Bush eats it...again

CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) -- Running hurt his knees. Swimming cramped his style. So President Bush took up mountain biking, a sport that gets him outdoors, pumps up his heart rate and, every so often, sends him crashing to the ground.

Play hard or go home...what's the big story?

About halfway through, he sailed over the handlebars during a dangerous descent, but dusted himself off, picked up his $3,100 bicycle and kept riding.

Bush, who was wearing a helmet and a mouth guard, escaped injury other than a small cut on his knee
When the reporter points out that Democratic challenger John Kerry has a $8,000 road bicycle, Bush replied: "Who?"

When you mountain bike, you're supposed to crash now and then. If you don't, it means that you're not trying hard enough. It's the ONLY thing about Bush that I find admirable.
