MS 150 "City to Shore" Fixed Gear/SS Team (Philadelphia)

Hey everyone, I decided to start up a new thread from the "south jersey/philadelphia dudes and dudettes" thread so people can see that we have started up a Fixed Gear/SS Team for the MS 150 "City to Shore" Ride this September.

I am hoping to get a lot of people interested and print up Tshirts for the event. Right now the existing team is named "Team Schmeam" and last years shirt design was printed on powder blue Tuxedo Shirts. I am hoping to do something interesting again this year. I will post more info on this thread later, but for now, if you are interested in joining up with the team, PM me your email address and I will send out an email with ALL of the details.

This is a great ride for a great cause... its also VERY flat and perfect for fixed gear riders.

YES! So I'll pick up the housing thread over here. I plan on reserving a room for yours truly. I'll call about the Georgian first, since Nocoins said it was nice. If anyone (that I like) wants in, we'll work out the details. I think it's a good idea to pair off with one or two people you want to room with (or violate while they sleep) and work it out that way. But let's try to get rooms in places that are near each other, last time I did it my hotel was suuuuper far south of everyone else. I almost missed the shuttle bus to the Sunday morning start.

PS Very excited for this. Fast pacelines through Jerz!

looks like you guys will have to be our enemy this year. Last year we had to fight against "Team Penn Design" since one of our team members (my now ex girlfriend) broke away from Team Schmeam to start TPD. Of course, we murdered all of Team Penn Design and we will have to do the same to "Team DC Pirates". I am saving up all my D Batteries to throw at you guys, Luke, you get some doorknobs in a sack, and Max, you bring your hair clippers. We are taking DC Pirates OUT* this year.

*TO LUNCH!!!

"Hey, you're that drunken posse. Can I join you?"
"Well, I don't know. Can you swing a sack of doorknobs?"
"Can I?!?"
"Alright. Here's your sack, but you've gotta supply the knobs."

Ahh Moe Sizlak. You are a poet.

oh no, you are a Planning Major at Penn... we probably know some of the same people... WORLDS COLLIDING!!! ;lakjdf;lkjasd;lfkjas;dlfkja;lskdjf;laksjdf;lkajsdf

Anyway, screw those bastards! they are going down. We referred to them as "Team Evil" last year and laughed really loud whenever one of their team members was on the side of the road with a flat tire. bahahahaha

Hopefully you will join Team Schmeam this year... then we will have a mole on the inside of the Penn Design School. suckers!

What will your weapon be against DC Pirates? You may need a box of protractors!

oh no I am!11!!!!!1!1 WORLDS COLLIDING!
maybe we do know some of the same people, but really I dunno anyone there very well cus I avoid them like mad outside of class. 5 years of ivy league pretentiousness makes one a jaded cynic with a strong distaste for fellow students.

I think I have to join Team Schmeam now so as to act as mole and aid in the TPD demise.

my weapon against DC? dunno about those protractors...but...hmm...my comprehensive knowledge of growth management? some jacked landscape architecture models from last semester's studio? paper airplanes made out of DVRPC letterhead? I'm at a loss...
isn't being a female enough in itself? there be so few around here. I'll blind them with my astonishing good looks as I ride by in a miniskirt.
alternatively I'll strap a ski pole to my bag for dire situations, or throw golf pencils at them.

As an innocent bystander, I would like to request no Lee Greenwood this year, please. At the end of the ride last year, I was tired, I was sweaty, I smelled bad, AND I had to hear that damn song. It was unpleasant on so many counts.

I'm all for a little rivalry. Pump in spokes, pump in spokes, we're no jokes, steal your cokes.

it's been done. the answer is: enough to make you puke many times over, even weeks after the ride.
