Aha!! So Bianchi and Liquigas are each owned by the same colorblind dego!

Anytime I see someone with a large head, they are referred to as Fredhead. My wife's family and the Rodriguez family are very close so it is a coined phrase in my house.

That's not celeste. It's a very different color.

Yeah, that's not anywhere near Pantone 12-5507
It's closer to 14-0123.

guys, guys ... anyone who knows anyone who's anyone who knows Bianchi can tell you that their definition of celeste can fall anywhere from "kid splitpea puke" to aqua "Exxon-Valdez" marine (yes those are patented color names now owned by Crayola). And when you're colorblind it all looks the same anyway. Geesh!!

Oh and Fredhead!! ... I love it.
