You Shall All Covet The New Addiction

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

My wife joined a gym so I got a 14 day pass and went swimming with her on Friday...it was dumb...I went for 30 min and was woozy afterward. It kicked my ass, and my wife swam much better, I have pretty bad form.

Of course I still beat her for a final 50 yard race I have perfected my "flail" stroke.

Also go Giants! Iwent to the Miami game last week. First NFL game I have been to, everything looked smaller in real life.

I can assure you the NFL players don't look small when they are in the same room with you.

Less than 5K to go....PCAD could probably do that all on his own on a good morning.

Now I have to go dig up and bump the appropriate thread.

I estimate the party will be mid-week.

44 miles this AM. Stopped to help an old lady out in outer bumfark pull her garbage can out of a ditch. That was my good deed for 2011. There won't be another.

HED or Zipp........HED or Zipp.........I hate hard decisions, especially when I know what I want and I know what I want to spend. It sucks when they aren't both the same.

Yeah, I know...but still, you mods should be a little bit more patient and wait for the thread to "Jump the Shark" before deleting it or moving it on to foo or trollheim or the dead threads bin.

Unfortunately when threads get multiple reports we have to act.

any post pictures of women without their consent threads should be deleted/moved. I think that the mods acted appropriately.
