Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Athletic Aspirations Edition


With the 2014 Winter Olympics in full swing, I find myself once again amazed at the feats of strength, agility and overall rubberiness exemplified by the athletes.  As a man who occasionally has trouble getting into compact cars (especially the ones with the automatic seatbelt device designed to choke you out like Kurt Angle with a grudge), I occasionally find myself thinking how nice it might be to do the flippity floppity stuff on the uneven ring bars (or words that make sense in a sports context.)  Then again, I might also like being able to leap over ring ropes like Sin Cara or swinging across the skyline like the Amazing Spider-Man, which in turn begs today’s query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) even thinks it might be cool to be as flexible as Melina Perez, though her signature splits look extremely painful, asking: If you could have the (purely physical) athletic abilities of any single person, who would you choose and why?
