Gotta root for "Boston Strong"!!

 

I'm glad they decided not to be gentlemen the 2nd time after that little b$tch stole the pen right out of their hands.

They were clearly in the cab first.   I'm glad they didn't get eliminated but they have to pick up their game!

I absolutely love swift and instant justice! Those blonds had it coming and I'm quite satisfied that the firefighters were to ones that gave it right back to them.

Snatching the pen to sign up before the firefighters didn't help the blonds get further in the game - and I'm glad they're out.

Glad they stood up for themselves at the taxis. However, don't see them lasting that long. They will mis-read a clue or get outran to the mat.

Because they spent so much time at the 'Pancake race', I was surprised they had any strength left for the 'Punting' , but they muscled through without as many problems as the other teams.

Sorry to see them eliminated but they've pretty much been in the back of the pack and with an ankle injury like that (which was not going to get better without rest) this was going to happen.

That was a nasty sprained ankle, it hurt me just looking at it. Ouch. I'm surprised he as able to continue for as long as he did.

Those guys are tough, they just didn't have enough luck on their side.

Scott was in no shape and their negative force anchor.

 

Michael would've gone farther with ANOTHER partner.
