cowboys, too). The elimination was unfair, but they accepted it with grace.
    I was really hoping they would win!

    If you ever need a partner for the race, I’m your (old) girl. But you will have to do the bungy jumping, sky diving and eating of live creatures!:~O (And, oh dear me, I couldn’t wear the skimpy body building suit ~ I don’t think they come that large and I’d die showing all my strech marks!!!) I’m an excellent back seat driver, though. Quite a few years of practice under my belt!:~D And not too many good racing years left, so we better try for the next season! ;~}

    Awww, now would being a viper on the show be considered christian-like? I’m sure you could pull it off in the right way. πŸ™‚

    We love to watch Top Shot. This season a young Christian Camp director won, and we were so excited! He did it with such grace. When the others were spewing out obsenities he spoke calmly but firmly. When others were plotting and back-stabbing, he was only concerned about his actions. In the end, he smoked them all, and won money for his camp and his growing family including several foster children. Now that’s class.

    I used to follow this show, then I gradually stopped. I’m going to have to watch the back-episodes “on demand” I loved watching the teams try and navigate in foreign countries πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I’m sorry your favorite team was eliminated. You’ll see them at the final episode, when all the teams cheer on the winner πŸ™‚ Have a great week. Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather πŸ™‚

    Oh, I missed last week and am sad to hear the boys are out. My husband applied for one of the early Amazing Race shoes . . . but wasn’t chosen.

    Fondly,
    Glenda
