Potpourri...

A couple of good things that I am stealing/ borrowing again... because I can...

SteelRider2 has another good one today...
These are great comments/ questions from a guy who loves to ride and races a bit as well, but ultimately falls into the category of "Average Joe"- a guy not living the daily in and out of the cycling world. A devoted fan on the "outside" of the sport looking in. Good stuff...

Then, on a lighter side of serious fun comes this (courtesy of NorCal Masi rep MillerTime);

Happy Floyd Landis Day

Tomorrow, what we once believed was the greatest act of "hell yeah" in sports history may be taken away from us. But today...we can still revel in all that is Floyd. Cuz ya know, many doped up cyclists bonked on their way to certain victory. And many have gone all Hulkamania -- to no avail. But none of 'em ever took off on the bottom of the first climb the next day -- and stayed away. And won it all. Floyd, no matter what the truth is, you have balls. Ok, you might've had a patch on those balls. But I bet you stitched that patch on yourself. Everybody, take the day to celebrate Floyd Landis. Don't shave. Wear your hat backwards. Slap on your big shades. Crank Kid Rock. Go adopt a dog and name him Floyd (if you feel guilty about that tomorrow, you can rename him Oscar). Most importantly, remember that when the chips are down, and your dreams seem well out of reach, and everybody says you've failed, that's the time to pound a couple beers, take some swigs of bourbon, and throw down, motherf%#*er. Rock on.

I agree... Rock on!

Great post from MillerTime! This is one small error, though: Floyd said it was Jack Daniels and that is Tennessee Whiskey, not bourbon.
From a dry county no less.

Clever posting, MillerTime. Loved the "Ok, you might've had a patch on those balls" line.
You know, we were talking about buying a dog and what a great name Floyd would be. Great idea to rename him Oscar if things don't work out...

Kind of off topic but . . .

Kevin killed it at the velodrome last night; I think he won every race he was in and even lapped the field on the motorpace burnout . . . I have a feeling it was the combination of the Cotello and the AABikes skinsuit that gave him some good turbo.
