that paul kimmage is the most important journalist to have written about cycling. warts and all. his, theirs, ours. the jury’s still out on floyd. but just remember that even if you’re frequently portrayed in the media as possibly batshit crazy and/or potentially desperate, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re a liar too.
way to personalize those ads, cnn.com!
thanks for thinking of me!

because it matters
a preview of the sports illustrated article we’ve been hearing about in the cycling community was released today. for those of us involved in the sport, all i can say is that this particular case has gone on and on and on… and it’s been exhausting. and it’s really just starting. people who don’t know a lot about bike racing but know who lance armstrong is (which is...

my friend brian, not my other friend brian c., who inspired the post you’re reading now, but my local friend brian f. and i used to go to this place in portland on tuesday nights and have dinner, drink some beer and/or wine and play trivia. it was a thing. and it was a thing for a lot of people. the place was always packed.

trash pickup is on mondays in this town. a little more than a year ago the city reduced its public works staff and automated garbage pickup with fancy robotic trucks. all of the residents got two, color-coded, positively gigantic bins for recycling and, ya know, trash. in its effort to reduce cost, the city astutely outsourced garbage pickup to a private outfit. back in the day, there were...
merlin: Sticking the Landing This is an insanely boring video of a child doing nothing. Unless that child is your favorite person in the universe, and you desperately wish you could put every day with her in a bottle. Babies make you into a total pussy. truth.

i believe that in a perfect world i would spell “world” correctly in the first sentence of a thing i believe and that a spelling error would not be sent out to twitter, embarrassing me when i simply want to convey my no longer secret longing for a greater pork taxonomy. i also believe that in a perfect world tumblr would not cache my spelling error, reblogged for all to see, despite...

i believe that in a perfect world there would be a greater distinction between a “hog” and a “pig” than simple age, weight and domestication criteria. i believe there should be the same sort of difference between a hog and a pig that exists between, say, a frog and a toad. similar, yes. but not the same. markedly distinct. i might even read a series of books called hog...

i’ve been a father for a little longer than two years now. i’m still, ya know, picking things up, but here’s something i’ll share in terms of what i’ve learned so far. maybe it will help you. and that would be swell. those diaper genie things? they’re like a garbage compactor for shit. you want to keep mashed down baby poop in a can in your kid’s room for...
