Thinking inside the box

This post goes out to two Brooklynites, Brooklynians?, Brooklyhenians?, who showed initiative, planning, timing, and good old-fashioned asking.
Scott is an architect, so I wanted to honor him by demonstrating my skills and drawing a portrait. It took me like three hours just to shade his upper lip. It's probably the best drawing I've ever done. Or maybe I drew a Liger in jeans and black mock turtleneck.
Peter is a veteran, sporting the Helvetica for the super heroes known as BVF. He also hates the beach. He hates the ocean and all of the sea creatures living in it. How do I know this? Look at him running over hundreds of lovingly hand-crafted sand castles. That’s not a race course; he put the tape up at Jones Beach to justify his actions.

They were the first to sign up, wanting the pole position, starting grid No 1. Is this the NYCross protocol? No. Are we gonna hook them up? Yes. I’ll get my can of metallic gold spray paint, which I wasn’t huffing (contrary to popular opinion) and mark a Willy Wonka golden box for them at the start line.

Thanks for signing up!

October is the cruelest month, suffering.

Now, not only is SpaCx asserting that our event is much better than Cats but also that T.S. got the opening just plain wrong in his allegorical rock opera, The Waste Land.

Bold words Mr. Mistoffelees, you say. But remember last year we invoked the superpowers of Eric, the Weather Viking, Thorgersen to bring us PNW style deluge for proper course conditions. So we got that going for us, which is nice.

So, whaddyagot this year? The park was awesome but we’re going bigger to a new locale with primo terrain and spectating- how about the Saratoga Race Track grounds as a venue? That Johnny Walker Red dude blowing the horn, chicks in big hats, the compulsive gamblers in velour jumpsuits, they’ll all be there.

Registration on BikeReg available now. Warm up on the Oklahoma Track will be frowned upon, or subjected to tazing. We’ll get back to you on that.

Shantih, Shantih, Shantih

But wait there’s more…new race category announcement coming soon
