It'll be interesting to see how UT, who is used to getting its way, will behave when it is ranked 7, 8 or 9 in the SEC. It's going to have to spend a lot of money to achieve greatness among that group.

This will make lots of $$$$ (duh), but frankly the old SWC schools don't belong in the SEC. Even Arkansas. Different cultures, and way too distant.

The conferences have sold their souls for TV.

Yes, people cheer for the athletes from their countries. Yes, many of them cheer against athletes from the top competitor nations (was Russia, now China?). Is that not human nature?

What's going on now pales in comparison to what goes on in the fall in the southeastern US (TN, GA, FL, AL, et.al).

This is true.

I think this pretty much dooms any chances you might qualify for any State Dept. job.

I had a cherry Entenmann's with a blue Powerade at the ride break this morning. Also drank 3 bottles of water in 43 miles. It was hot and windy and the e-bike guy turned his power to position "2".

Until today I never heard of grape pie let alone a hand pie. To summarize: TIL about hand pie, grape pie and grape hand pie.
Mind blown.

I just got back from my evening quasi-run.

Attire: shorts, no top, like a freakin' 20-something

Oh yes.

Grape pies are apparently big in the Finger Lakes.

Sounds like a waste of grapes to me.

Hey I'm lighter than I've been in many years. Of course, it could be because I've lost muscle mass.

A well made pie is never a waste of fruit.

I'm cleaning up in these little races on Zwift. Tonight's was a crit, in Crit City. I have been doing the "Anti-Sandbagging" races, figuring that 1) I won't have to compete with people racing in lower categories than they should and 2) when I'm ready to move to the next level and start losing constantly, Zwift will let me know with a cute little green cone.

I swear, it's like riders in the D category don't get the whole 'drafting' thing. Any time I went to the front to pull, they'd accelerate to get back in front. So, I sat in as much as possible, and threw in a couple big accelerations, then let them catch me. Then on the last lap as soon as we hit the little climb I went hard, dropped them, let one of them catch me again, and then sprinted for the line and won by 2 seconds.

So you're cherry picking?
