Okay, this is important:

This Thursday (30th) there's some silly neighbourhood "event" happening. The shop is participating, but the IMPORTANT part is that we're having mini bike races. We've got a few folding bikes and kids bikes, a few bmx's, etc. and we're taking over the grass lot next to the shop for some night time drunken mayhem. If you've got a bike that's too small for any respectable adult (bmx's 20" and under allowed) feel free to bring it out and race that ****. The beer fridge will be in full effect if you want to bring some stuff and keep it cold.

MINI BIKES!!!

PS. 6-10pm is when this is all happening. I'll be racing any little kids that want to participate, so expect me to be in a bloody pile by 8pm (I figure I'll have to throw some races to make everyone feel good).

That doesn't sound like a fun time at all. Kind of strange that it is getting worse after two weeks. Maybe get it checked out-sitting in the hospital sucks, but then again, so does work.

And yeah, it's been 2 weeks I think.
After 2 weeks I would be a little concerned. I broke a few last year playing rugby, and eventaully had to get muscle relaxer shots from the E.R. and this was in India and it takes ALOT to get me into an India hospital) Seems the ribs made me sleep funny and after a few weeks the muscles started to spasm and sieze. Not fun.

I busted ribs sailing once and it took a month before I could do anything without pain, I would definitely get a doc to take a look at it there is a lot of things for a broken rib to puncture, bruise, tear or lacerate. Even if nothing is wrong besides some swelling/bruising it will take down your level of concern and stress.

I'm off to surf for the weekend, they tell me it will be cold when I get back...I hate that.

Thanks for the advice guys.. The ribs actually feel a bunch better again today, so I think I was right in my theory of just sleeping weird on Monday night. I'm going to take Keith's advice and if they're still bothering me after this weekend I'll make an appt with my doctor.

Also, does anyone know if any shops are carrying Reload bags here? I want to check out their backpacks.

So you hunt thru the Craigslist personals looking for action and then deflect the sure derision and jibes you would receive by saying someone else replied? Good strategy bro...keep it up.

I met a nice girl through CL once but it didn't work out. I'd respond to it but I am too fat and a Shimano guy.
