The first pictures of Allison Stokke handling her pole for the Cal Golden Bears surfaced just about everywhere yesterday. But nobody's mentioned that the true freshman, despite looking less tan and a bit thicker in the britches (not that bloggers know anything about these kinds things) had a good showing at the MPSF Championships in Seattle last weekend.
In the women's pole vault, freshman Allison Stokke set both the school indoor and freshman records with her mark of 13-1.00 (3.99m). Fellow teammate, junior Katie Morgan [not the porn star (NSFW) –GEd. ] set the same mark, as both pole vaulters provisionally qualified for the indoor championships. Stokke and Morgan tied for third in the competition.
I won't be the first person to say that this pic is a bit of a letdown. I mean, it's not like I'm gay outside of the whole poetry slamming about other men thing. Fortunately there's a pic of Cal's Katie Morgan in that first link, and as you can see she's built like a brick shithouse. But in a good way. I can't wait until her father threatens to sue everybody for invading her privacy, right before a whistle-stop media tour. What does "whistle-stop" mean, anyway? — Monday Morning Punter
