As we face an unprecedented lull in our book club schedule (Champions take vacations) and the summer races toward record temperatures in New York and beyond, I feel the need to stay motivated in these bleak five weeks without Champions Read. What inspires me to turn off the endless stream of televised soccer? What says, “Hey Champion Jill, put down that tub of Kozy Shack Original Rice Pudding?” A hearty dose of competition, of course! If this video of a muppet staring down a professional drummer doesn’t encourage you to find your inner champion, then I feel nothing but sweet, sweet contempt for you, poor reader.
