The first two events in the 2011 Traveling Twosome Olympics are in the history books… and those who were rooting for Char to win every event this year are going to be sadly disappointed. The first event was a game of Chess. You’ll recall that the first time we played Chess, Char had never played the game before (and I had only played a handful of times). I was teaching Char how to play as we began the game! Embarrassingly, she won that match. What better way to kick off the 2011 Traveling Twosome Olympics than a rematch of that event?
The game took us hours to finish – we played over a three day period. In the end, I came out victorious and took a 50-0 lead in the overall score for this year’s Olympics. Char’s fans – when they heard the news – were greatly disappointed. Guest her win in that first game was just beginner’s luck after all.
The second event in this year’s Olympics was a Stare Down competition. Admittedly, I entered this event as the underdog and I fully expected to lose. Let’s face it… anyone who has watched our TV Show episode, “A Day in the Life of a Professional Wrestler,” knows that Char is capable of being MUCH more intimidating that me. I recall during that episode when we were “trash talking” each other before the match just how ferocious she could be with her look. Yeah…. I expected to lose this event. Also, I happen to know that Char is infamous for stare down competitions. Long before she began her now notorious arm wrestling career, she was beating any and everybody in stare down competitions.
To my surprise, to her surprise, and I’m sure to your surprise… Char did NOT win this event, either. Nor did I. After 27 intense minutes, we agreed to a draw. We both added 12 points to our overall Olympics score.
After two events, the score stands… Louis: 62 Char: 12
Here is a three minute video recap of the stare down competition:
