Kim Jong Il....the N. Korean Soccor team lost 7-0, and rumor has it...they will soon be:
As most people know Kim himself is an excellent athlete:
In his first-ever round of golf, he shot a world-record 38 under par... including another world record 11 holes-in-one! And even though all 17 of his bodyguards were eyewitnesses and swear they saw that go down, for some reason, the round-eye devils at "Guinness" fail to recognize either record.
And Kim's prowess doesn't stop there:
Hmmmm, he kind of reminds me of someone here on the board....

I too, am amazed that Kim Jong Il has never gotten his true due on the golf channel or that he has not had Tiger challenge him in a match.
I wonder what the penalty would be for one of his bady guards "not witnessing" his miraculous accomplishments?
Didn't Chairman Mao have a little athlelte in him as well, like swimming the Yellow River from one end to the other? These Asian guy really are good! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

Mao was considered the equal of Johnny Weissmuller and Mark Spitz.
While JW was the best of all the screen Tarzans, he also:
Weissmuller was one of the world's best swimmers in the 1920s, winning five Olympic gold medals and one bronze medal. He won fifty-two US National Championships and set sixty-seven world records.

I knew about Weismeuller's Olympic fame but was nore interested in Jane's near naked self in some of the versions of the movies. I never saw anyone who remotely convinced me they were Tarzan beyond him playing the character. I mean, Lex Barker? Come on!
I know Weismeuller plaed Jungle Jim. I don't guess he ever got a part where he didn't grunt a lot. Sort of like some of the Russian Tennis Gals today!
For years, i din't knwo there was such an animal as a Cheeta, I thought the only Cheeta was the Chimp. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

There's only been one believable "Jane"

I may have been too young to actually lust after her but I think it was the start of something for me. If you put her up against someone like Bardot, she was probably not that much but to a very young man with fantasies of a woman alone on the escarpment in Africa, she was the one! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif
She is probably the reason I still like black and white movies. and can you believe we bought the crocs rolling around with Tarzan as well as the Hyppos always eating the black guys? I never remember the English guys falling to their deaths off the cliffs but scores of brothers taking the fall.
Of course, Johnny could swim! He was his own version of Mark Spitz but, like may great ball players of the er, there was no free agent rule and he would have struggled to make a living after the Olympics if not of the movies. Audie Murphy did much the same with his war heroics and they really were heroic. I guess the real deal was, of course, our Georgia golfer, Bobby Jones, a real class act before athletes found out how to really steal second, become tatto canvases and roll over twenty feet on no diving needed line drives! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif
Reality check, what if Joe D. had beat hs wife to death or shot up a nightclub. Now, there will be a new conspiracy theory that Joe did "off" Maralyn. I said too much. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif
