Are you serious? (a pissing contest)

I was flipping through "ROAD" at B&N the other day and read an article about being serious about winning. So let's have a little pissing contest... finish this sentence:

I am so serious about winning that...

BDC, being serious for 45' during a crit is not going to make you a Nazi.
Within the boundaries of competition, lies a sick drive to win.
Just ask any world leader, business CEO, or top sportsman.
Just because it isn't your cup of tea...

I don't know where I implied 45', Nazism, or anything like that...

Yeah... I'm delaying upgrade. That's pretty serious too... but it's going to mostly be for some teammate wins after I get enough points.

I once followed Eddie Lawson through the hay bales marking the chicane at Daytona. I couldn't believe how late he braked but I figured, heck, if he can do it, so can I. He couldn't, and neither could I.
