And so you come up with a name like "Snowball" to describe what happens as a result...

They let a stray cat out on the track and the first guy to run it over wins. Second guy gets second, Etc. It's like a "win and out". Then there's the "Fluffy" where you chase the cat and try to pick it up.

That's abusive. Or maybe not.

If the cat is named Fluffy, then not.

Good point. Naming a cat Fluffy is damaging enough.

Here is a cat that comes to my house a couple of times per week. Even though I like her, she refuses to pose with medals around her neck. She had the nerve to follow me into my house the other day. I was carrying in bike stuff (what else is there?) and I heard a loud meow. I had to pick her up and carry her out. I could contribute her to the game.

Sure looks like "Fluffy" to me.

Growing up, our cat was called "Plaguey"; short for Bubonic Plague... Black Death... He would've torn the tires off the bikes. :)

Out. Cut my knuckle up on my first finger last night cleaning a cleaver. Wouldn't stop bleeding so I made a 2:30 AM ER visit. Wearing a big bandage.

Why do you hate track?!? Just kidding... hope it heals up quickly! By the way, saw photos of you doing team sprint with Jay... you were on a Fuji Elite. Did it break, or was there something you didn't like about it?

Likely story... I bet it was more like this....

Trying to pick up Fluffy off the track (she is quick) would be like catching the Golden Snitch in a game of Quidditch.

Couldn't get a good fit in the aero position...proprietary seat clamp had too much setback. Having similar issues with the Dolan only in the other direction in the "mass start" set up.

I should have never called you. Must have really pissed you off.

Stitches?
