Who have you seen in traffic? NOW WITH BONUS!

This morning I thought of two foosters on my commute. I passed a black Dodge Nitro with custom plates that read MNBABE and minutes later, a paper company truck crossed in front of me at an intersection. The company logo was a goat's head with large horns inside a blue ball.

Who did I think of? The first person to answer correctly (I will tell you if you are correct) and then PM me a mailing address gets to partake of jsharr's balls. If you have already had the "pleasure" of handling my balls, you may be exempted from having to do so again. That is up to your discretion.

Do you ever see things in your daily life that makes you think of another Fooster?

whoa - i take it back. I saw a funky 80s bmx bike once that made me think of Fuzzette

usually things I see on my commute remind of non-bike related things like sleeping, eating, hot showers, massages, vacations, roads with no traffic, winning lotto, better guads beneath me, etc.

The other day I did see some tourists over at the supermarket...

They were parked in the fire lane with two wheels up on the sidewalk, effectively blocking both, just so they didn't have to push a cart through a snowy parking lot...you know, like everyone else had to. I was bummed I didn't have my camera as it was an unbelievable display of self-centeredness and disregard for the inconvenience of others and the law...at least until one saw the particular state of origin on their license plates.

The entire event was a Foo moment that had me wanting to share with all of you.

Hey, it was cold! And I needed vienna sausages RIGHT THEN. Did not have time to park correctly. After I left there, I drove to the bottom of a steep grade and stopped in the lane to put on my snow chains.

I know I saw some women (on television) of Foo standing along the sidelines during the Chargers' game last weekend. They had great smiles and great... uh pom poms.

My friend dropped her iPhone and I thought of Crassic. Every time I see nuts I think of Brian. Every time I see pretty open space to ride, Danil8r comes to mind. When I see a rodent in a pic or in a vid, I think of Stacey.

I'm kind of like a bull in a bull fighting arena when in traffic. all I see is red and have this uncontrollabel urge to kill whatever is moving in front of me.
