cheetah

In addition to finding another excuse to put Betty White on television, Nat Geo Wild’s Big Cat Week is having a special in which Chris Johnson and Devin Hester will race a cheetah. Johnson never got the race against Usain Bolt that he’d been angling for for so long, so this will have to do instead.

And here is a very bored-sounding quote from Devin Hester:

“The whole idea of racing next to a cheetah for Nat Geo Wild was a very unusual proposition,” said Hester of the Chicago Bears.

Indeed.

“Man vs. Cheetah” airs in November, and is shaping up to be the best “football player versus an animal” race since the time Chad Johnson raced a horse.
