Addiction 2021.3

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Not much fat, but lots and lots of non-useful muscle.

Don't need much arm muscle to steer.

Giants, Eagles, and Bengals, apparently.
One of my cycling friends from college also played college football and even did a little semi-pro ball. He said his teammates would always call him "the little guy," and at that time he was about 6 feet 2 inches tall and about 210 pounds.

Much of it is based on sprinting power. Hence the Jamaicans. They should see if DK wants to try it for the next winter cycle.

Saquon, too, but I don't know that he'd be able to fit his guads in the bobsled.

Key word.

Just because I want to see a U.S. swimmers beat the Ozzes doesn't mean I want to go to war against them.

Funny thing is, my Grandfather loved the game so much that not only did he play it professionally 110 years ago, he later worked as an umpire for 57 years. Even cataracts didn't stop him, though maybe they should have......

I just saw one of these today but he wouldn’t wait around for me to get my camera. It’s an unusually heavy amount of orange underneath, even for a male, and there appeared to be an unusual amount of orange on the top, too. See if you can get a shot of his wings open.

I'll give you one very good reason - it induces a solid nap.
