commence with bloodflow rejuvenation for glorious nation of khazakstan

Yet another khazaki pro-tour guy got positived (i hereby declare 'positived' a new transitive verb) the other day. Caught in the big out of competition rounds like a dolphin in a tuna net. A really skinny dolphin. From Khazakstan. Funny thing is, they got him for the exact same thing as his Astana buddy and countryman the venerable hero alexander VINOkourov. Homo-logus blood transfusion. Don't they know that stuff was so 2004? Just ask tiny Tyler Hamilton, he'll tell ya. I have visions of strapping young square-jawed, blonde-haired cyclists lined up at the "now leaving Khazakstan" sign recieving SuperSoakers full of blood to help them on thier journey...

You know what reeely sucks? I'm going to miss the state crit champs this year. Yeah, I know. It sucks. Especially after last year, which with 3 to go looked to be a pretty sweet Dean Vs. Skerrit Vs everybody else field sprint, then the big Tim Coffey Spill happend. Shannon ended up on his head, I ended up dodging flying bodyparts but trackstanding in the middle of the road anyway, and Father Bosson rode away with it. Can't get the day off work though. I've tried everything aside from "We're renewing our vows. From last week." If Shannon wins I'm probably going to off myself.

Been having fun hearing about how everyone had a great time at our wedding. That's exactly what I wanted to hear. "short and sweet ceremony, good food, killer party." Mission accomplished. Also been having a great time referring to Jenny as "the wife" and "the old ball and chain." Seriously though, don't tell her I said that last one...

I need to get myself out to the track, old blood and all. Only 8 weeks to Nationals. Only one week to Jimmy's bachelor party though. hmm. I'm gonna be on poor form for that one as I'm off the sauce again, but I'll soldier on. And try to stay upright this time...

I'll leave you today with this soothing video. If someone could get this played before every theater movie, the world would be a better place.




p.s. that guys black shirt says DOPERS SUCK. Funny stuff.

These blood-enhanced doods seem to be getting kicked out like their teams had NO IDEA what was going on.

What's with that?

No fear DT on off-ing yourself. Logan and ANT have your back. They have been doing some secret sprint training . . .I came home yesterday to see that they had a bag of M&Ms, a bag of Rolos, a bag of chips after having hamburgers and fries for lunch and KFC for dinner.

They will be FLYING!

Chard has the Doper Sucks shirt and matching wrist band in his elaborate wardrobe. When Basso first came out bad, he wore the ensemble to Hooters, and our ever so bright waitress asked what a "DOOPER" was.
