Olympic men’s road race internal conflict

I’m just going to throw this out there: I’m fighting feelings of disappointment in the Olympic men’s road race. I’ve thought about this all day, had an email back and forth with a friend about it, ranted to a coworker, and continued to mull over it while I did some weights at the gym. [...]

I didn’t really want to watch the men’s road race anyway

My non-Intel iBook is apparently not cool enough to watch the streaming video coverage of the Olympic cycling events.

Now this just ticks me off. Chances are good it would still work on my system, but I’m being specifically screened. That’s annoying. And that’s bad form NBC.

Aches and Photos

I think my body is taking a hard line “no volleyball” stance. Biking is friendly to my joints, whereas volleyball gives me the gait of a 70 year old knee replacement candidate (ah, hello future).

There’s really not much to say here. The first and second rounds of the tournament were not kind to my bracket. Like, not even a little bit. Kansas lost in the first round. North Carolina lost in the second round. The Georges accomplished more than their fair share in [...]

March Madness, Baby!

Oh, yes. It’s that time of year again. I cannot well describe the excitement this time of year brings for me — we won’t bring up the loss of productivity as I continuously refresh ESPN’s scoreboard during the day. In college, I missed very few classes, and most of these absences can be attributed [...]

2006 Winter Olympics: I say Torino, You Say Turino

As my fair readers know, I’m not one to shy from a good bout of sports watching unless it’s hockey on TV or NASCAR. Thusly, I’ve been following the winter Olympics. I can’t help but peek at results through out the day only to go home at night to watch said results in [...]

Dreams

To live in a bike friendlier world. To create the greatest collection of fabulous shoes ever assembled. To see a viable third party in US politics. To get local Rio team riders to acknowledge existence on road.
