Well the DC Pirates left my place several hours ago and are probably on the road
home after a day at the track. 3 days after having 11 bikers stay in my apartment
and all thats left is:
1 black sock
1lb of 5 lbs of gummy bears.
1 super big white furry bike seat
19 cans of Sparks
~500 pieces of Hard Candy
1 DC Pirates T-Shirt
1 City Bikes jersey
1 DC Pirate Spoke card
1 eye patch
2 broken bones
There's been some talk about how I broke my arm. Ranging from Dave(Tink) losing control and takin me down while poundin Sparks to Getting the wrong end of the DC Pirate's sword (also in Dave's hand). Well all...IT AIN'T TRUE. The DC Crew & I are were on our way to Manny's via Chicago Ave/Milwaukee when an engine pulled out of the firehouse. I slowed down and drifted right and Dave was checkin on everyone behind us and we collided. We were going pretty slow and if it had been any other crash we would've laughed it off over brunch. And if there's any question of Tinkerbell's biking abilities I can vouch that I only know few who can make it from my place to Skylark that fast and while on Sparks.
Either way if you're going to break your arm I recommend doing it in front of a firehouse. the only better place would be in bay #1 at St Mary of Nazerath. Dave came with me to the hospital and called my friend and stayed with me. I eventually convinced him to go represent at the alleycat and I definitely was touched when the entire DC Pirates tried to insist on coming to visit. Instead they went out there and won DFL!! I couldn't be prouder!
Despite, the arm and the whole hangin' out at District 1 police station the night before I had an absolute blast (Hey I think I might've been the only bf.net-er who was at both the hospital & the police station!). Everything from almost single-handedly destroying the Friday night race (I was getting faster dammit....really) to hangin out at the skylark.
Warning Vicodin induced sappiness ahead.
To: John, Dave "Tinkerbell", Kenton, Tiffany, LBK, Julie, Tiffany/Emily, Peter the Clink, Christophe, Sol, Kevin,
it was a pleasure having you stay over and I will see you all either next Meat n' Greet or when I come out to DC.
