Friday’s Messenger Bag Contest
You can do it Fatty!
I just discovered your blog on my msn home page and as a person who wishes to lose weight by cycling herself about town have found some problems with rain. Lots of record setting rain here.
You have become the new standard bearer for my effort, above Lance Armstrong because of where you are coming from. I much better relate to your effort.
Keep on pedalling.
But you know, Robyn, if you use me as your role model, you’re much less likely to win the Tour de France.
Paris-Roubaix Video Contest
Insert sarcastic yet humurous comment about your weight and lack of riding ability here.
Insert sarcastic-yet-humorous comment about how I hope you find this video more watchable than I did.
Okay, I voted for you… Hope you win, I could use the stuff!!!
Well, OK, you win. But only because you used three exclamation points.
Office 2003 Professional
You want my vote for a $5 bag? Pah!
Next time please present a bribe in line with my over-inflated sense of self-importance.
Like, maybe, a $500 software package?
Prototype Messenger Bag
That was very rude. Just because you aren’t good at something doesn’t mean you have to put it down and everybody else who does it. I know that it is your own opinion and I respect that. But in my opinon a triatholon is a sport. My defintion of a sport would be something that gets you physically and mentally healthy. It should also be fun and swimming is. Even if you are doing it in a competetion it is still fun because its heart racing and its a challenge. A challenge is something everyone should want. If you keep winning all the time because its too easy its not fun. Also all sports are dangerous. In cycling you could trip, fall, or collide with someone. Every sports has its risks but that’s something you assume to be able to do it.
One last thing Poker you consider that a sport?
Well, would a poker-playing zombie be life-threatening? You bet it would. Therefore, poker is a sport.
