Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!

Join Charles Pelkey, the Man On the Scene (MOTS), The Old Guy Who Gets Fat In Winter, some other old fat bald guy, and the proverbial Cast of Thousands this Sunday when Live Update Guy will follow the 2015 edition of Paris-Roubaix as it happens.

That’s why they call it a “live update,” in case you were wondering.

Paris-Roubaix will be something of a test drive. Consigliere Pelkey, being an attorney and freshly elected legislator, is busier than a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest, but he’d still like to keep a toe in what we like to jokingly call “cycling journalism.” If all goes well, we’ll consider doing all three grand tours again, as has been our practice for the past few years.

It’s a public-radio-style deal, dependent upon financial support from the audience, so if free-range, grass-fed, gluten-free, humanely raised, organic-hemp live coverage is something you find marginally valuable, pop round for a heaping helping of our patented Non-Race-Related Blah-Blah-Blah (NRRBBB)™ come Sunday and consider dropping a copper or two into our beggars’ bowl as we cover the queen of the cobbled classics.

I would not feel so all alone. Everybody must get stoned!

    Need me to send you some Gummy Bears from the now 2 legal pot shops within a 5 minute walk from Casa ONeill? The walk home is ~ 4-5 hours and I may forget for whom these were purchased.

    That’s good news! Here’s to hoping it’s a more interesting race than Tour of Flanders 2015. Maybe SKY’s “game-changing” bike will help Brave Sir Wiggo? That guy from Norway’s on-fire though and I won’t put it past Etixx (ought to be an electronic event ticket seller) to make it a perfect “0 for” the Classics season while Sep Van-whatever makes another late race charge for nothing. Can cycling’s Donald Trump motivate his 4 million euro man to finally win something big? I hope for sure the neutral support cars (should be Mavic this go round?) can avoid hitting any of the folks they are supposed to be neutrally supporting!!! Might even drag my laptop next door to the TV room to join you in snarky comments while tossing a few bucks into the jar from here in Italia.

    Lordy. That clip reminded me of driving to Toronto with my best friend Kevin in the winter of 73-74 for a Dylan/The Band concert. Dodged jackknifed tractor trailers on the QEW from Buffalo, but well worth the excitement.

  4. Jon Paulos Says:

    I’ll be there. But I’m not sure that even Paris-Roubaix can top this year’s Ghent-Wevelgem for death marchiness.

  5. Pat O'Brien Says:

    Will be there if not out riding.

  6. Dale Says:

    I’ll be there for sure. So the band is back together – LUG, P’OG, MONS, MOTS, & NUTS (too many to name I hope).

    For this year’s TDF, I will be gainfully unemployed – being retired just a few days prior to the Grande Departe. So that means I will not be participating with the volume turned low in my office.

    I’m not sure how LUG manages to do these things with his schedule – maybe the Tardis he built for Anika isn’t just plywood and screws.

  7. Debby, north of Crestone Says:

    Sounds like a good time! I’ll be tuning in. I’m amazed LUG can find the time, with his new political career and all.
