Davide Millar Takes British Championship

I gotta cheer for David Millar.

“This win is massive for me. It means a huge amount,” said Millar. “I have wanted this jersey for the whole of my career. I’ve had close calls and I have spat the dummy out a couple of times in this race before. I think I have matured with age and managed to control my temper a bit better. I am pretty proud of being British. A week after the Tour I felt bad all day today. I was tired and my legs were bad. Your perception is weird. I was off the front and my legs were hurting but I was going damn fast. I can just keep doing it as well.”

He said: “I have spat the dummy out a couple of times…”

WTF does that mean? Whatever it is, it can’t be good.

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. from urban dictionary dot com

    Australian Term: To indulge in a sudden display of anger or frustration; to lose one’s temper. The phrase is usually used of an adult, and the implication is that the outburst is childish, like a baby spitting out its dummy in a tantrum and refusing to be pacified. (Dummy is a pacifier)

  2. we called em binkies

    but come on… what self respecting educated dad don’t know all the various euphamisms for the fake boob to keep the kids quiet…

    ya know cause a pacifier is just a mobile breast/nipple substitute…

  3. Nothing to do with cycling it just means throwing a tantrum / paddy / wobbler – something our Dave’s been apt to do in the past!

  4. can we call it a “Bush”

    he’s a dummy
    he’s a fake boob, not even good enough to be a real boob
    we would all like to spit him out
    he gives us temper tantrums

    it all fits

  5. Really – I had no idea. But I’ll flip it and bounce it all day. Soon as I pick up my daughter, I’ll slip her the dummy.

    That just sounds wrong…
