    Floyd and The 50+ BF Criteria

    It's about 4 hours until Floyd Landis is in the start house for Stage 19...

    Regardless of the outcome of the Time Trial, since Floyd needs hip replacement surgery, I think he's earned entree into the 50+ Bike Forum. Besides, he seems like a good egg, and he likes riding his bike. Whattya say, should we let him in?

    Only if he turns into a fred and gets a comfort bike.

    He can keep his TDF bikes as a memory of how good he used to be.

    Really, I think if we start making exceptions for this guy, all kinds of Riff Raff will expect in..... we have to draw the line somewhere, and it's pretty clear to every one that it's at 50 years of age. It's the exclusivity that makes it desirable..... sorry Floyd, you're a nice guy but just don't qualify.
    Carpe who?

    It's too late; riff raff slips in here all of the time. Look at all of the pre-50 plussers that openly admit their status and still post. Imagine how many others lie to get in!

    In fact, I'm really a well known 23 year old lingerie super model who just likes to hang out with old farts.

    Everyone 50+ gets in free.

    Everybody else has to provide an official blueberry pie to the forum first.

    I still say Blackberry pie. On second thought, that doesn't sound so good for all sorts of reasons.
    Dead last finish is better than did not finish and infinitely better than did not start.

    Sure, Floyd can be a 50 plusser - in about 23 years. But for now, he is most definitely THE MAN!!!!
    The more you ride your bike, the less your ass will hurt.
