Fuck that

I’m walking to work the other morning, I’m late, the sickness is just kicking in. Going back to bed seems like an excellent idea. At least it’s sunny.

On the other side of the street I see this dude in a black sweatshirt leaning over his bike and digging through a cardboard box. I’m getting closer and eyeballing the scene. It’s BGR. On a test ride. Stuffing who knows what out the box into his pockets.

I get up on ‘em close and we start the convo. I’m like what the fuck are you doing dude?

It’s free, he tells me. It’s food. Cans, boxes, jars and bags. All types of shit. He’s pulling out anything that says natural or organic. The rest gets pitched back.

I look at it and ask why he doesn’t just take the whole box back to the shop, put it up in the employee lounge, and let everyone at it.

He looks at me, for the first time taking his eyes off the prize and says, “Fuck that.”

What the fuck is going on here with the current state of affairs?

Andreu and Cippo are out, Axel’s in (for this week), UCI v. Dick Pound, Prudomme’s a jaggoff. The Boys in Argyle received an invite to the Tour, while Astana got dissed despite having last year’s Tour winner and Tour whiner on the team. So much for the Let Levi Ride campaign. Rock Racing failed to get a start at the Tour de Georgia. Does anyone wonder whatever happened to Floyd Landis? Finally, in an ironic twist of fate, Dick Pound has been sued by the UCI for injurious and biased remarks Pound made relevant to the UCI’s anti-doping efforts. This sport is one big soap opera.

I’m going for a ride.

That ride sounds like a damn good idea.

Good looking out.

Cameron ‘sorry for bike mistakes’
Conservative leader David Cameron has apologized after being photographed ignoring red lights and cycling the wrong way up a one-way street.

Pictures in the Daily Mirror newspaper showed the politician breaching traffic rules as he cycled to work.

“I know it is important to obey traffic laws – but I have obviously made mistakes on this occasion and I am sorry,” Mr. Cameron said in a statement. Read more: news.bbc.co.uk

Bitch’n.

Former cycling champion Tammy Thomas seemed to be in the midst of shaving her face when an Olympic drug tester paid her an unannounced visit in 2002, according to testimony Wednesday in her trial on perjury charges. Read more: sfgate.com

Shit is tough all over.

Golf analyst David Feherty broke three ribs and punctured
his lung when he was hit by a truck while riding his bicycle near his home
in Dallas. He expects to be fully recovered in time for the Masters.

Feherty said Friday he was returning from his morning bicycle ride a day
earlier when a truck hauling irrigation equipment pinched him into the curb
and he was struck by the side mirror.

“He didn’t want to hit the car on the left, so he ran over the cyclist on
the right,” Feherty said. “I don’t remember a whole lot about it. There was
a lady on the scene quickly, keeping me conscious. The next thing I know,
I’m at Baylor Medical Center, the only hospital in the United States that
doesn’t have The Golf Channel.” Read more: sports.espn.go.com

Him losing the Golf Channel is like me losing the internet: A blessing in disguise.

Still sick on this end, stayed home from work yesterday and slept hard. Working out the kinks. This one made its way around the house, I was third and last in line.

It is what it is.

About big jonny

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

  2. “Getting the invitation to the big ball means you’ve arrived. Choosing the right dress means you’ve succeeded,” team manager Jonathan Vaughters, of Boulder, said on the team’s Web site. “The next 10,000 kms of training and racing is our dress shopping. It will result in us either waiting in the corner for a dance or stealing the show as the belle of the ball.”

    Dress shopping? Whatever.

  3. Feherty seems like the kinda guy you’d get together with at lunch, and stay ’till bar time.

    Didn’t know he rides.

  4. So….is BGR stealing from the can/food donations for the less fortunate?
