At any rate - I wanted to send a heartfelt thanks out to Off Track events and the organizers of the Pedaler's Jamboree. The COMOCYCO GEEC, dog and I took part in the Jamboree this weekend. Not ever having attended a jamboree before, I had to look up the definition prior to embarking and was interested to learn that according to Merriam-Webster, a jamboree is "a noisy or unrestrained carouse". Not knowing what a 'carouse' was, I again had to look up a definition to learn that it is "a drunken revel." Yes, yes, true enough as we encountered many a drunken reveller starting in Rocheport as one cyclist came into town toting a life-size plastic Spuds McKenzie and a plastic sac full of booze.
Yes, in the wake of the Landis-Lance revellations, it appears as though the conspiracy bandwagon has grown large enough for everyone and anyone to jump aboard.....even the super-sized ones...
Wow...I can practically feel the vibrations of the onslaught of toursists beating down the doors to Missouri's gates to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Pony Express.
Well since the Governor appears to be such a fan of Mark Twain, I wonder if he's familiar with this quote, "You can't depend on your judgement when your imagination is out of focus."
