Today's title is really irrelevant to anything contained herein, I've just had the song (Decemberists) stuck in my head for a long time. Do yourself a favor and go to Pandora and start a little radio for yourself. That site is pretty much the balls. I typed in 'Shakedown Street' a while ago and listened for maybe three hours without hearing a single song that was anything but good and made sense, many to most of which could in no ready way be related to 'Shakedown Street.'
The FPG is getting all hacked off at me because her character hasn't played a prominent enough part in recent adventure stories. I'll tell you how she would get some MAJOR air time on the 'wagon: she could race! She's got the lungs and the legs, good god she can blance on her forearms with her feet pointed somewhere in the direction of Indiana by way of Peru (that's a yoga thing, not a dirty thing, and inasmuch as it is a dirty thing, it's MY dirty thing, so don't go punching the clown thinking about MY FPG) and can rip off a pretty nasty 5k or 10k run. "Gee," you're probably thinking "get that lady a bike!" I HAVE! She's got the nasty dirty Cannondale, all shined up and ready to rip. Hell, she's even going to have some shiny team kit in a few short weeks (I signed us up for the family membership this year - big spender, that Chuck). She doesn't even have the excuse that she doesn't have the skeelz or whatever because she rips me a new one when we go mountain biking. What could POSSIBLY be holding this would be Jeannie Longo back? You'll have to ask her!
So in the spirit of Kyle but without his technical acumen to create a poll, I will just ask that people sign the petition by way of leaving a comment for the lovely Mrs. Wagon that she should finally get off her butt and go to a freaking race already.
WHAT KIND OF A FREAKING DOUCHE BAG CALLS OUT HIS WIFE ON HIS BLOG??? While others call out everyone else in the peloton for slights real and imagined, this guy goes straight to his own corner of marital bliss.
I might never get to have sex again.
