sorry. yeah.
you have to sign up for an ESPN account. i know it's a pain, but 1) ESPN keeps track of the brackets for us, which is super helpful, and 2) you could actually win the $1,000,000 tournament challenge as a friendly extra to all this.

brackets are fun. you can choose who you think will win, or you can have the better mascots win, or you can have the pro-choice states clobber the anti-choice states, or you can have every team that wears orange win. it's goofy fun.

which design? the Ides of March? Isn't that tommorrow?

Speaking of which, some ideas.


Who wants to ride to the crab place in bethesda, crescent trail north, then indulge in maritime grub, then south on sideroads or perhaps back down the CCT.

Ride and dinner at my place, watch "the harder they come", or another bike movie.
The only problem with the harder they come is that it is equally a low budget movie third world movie, reggae movie, gangster movie etc.

I want to ride in the park more, but I work at the farmers market 10-2 on Sundays. (Takoma Park) so the beer and cheese rides are out. Allthough, maybe, if you guys want...come by the farmers market, we are selling cheese. Really great cheese.

Right in front of Polly Sues.

But, If you all would like to ride on Saturday, I would like to do the climbing loop in the park, or beach drive, then up to Bethesda and down the CCT?

What about an alternative alternative mode of transportation, canoeing when it gets warmer?

Or a canal ride, fat tires and beer?

Anyone been up to the airport bar in college park?

Azalea days in the arboretum?

We have two going away parties coming up...Julie is deserting us to favor the windy city and Dave is gonna be busy being domestic (at least for the first six months).

Anyone have any plans yet?

the return of the pirate classics will come with the return of spring-- the margarita rallies, the rum runners... generally we leave it up to individuals to plan pillages and we all just come along. name your date, name your ride, people will be there.

margarita rallies: that's what I'm talkin' 'bout.

Make that 3 going away parties: this here kid too. I'm headed to Europe in May and then San Francisco via the Tetons.

also, RedDeMartini: who are you?

need to bring anything?
bring a helmet - john will inevitably run into someone, don't let it be you
bring a camera - to capture the kings of comedy in action, flikr it the next day for instant gold
bring your A game - lets see what you got. ($5 on the new guy - blind bet!!)
bring a smile and good attitude - I ain't got no time for posers and h8rs


other than that??
a sixer of sparks plus and a 40 of colt for me thank you very much

see you tomorrow brother.
welcome to the pirates
