    The Weak Link's one week challenge for unashamed public display of bibshorts.

    C'mom. You Know you want to do it. Floyd did it, Lance did it, INdurain did it, even Lemond did it.You know what I'm talking about.

    In the seven days all 50+'ers are required to post at least one thumbnail of themselves in bibshorts. Awards will be given for the best overall appearance, with lesser prizes going to the folks who augment features of their anatomy for whatever effect they wish to have on the audience. A special "no jersey" class will be created for those who feel they have large enough pects to compensate for that god-awful beer belly you've sported around these parts. All poses must be on road ride, including the very beginning and the very end. All extraneous extras must properly color-coordinate. No Photo 'shopp 'trickery is allowed unless you can sneek it past us.

    I intend to post my photo as soon as I get my new Lemond. I got bibshorts, Mountain bike jersey, and a whole lot of mismatched bike socks that can, with some training, resemble a boa constrictor.

    I've worn bib shorts since I bought my first pair ca. 1985. You people should get over your fascination with others that wear them. This is starting to get weird.

    You just can't do this with Fred shorts. With bibshorts, it's a snap.

    Post-Ambien posting is really going to get me in trouble some day.
    Nonetheless the challenge still stands.
    I personally don't know what the hang-up is, so to speak. But I hate to think of all my senescent brethren going through their golden years with unnecessarily chapped hides.

    <<Hey, who posted that picture of Phillip Fulmer?>>

    I'd like to say two things to Blues Dawg. Seven straight possessions. Seven touchdowns. Not bad for a good ole boy!

    Next year after Bobby Bowden retires and Mark Richt takes his place, you Dawgs will hire their own lard a$$ed coach!

    Go Vols!

    I reported this image to your server (host?) (whatever) as offensive. Only in jest, of course. Of course. Just sayin.
