See? Dumb. Just dumb, and that makes it a clean sweep last night – the only team that acted intelligently in terms of their travel negated that intelligence at the very first opportunity that they had.
I hold out great hope that these teams are smarter than they initially appear to be. At the beginning of every season there are so many teams that are out there racing that we really only get the briefest snippets about most of them. I would be foolish to suggest that the information we have about the teams thus far allows for a complete representation of who these people really are, so maybe the truly brilliant ones just haven't been given a chance to shine in the final cut of the first two episodes. I do have a suspicion however that had a team done something ingenious, even if they were in the middle of the pack during a leg, we would have seen it.
I'm looking for things to change in future weeks. Jeff proved himself to have the potential this week, and had he not turned his brain off he and Jordan could have won the leg. Maybe there are other teams out there who are about to wake up and make this truly exciting. We'll have to see.
