randoms

  1. NPR tossed out a story yesterday about a few schools, in some midwestern part of the universe, that were offering corporations the opportunity to bid on naming rights to parts of the schools.

    Up for logo-auction were gymnasiums, performance centers, playgrounds, plots of lawn ... hell, even seats in auditoriums. All had a price tag and were up for grabs - in effort to help out administrators meet their bottom line without increasing area taxes.

    who else thinks this is just a fabuloso idea?

    maybe they can buy up ad-space on the instructors, too? Chemistry teacher brought to you by your friends at DOW.

    ... now go buy something.


  2. Furioso tells us that The Floyd is gonna rock za casbah. And KirkpattyMac has him placing 3rd behind der Kaiser and il Basso.

    hmm ... i remember back in the day when he was riding with Mercury. I was a newbie wanker-kin racing in anonymous-scratch together kits at a stage race down in Arizona. It was the final stage, downtown crit and fast as all hell. The promoters called out a wee-prime for a pair of Voler shorts. There was a lull and, what the hell, thought I, might as well take it. So I attacked pretty much as they rang the bell and only one boy followed me. I saw that it was Mercury colors (turned out it was Floyd) and the guy sat on me for the whole lap. I figured he was just marking me for his GC leader and wouldn't contest the crapper prime. Well, in the final meters he started to come around me and I was so pissed he sat on that I sprinted him full-bore for it.

    He got it by a tire.

    Afterwards I came up to him and said, 'hey man ~ you get your damn shorts for free ... why'd you sprint me for those things?"

    "oh, shit ... i didn't even know what that prime was for man, sorry.

    He went and grabbed the prime, gave it to me.

    Kinda got a soft spot for The Floyd ever since then.


  3. Dopers - will this be the year that so many guys are afraid of getting nabbed by the gendarmes that we have a clean-ish Tour? Will we see guys cracking left and right in that final week because of lacking juice?

    Interesting.


  4. Me n' Sabine are gonna have fun next year.
