It's called Thanksgiving you idiots

Leave it to dumb Americans to take the concept of a perfectly good holiday and screw up its purpose and meaning by renaming it Turkey Day. I've said it many times and I'll say it once more: You've disgraced yourselves once again.

Only 28 days left until Present Day...

Meanwhile, while parked across the street from Jersey's, Joey & Jamie's bikes were stolen from the back of the LCI truck on Tuesday night. Be on the lookout for an orange Gary Fisher Caliber and hardtail K2. I'm willing to bet some white over-priviledged south-side Redlands kids took them because that's the kind of thing some white over-priviledged south-side Redlands kids would do. That and celebrate "Turkey Day". I weep for the future.

Here's what Joey's bike looks like just in case you were wondering.

I'm perfectly aware that the recent tone of this blog has been negative. Don't fret. It's just a phase. Nevertheless, it's my blog. I do what I want.

Then again, what I want to do and what I'm actually capable of are two different things. For example, I want to finish out the cyclocross season, but my mind and body don't seem to be capable of doing so, and because of that, I'm pulling the plug on the final 4 or 5 races. Few things in life are worse than being an Also Ran. Pride is a bitch, isn't it?

It's time to go to Plan C: Base Miles. With the exception of the numb fingers and toes, it's one of my favorite times of the year.

You should give up biking all together and do something that will make you feel better. I believe it is Baby Seal Hunting season up in Canada now. You should check it out.
