Ha I just spent a week in NOLA. I'm glad my wheels and ass could take the abuse.

Yeah, especially at the beginning, where the guy is explaining something like it's a news report.

I'm surprised wet foo commuter, didn't give lite-blue bike fishin' man the boot for lack of an early warning - kept his cool though. Maybe wet-foo is still in shock, or wondering iffin they just waxed the floors at the office..
