(Olympic women's marathon is on the TeeWee over the bar...)
Me: "There's a sport that's not made for spectators."
Dinner companion: "Maybe if they let you scoot along on mopeds to watch. Or if they ran it in a stadium..."
Me: "But it'd get pretty boring just watching people run in circles for hours."
DC: "I don't know, Indy and NASCAR seem to do okay."
Me: "Yeah, but marathon runners don't occasionally just cartwheel down the track and burst into flames for no reason. Now that would be some excitement."
