    I had a completely insane black friday experience...there were about 500 people camped out in line at the Circuit City. I got my item first and got out first, because somehow I pulled a web scam and ordered before the 5AM open.

    This isn't cycling related, but

    Is Reggie Ball perhaps the least clutch quarterback in football history?

    It is that game where people run all over the field trying to get the ball into the net at the end of the field without using their hands.

    Like this?



    I thought someone was referring to REAL football -- sometimes called Australian football a.k.a. Rugby(?). (no pads or helmets)

    Ron, Australian football is different than rugby. Here in the States, it's often called Australian-rules football. You can pass by kicking or hitting to ball to a team member and goals are scored by kicking the ball through the post. The field is kind of an oval shape with four posts at each end. There's something about having to dribble the ball while you run, I wasn't as clear on that rule.

    If you haven't seen a match, I highly recommend it. The rules seemed bizarre to me at first, but it's a blast to watch.

    Thanks for the info. The Preview Guide on Comcast often lists something called "Australian Football" on the ESPN channels.
    I don't know the rules of either rugby or AF but I still enjoy watching the matches.

    gaelic football is also pretty cool to watch, but I doubt it's on anywhere in the states.

    You guys riding this weekend? Sorella is doing the SCT/Taylorsville loop - 80 miles, or more... And, the SBL ride on Silk Sheets/Cedar Grove looks like a good one.

    Thanks Wrench. I asked a few friends to do the ride with me and I didn't want to look like a dufus if there was no ride.

    For cool but not really cold temps (below 35F) I have a pair of Cannondale Windshredders. I got them in 2004/5. Probably similar to these.

    For cooler temps I have a pair of ??? with the name Gore-tex on the outside. I'll check the brand when I get home tonight.

    The gloves say Gore-Tex and SWANY on the outside. The tag inside says Flexor by Swany. I think I picked them up at REI about two winters ago. Here's a link to the current model.

    Hey Bran, also look at the Black Diamond Jetstream gloves. They're made for climbing, but I've been wearing them on the bike for years now and never been too cold. They've got a nice grippy palm that works well on the handlebars.
