Hat trick

Well, since I accidentally deleted my post to go with my link yesterday, here's an abbreviated version.

I'm sick of the mainstream media portraying Israel as the aggressor. And anyone who criticizes Israel's actions needs to shut up. I'd love to see their opinion after spending 30 days in the area where Hezbollah rockets are raining down. I've been in combat zones waiting for ordnance to impact, slept in bunkers because it was the only safe place, and been on patrols where you wonder where the next shot is coming from out of a crowd. Until you've seen the sights, heard the sounds, smelled the scents, and tasted the fear, shut your damn mouth, for you have no real perpsective as to what's going on or how serious it truly is.

To happier things, I'm racing in Houston on Sunday. Wish me luck, for I'll need it. I'm trying to do really intense efforts in the time I have available. So I'm time trialling on my rides, using my past experience knowing that if I can average over 20mph with stoplights and the wind, I should be strong enough to not get dropped. We'll see.

I won't wish you luck......that's the "Kiss of Death"! Instead, I'll say race your ass off and have fun! Hooyah! Be safe and watch for sandy corners! Let me know how you do! I'll feature it in my blog if you want!

i think the U.S. is pretty pro-Israel..most people aren't going to disagree with you. Except maybe Mel Gibson...and who cares about him?

:D

Good luck on your race!

Thanks, guys. Tom, feel free to feature the race. If my wife is free, maybe I'll even have pics to show. Hope the both of you are staying cool.

Free? I'm not free.. .I can be quite expensive. Let's see... a trip to houston, taking pictures in this scorching heat, and taking time to edit and photoshop them later.. sounds like it should be rewarded with a night at the melting pot :)

Mike said...

Ok, honey, I'll treat you to the Melting Pot...
