lame lame lame
I'm throwing a race called- I love marin yuppies that make over 100k a year, drop a quarter of it on a fancy usps signature edition road bike, support critical mass, and drive my sweet suv to the city every morning for work appreciation ride- note that I'm calling this a ride, not a race. god forbid anybody race in a dangerous manner that would monkey wrench a bunch of w@nkers' (i'll probably get made fun of for using the word "w@nker") sat. coffee ride. Oh wait- and you can use your brakes. It'll be so much fun! won't it guys!

That falls into the same category as people referring to California as "Cali". So yes, tourist jargon.

wangster 06-23-05 04:09 PM

Hey i'm from "CALI" and I still call it "Cali" and to me "The city" is Manhattan...just a slight difference in geological context.

But i'll be in "the city"(SF) on the 22nd of july so i'd definately try to go to the grease monkey mayhem... I just have to find a way to get out of the wedding i'm suppose to go to... and a bike.

I may have a bike for you.

Frisco, san fran, whatever.

I've spent over twenty years of my life in sf, and frankly I don't care what people call it.

Most of the people that get all bent out of shape about it are transplants that are trying too hard.

dokushoka 06-23-05 04:16 PM

I think you should get a five minute bonus for each roadie that you have chasing you to the first checkpoint...

46x17 06-23-05 04:41 PM

Nope I am dead serious!

phidauex 06-23-05 04:42 PM

"The City" is pretentious. I like SF, its a nice town, but its not the center of the world, don't kid yourselves.

Anyway, sounds like fun. I like timing it to coincide with the roadies. Shake things up a bit. ;)

peace,
sam

Wait! San Francisco isn't the center of the world??!! Guys? Tell me he's lying. :eek:

drac_vamp 06-23-05 04:53 PM

"the city", as a title for san francisco proper, on the other hand, dates back quite far. my great-grandmother moved to san francisco in or around 1906 (yikes), and the rest of the family has stayed firmly planted ever since. "the city" was her term, even back then. true, it rings of pretention, but it's not supposed to be putting down other places or anything, like "theeee (one and only) city", but just a way of differentiating from the suburbs that started popping up outside "the city" around the early 20s and 30s. (daly city, south city, the surrounding south bay, etc.)

Thirded or fourthed.

People who live in the Bay Area call San Francisco "the city." People who live elsewhere in the country call Manhattan (or St Louis, for all I know, as well) "the city." People who live in London call the old town center, which is now the Financial District, "the City" (uppercase usually).

I probably am one of those "transplants trying too hard," but "Frisco" just sounds dumb. Sorry Doc.

I like this thread though!

forgive me but i beg to differ. by using a simple method of tri-angulation it can be said that the direct center of the world (nay, the universe!) would be between the three following points: el farolitos 24th/mission, cancun 6th/market and castellitos church/market. the x marks the spot almost exactly at dolores park! hurrah!

weed eater 06-23-05 05:10 PM

just call it "babylon"

You are very close, but if you look closely, el farolitos should actually be replaced by la corneta. Just FYI ;)
