Nudity, Mt. Everest and irate, overweight 40 year olds wearing lycra
Can someone please explain to me what is wrong with overweight, middle-aged lycra-wearing riders that act more primadonna-like than Mario Cipollini? I watched an amateur criterium and I can't believe the attitude and foul language of some of these riders! I mean, it even makes a spring pro event in Belgium look like a church event. WTF!!?? These riders act like they are Gods gift to cycling (a rather overweight gift usually). What happened to having fun? enjoying yourself and not to mention, acting with honor and integrity? Anyone else have the same experience? Or am I over-reacting?
On to something completely different and much more amusing - apparently a Sherpa got carried away after reaching the top of Mt. Everest. The climbing guide stripped down and strutted his stuff on top of the world for several minutes. If nothing else, you gotta give it to the guy - he has balls... Or had, at least... At over 29,000 feet above sea level there gotta be some serious shrinkage.
