VIDEO: "I am getting pelleted!" Marathon Guy Is Cleveland's Answer to Double Rainbow Guy


1 comment

If you missed it, Sunday was the annual Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon. It also snowed, a springtime meteorological anomaly in which Northeast Ohio's faithful road racers took no delight whatsoever.

The race proceeded, despite the shitty conditions. (Twas "the most Cleveland race ever," proclaimed one baffled participant.)  

This guy, though — "BogeyBean" — was dumbfounded. 

Here's the money transcript from the video above: "There was a huge kaboom — KABOOM — of lightning and thunder and lightning. Look, I have steps. I mean, it is, I am getting pelleted. I am getting pelleted! Oh my goodness."
