Help me get on the Amazing Race

I'm a long time bike commuter and cyclist and me and my co-worker want to get on the Amazing Race. Check out our video and tell me if you think we have a shot.

Thanks for your support =]

Several people have viewed this, but nobody has given any feedback =[
Does anybody think I've got a shot or am I out in the cold all alone?

I liked it. Ignore the hater. People who disrespect teaching and teachers embrace ignorance in more ways than one. I'm not a fan of the show, but good luck to you. Keep up the good work, kids need teachers who give a damn.

If you play up your contrasts, you might be able to succeed.

Sorry, no can do.
nothing against you, but I am personally boycotting anything that is a reality show.

Will you have time to do the show and still teach? I think that teachers have a committment to their students. Is this something you can do over the summer break? If you answer these questions to my satisfaction I will vote for you.

jsharr, I appreciate your questions. The filming takes about a month and takes place in November, which means that we'd (me and my teammate both teach at the same school) miss some school but not too much. Obviously commitment to our students is important to us. We teach at a small school and are actually really close to our students. Our whole school is 100% behind us in this and I think the good it would do for our school and community make it really attractive to us. I don't know if that answers your questions, but I'm happy to keep checking back to answer more questions. So fire away

I appreciate your comments if for no other reason they keep my post being seen by others. I'm not really asking for your respect and actually my ego isn't wrapped up in my forum persona, so think what you want. As to my post count, that's kind of funny if I have too much time off I'm an unemployed looser, but my post count is too low to merit proper respect? I'll admit that I'm a lurker more than a lurker than a poster and the search button works great.

Reality blows. Seriously. I am anti-reality. Always.
