Ahhh yes... Paul's, the unfriendliest bike shop in the Montreal area. Actually, I think the guys who work there are great, and it's a pretty congenial shop... it's Paul himself who I find unfriendly...

Okay guys, take it easy here... for one thing, this is an all-ages forum, for another, this is getting perilously close to pretty tasteless...

As for real business sponsors, It would have to be Shiner Bock Beer, and Smokin Jo's Custom Tattoo. Smokin Jo has joked about sponsoring me, but the result would be a two piece tat on my calfs reading " Don't follow me" and " Cuz I don't know where I am going".

As for celeberty sponsor..... Elizabith Hurley.

The "new" Vanilla coke? That is something as old as Cherry coke. Back in the old days, the ice cream shops use to have Chocolate, Strawberry, cherry and vanilla cokes to offer. But yes wow.

I'd have to be sponsored by my local pizza parlor, or by Mountain Dew. I'd also be proud to wear a Johnsonville's Beer and Bratwurst jersey if they made one!

I would like to be sponsored by Budwiser for the simple reason that...

My greatest accomplishment in bicycling is bicycle commuting full time. Oh ya, and touring is another, you know, 'really big thang' I suppose. No racing yet.

So, anyway, I would like Budwiser to sponsor me so that the Budwiser girls to cheer for me and pour their attention on me when I roll into work everyday. They could jump up and down and squeel, "OOooooooh, look girls! Here he comes! Go, Mike, Go. We are so happy you are here today to help create jobs and make the lives of so many people wonderful. (All the while smiling big Brittany Spears smiles with their straight white teeth) . Then I would say, "Thank you, ladies, now I must go inside to save the company, and quite possibly the world! Farewell (and see you at lunch wink wink )"

It would really make me look forward to coming to work even on days when I would rather do something more productive
