I am a little nervous.

Feeling good so far…
After 3 rounds of questions I am 28/30.
Ouch. Took a little hit, but I am super-rookie–a mistake is common…
After 4 rounds of questions I am 38/40.
That puts me just above the legal Testosterone ratio…
After 5 rounds of questions I am 48/50
Honey. We are getting Wendy’s tonight! My treat.

Holy Crap. You can even get a Biggie Frosty!!!
After 7 rounds of questions I am 68/70.
After 8 rounds of questions I am 78/80.
I not only rule this classroom. I rule this universe of non-smart math kids.
The teacher gave the class 2.5 hours to do the test.
Of the 30 people in the class 29 have been done for over 1.5 hours. This dude across from me who strikes a resemblance of (dis) still isn’t done with the test. Granted this kid always leaves class early and hasn’t shown up to class other than the first day, but hell you either know it or you don’t.
This kid, like (dis) doesn’t know it.
20min till we go over the answers.
Sarah. I need help.
I might be trying to live blog from my math test tonight.
No where in the rules does it say that I can’t. I won’t be asking for help, I will just let you all know how crappy I feel about formulas.
I am sure the hits will go through the roof with this gaurenteed excitement.
I hate the smell of Cheerios. It disgusts me to no end. Sarah decided to have some for breakfast this morning. It was is so bad. Now even Roscoe is puking. I am not kidding.
M.A. Rosco the intrepid morning reporter for the Channel 9 news is in downtown Minneapolis today. She is interviewing the new owner of this store in the Gavidae Common. I might leave for work right now to get down there and say hello. There is nothing like seeing M.A. Rosco in the morning and getting her autograph….wait I already have her autograph.
Wrestling is sooooooo gross. I can’t believe all of these athletes get skin rashes. If I was a wrestler I would quit and take up soccer.

As always this isn’t associated with my kick-ass new team; Grumpy’s/LGR or it’s sponsors.
As you may have heard the Tour of 10k is making a comeback for the 2007 season.
Or is it?
Due to a lack of dedicated volunteers the race is on the brink of extinction once again. Before you go out and quote me as a know all source just remember that this is based on observations from recent MCF meetings and emails/messages.
What is known is that a dedicated promoter has stepped up to run the Tour of 10k and other positions on a steering committee have been filled. This is very important for the success of the event. There is however a huge lack of dedicated volunteers to help make the race a go. In order for the race to receive the much needed funding from the MCF, the board of directors has formally requested a proposal that outlines the sources of volunteers, budget etc… I feel this is a very legitimate request as the MCF has never been asked to take on the financial responsibilities of an event.
The major sticking point among other things seems to be the lack of volunteers.
Only three teams have officially declared themselves to helping produce a stage or overall the event:
Grumpy’s Bar/LGR(State Fair Crit)
Birchwood/GIS (Memorial Day Time Trial)
One other team has declared an interest in helping produce a stage, but has a lack of members to do it alone:
Where in the hell are the other teams of the MCF?
I will give a free pass to Loon State as they are responsible for over 30% of the races in the MCF alone and for them to sacrifice another race in the season would be a terrible injustice. I am sure that I am not alone in my gratitude for Skibby, Delaney and all the other Looners out there that help make the MCF calender awesome.
But, I can’t understand the lack of interest to help from any other club in the MCF. I am not asking you to do quit promoting other races…I am asking for you to provide 5-10 volunteers on a Friday, Saturday, Sunday or Monday to help make this race happen.
How many road races have you been in when there is over 30 people in the feed zone?
Can’t these friends, family and other important individuals mark a corner for us instead of handing you a lame water bottle? If it is between getting water during a race and ACTUALLY being able to race I think you might just put a bottle in your jersey pocket. I know this may be a simplistic approach, but if the Tour of 10k is such an important event on the MCF calendar than the clubs and individuals that partake in this event should work like hell in trying to make sure it happens.
If it doesn’t happen you will have no one else to blame but yourself, team, club or unattached status.
Don’t come crawling to Grumpy’s, Birchwood, MCT or Flanders.
We actually had the balls to step up to make this event happen at no benifit to ourselves or club.
Before you start emailing this to everyone you know remember that I don’t speak for my club.
If I did I would be the first to tell you that we are doing other things for the MCF this season as well. We are trying to bring back the Campus Crit and a new cross race out at the velodrome, as well as, starting up a brand new Track Rider Of the Year program up at the Velodrome in Blaine.
So if you can’t tell the difference between an opinion and an official viewpoint you can go screw off.

Tonight I had the privilege of having a 10oz of Urthel Beer at the Bulldog NE.
It only came in a 10oz size. It was tasty at first, but after a while it was really slow, and lame.
Kind of like another bike racer I know.
In all seriousness it was a good beer.
I am trying to sell an old DJ mixer. See, I used to be a DJ. Well, maybe not a DJ since I really didn’t make any mix-tapes or do many parties. All I did was sit in my dorm room at Northern Michigan University and play records and try to scratch. I had a pretty sweet set up. I had two Technics 1200s turntables and a sweet NuMark Pro SM-1 mixer.
Buy My Mixer!
When I was at NMU I had a radio show on 91.5 WUPX, “Marquette’s Music Alternative.” My show was Wednesday evenings from 10pm-1am. It was a relatively popular show and I had a sweet stage name, DJ Itch. Okay it is kind of lame, but I was 18. The show was pretty sick, but I got tired of it being the only thing that I enjoyed while attending school there.
I sold one of the turntables a few years back to cover rent when I was broke. For some reason I have been holding on to this mixer. Now I am going to try to sell it on eBay. I don’t know how it works, but I am just hoping to score some money and not be so broke for when the racing season starts.
Last night was the MCF Banquet. I didn’t go. Why?
$20.00 a ticket.

Cyclingnews.com the other day had a press release about the new Cofidis uniforms. While I was at first stoked about the reemergence of a red team kit to the professional ranks I was rather dissapointed by the failure to provide a picture of said kit to story. Instead Cyclingnews published 5 pictures of the teams riders heads. Not one picture of the new uniform.
Thankfully Super-Rookie.com beat reporter Smithers was there and he took some photos for my website. I hope to have those soon.
That just seems stupid. Why have a story about the new uniforms and then fail to have a picture of them, even though there is a photographer there taking photographs! It is like opening the newspaper and the architecture critic is talking about a certain building and then their aren’t any photos of what he is talking about.
It is dumb.
