Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I was hoping for at least one good game today, but it looks like we'll have to wait for next week.

"Height of ludicrousness" doesn't have the ring of "Height of ludicrosity", in my humble opinion. I try not to let "english" be a barrier to speech.

Aside from The Weathergirls who originally did that song, has it ever been sung by straight women again? Why is it now only a gay male thing to want it to rain men?
