Somewhere, over the … yeah, right

July's final rainbow

God help that leprechaun should I ever find him so.

Rainbow, goddamnit, wrong house again. Where the hell is my pot o’ gold, friggin’ illegal-immigrant leprechauns, goddam socialist Muslim Kenyans, mutter mumble grumble.

    Jees Patrick. Only you could take something a lovely as a double rainbow and turn it into a crochety old guy rant. Is your wine glass half empty??

    Demanding free money while decrying Socialism. Me thinks you’ve been in Bibleburg long enough, my friend.

    In America, if you work long enough and hard enough, you become what you hate?

    I see it this way – look how rich guys like Mitt Romney are…but they still want what (gawd, I hope anyway) they can’t have. Being able to do something you’d gladly do for free and making a living at it is better than all the cash in Romney’s offshore accounts. It could be worse, YOU could be the guy who came up with the idea of Radioshack sponsoring a pro cycling team!!! That fellow should be working in a place where he asks, “you want batteries with that?” all day long.

    Speaking of gold … No medal or metal for 4th place, but Tee Phinn has got my admiration for today’s ITT performance.

    If they averaged the road race placing with the TT placing, he’d be the top guy.

    And if wishes were worth a fiddler’s fart, I’d have a full head of hair and a stable-full of new bikes.

  6. Larry T. Says:

    Hair’s overrated. I save on getting it cut, don’t have to worry about what it looks like when I get out of bed, etc. The only drawback I can think of is I now have to put a Pantani-style bandana under my cycling helmet to keep my noggin from getting burnt. Bought my last “new” bike in 2010, a Columbus SLX frame made about a decade earlier so while NEW (as in never used) it’s far from new in the normal sense. I think the new bikes are almost as overrated as hair – ya still gotta pedal ’em. Don’t get me going on TV shows, the promos they show during the NBC Olympics seem to be pretty much just fart jokes.

    Whoa…it’s a double rainbow….all the way….

    Sorry I couldn’t resist.

    If you desire free money you need to pray harder!

    The end of the rainbow hit my house. But the recession has also hit the leprechauns. Instead of a pot of gold, all that was left were 3 Guinness bottle caps and an i.o.u.

    I’m a little worried about O’G. Too many nutcases from Colorado (our latest little Rambo who shot up the Sikh temple was a CO boy) running around shooting up the world. Hope O’G is keeping his head down. My guess is he is still trying to fix the plumbing.

      No s__t about the nuts with guns! Some a-holes shot at a couple of guys riding their bicycles here the other day. 7:30 am on a Sunday morning, JRA when two punks in a shopping-utility-vehicle pull up and open fire with a .45 pistol! They dove into the roadside ditch and called 911. The cops nabbed the pricks a few miles down the road. Yours truly and the wife rode by there later that morning oblivious to what had happened until TV news reported it in the afternoon. I’m counting the days until we can return to Italia, way too many armed screwballs here in the US of A!

        The comments on the web page are almost as depressing as the armed idiots.

        I suspect Madison and Jefferson (along with any other writers of the Federalist Papers and Constitution) are turning over in their graves, having trusted citizens of this republic with the 2nd Amendment. Not to mention the other 9. Seems we need to send a considerable portion of the population back to fifth grade.

        I hate to think that I need to pack heat just to ride safely. Anyone know of an ultralight, carbon fiber 40 calibre?
