Course 1, JB 0

Remember THAT scene in True Romance?

NO not THE phone booth scene.

The trailer scene. Where Don Vincenzo Coccotti, special counsel to Blue Lou Boyle (Chris Walken) is interrogating Clifford Worley (Dennis Hopper). Or as he says "a little Q & A".

Don Vincenzo smacks Mr Worley right on the nose. It goes something like :

"You see that?
That smarts doesn't it. Gettin' slammed in the nose. Eff's you all up.
You get that pain shootin' all through your brain ............ your eyes fill up with water.

That aint any kind of fun. But what I have to offer you ................ that's as good as it's gonna get. And it won't EVER get that good again. "

Today at the pre-ride the course was Don Vincenzo, and I, for a brief few seconds, was Clifford Worley. A momentary lapse of focus on a marble sized gravel downhill ---- and SMACK.
That smarted.
Had that pain shootin' all through my body, my eyes filled up with water, yelled a few expletives, and it wasn't any kind of fun.
I was just wondering why they'd put all those


signs up. Luckily my butt (with more than ample natural padding) took the brunt of it, but so did my shorts, which had a nice (well, not so nice - depending on your viewpoint) trap door ripped out of 'em. Didn't really like those shorts anyway. Riding in the last few miles I was hoping no one would be in the parking lot, and also wondering if I could get a ticket on the military base for indecent exposure. 'Cause there's certainly nothing decent about the any part of my a$$ hanging out of some lycra shorts. Oh well.
Today I'm going to teach that course a lesson on history because

"Ya know, I read a lot. Especially about things... about history. I find that shit fascinating"
RideOn, and RideSafe

I think I'm " in a vendetta kind of mood ......"


Here's the YouTube of THAT scene.

Ouch! Hope you recover fine and exact your two cents in the race.
