Not to be heartless, but I am SOOO glad that I declined drinking until we got to RPC's place. Damn, it would not have been as funny as J5 and Josh are taking it.

So Tink, this Saturaday Ride that you were thinking about?

Thanks for the ride along guys, it was a lot of fun and nice to get outta town for once. Maybe next time me and the bottle will celebrate AFTER the races since that whole standing upright thing is pretty important to coordination. seeya later.

So I flatted last night on my way home. Their was a big drop off in the road and I was in my line. To make matters worse I didn't have my tire levers, but Spud came to my rescue. Thanks again. I own you a beer.

If you're serious,I've got like $5 in pennies that I haven't gotten around to putting through the coin machine at the bank. You're welcome to them.

All: I think we might want to do some pre-staging from now on for polo. I kinda got the feeling they may actually start watching us more carefully. And what was up with that woman with the cop? Undercover? Anyone remember seeing her around the park before?

Sorry to get all political up in here, but whats your definition of gay?
Do you mean gay as in happy or gay as in homosexual?

You all hear about the brick throwing post on craigslist? Has this already been covered elsewhere? I didn't see any reason to start a new thread as this only concerns DC folks. I was told this is 11th street where it goes up the hill next to cardozo hs. Info?

More about that on dcist.com: http://www.dcist.com/archives/2006/0...a_height_2.php

Then there's this from the Logan Circle area: http://loganupdates.blogspot.com/200...iscreants.html or http://dcist.com/ (go about two-thirds down the page...)

matista, that CL posting is f'ed up. i've had some kids try and rip me off my bike while riding, but having a brick thrown at you from a balcony is damn near deadly.
