Men in Uniforms

I was worried that there wouldn't be enough good pics of the Giro today. Its team time trial day and I figured that would mean lots of pics of guys in the same kit riding around in space ball helmets. Fun for one or two pics, maybe...but not a whole blog's worth.

A little searchin brought up some decent goods for today after all.

Here is a team time trial photo. No need to post anymore pics of this because all the other teams sort of looked like this too, just different colored shirts and booties and spaceballs. Well, except for Euskatel. They probably didn't look like this.

And no time trial blog o mine would be complete without a wide angle spaceball photo

Why does this pic

Remind me of this?

Basso Photo of the day. Fine little bubbly that he is.

And I had a hard time choosing the podium photo of the day. Serguei Gonchar (Didn't his name used to be Sergey Honchar?) is one animated little fella in pink. Here he has some kind of Al Bundy happy scratchy belly thing going on.

And here he is making one hell of a scrunched up kissy face

The drama of the day was Mattias Kessler falling off at 300meters to go and causing TMobile to lose the stage by one second. But I couldn't find a pic of that. So here's a pic of Scott Norwood. Accck! A football reference.

And the scenery photo of the day. For obvious reasons.

The fact that you referenced ol' Norwood...

makes me think you might be a closet football fanatic??

maybe in the past, though....that was quite a few years ago.

oh yes, I remember now.

So VB, you probably know that Franco Harris is a bit of a cycling nut...

That first that a giant rat? The C.L. lion in the Tour I get, but rodentia?

Can anyone explain?

Bunny said we are futon-ing it this weekend. Yay!

We have to get work done at the old house tomorrow, then need to get in some ride-time, then need to drive down. So we have no idea what our exact schedule will be. (we always say that, don't we...)

We'll call tomorrow as we know more. Assuming that is all okee dokee with you guys.

Happy friday!

Pab/bunny: will this leave time for wine & crackers after the kitty's hillly little ride? Vb/Ov?

I dont know what the rodent is. It has funny little pink chicken feet. Maybe a Shrew? Could be a shrew.

On Saturday? oV is thinking about doing both races and so we have no idea what condition he'll be in afterwards. But not very likely that he'll be in a wine and crackers mood.

Besides, the RH Villians usually have that get together at their pad in LG too.

oh i had to cancel the hors d'ouerves thing as they are removing and replacing the landings on my stair case.

its not like I haven't known about this for a week. i just didn't put 2+2 together.

3rd floor + stairs = party
3rd floor - stairs = no party

hummm, the light switch didn't stay on for too long, did it.

BUT I do plan on bringing goodies to the hill, so we can wine & snack while watching our fellas go round & round!

If a mouse like that came to my door...wooh. Let's just go with not a pretty scene.

Between their races and my hip we probably wouldn't make it up those steps anyway.

I asked oV to park on the same street we were on last time. You too? I'm riding in and should be there in time for the women 3/4 race.

I'm still cracking myself up with the alien photo

At 10:36 AM, May 12, 2006, Blogger Miss Mary said...
