Thursday Hate

People who ask you a question but then interrupt you to answer it themselves.


Summerfest townies on Kenny Chesney night. They are legion in their starched/distressed cowboy hats, wife beaters, and “designer” jeans (purchased at Target). Why do I always seem to hit this one?


Other cyclists who stare at you/your bike as you ride past them.


Lance Armstrong coverage. The man is old. Too old. He already has race-face and the prologue hasn’t even started. All this consternation over his rivalry with Contador and Leipheimer is for nothing. Uh-uh. Armstrong will not finish. Contador will be in yellow for good before the second rest day, but his leadership will be cemented long before that.

Wanna bet on Lance? How can you say he won't finish, when he finished the Giro shortly after breaking his collarbone?

And don't get started on doping...they're all dopers so it's a level playing field.

Yeah, but the Giro AND the Tour? I'll bet you a bag of BBQ and 6x16oz High Life he's gone by the 2nd rest day.

I'm not a fan of the stares I get from hipsters with my track bike on the roof... they're probably thinking "dude you should be riding that not driving it" when I'm driving it to the place it was intended to be used.

Happened 3 times this morning... also a green/white kit stared me down at Elston/Belmont.

You're ON!
