Vince Going Ironman Aero

Posted by Picasa Vince's close-shaved, bullet-shaped head with it's small pea-brain should have major aerodynamic benefits in the biking portion of the Ironman. Ironman? Whatever happened to Boston? The Boston beans are in the bag, Baby! After Boston and Medoc this year, you have to plan for the future. Now how do I get out of Michael's living room... Can you tell I am stuck at home, supposedly cleaning house in preparation for having my Father as a houseguest this coming week? The last of the great canine seducers. Hey! The washer is washing and the dryer is drying and the dusting has been dusted!!!

I never knew they made denim bike pants. Where do I get these? Great positioning, Vince, even if it really is just you waiting for your laundry to dry...
Buy the bike, buy the bike... You two were made for each other!

Position is everything...

Epp, it's the shoes that are the secret. Those shoes he's wearing look like ordinary street shoes, but they have hidden cleats, a rigid steel shank and they're attached to legs of cement, err, no, I mean iron. Those things plus Vince's extremely well developed inertial guidance system (when he starts down a hill, he goes faster and faster unless he needs to turn) will carry him through the triathlon in style.

Vince, suddenly your blog is reborn! Welcome back!

Had you caught the news of the wave start at Boston?

Cowboy boots are highly under-rated triathlon footwear. The pointy toes are aerodynamically efficient, they are tremendously effective as motivators for the contestants immediately in front of you to make way, and their reputation for wading through animal excrement is unparalleled. They don't call them shit-kickers for nothin'!!!

Wave start? What wave start? I heard the starting-time pens had been pared down. What's the scoop, Scooter?

Well, Vince, in my usual self-serving manner, here are two links to my blog where I talk about it. If you weren't off on benders while claiming to be training, you'd be reading my blog and know the scoop.



So, you'll see that you may have an extra half-hour of pre-race drinking (peeing?) that monday.
