Another Tour

Le Tour de Rook

The infamous Tour de Rook has been resurrected to the groans of many weekend athletes. Coverage of Stage 2, Stage 3, and Stage 4 is available. It now comes with a sound track, unlike the other one.

Jesse Ventura, Michelle Bachmann, Franken/Coleman, and Garrison Keillor aren’t the only things happening in Minnesota. It’s like Alaska without the earthquakes and volcanoes.

You just had to give me shit, didn’t you?

What are you referring to? I’m acknowledging your effort. You don’t hear me talking about biking, or riding in dog sleds – I just cover the events.

You have music. The Tour de France has cops on motorcycles mowing down spectators.

As for Minnesota – have you forgotten that Joe Scarborough is my former Congresscritter, and we had the Shrubbery’s brother, JEB, as governor for 8 years. The 2000 election, Terri Schiavo ring any bells?

Time to spread the snark.

Oh, I don’t know. Maybe it’s the whole “groans from many weekend athletes.

All kidding aside, I’m thinking of stealing the pic you created. I like. Is it okay to steal?

If you ever read your comments, I was going to offering it, Rook. It’s a gray scale .gif, if you care.

As for the “weekend athletes”, that one wasn’t actually directed at you, it was at someone else who keeps telling me he’s going to do something “real soon” about a weight problem that is going to result in diabetes if he doesn’t start losing some weight, or convert it to muscle. He has a bike and Florida is nearly as flat as Kansas [the highest point in the state is 345 feet], so no one is apt to be going for the “polka dot jersey” around here.

Thanks for the gif! Okay, so you wern’t giving me shit. I retract earlier statement. Although, honestly, I deserve shit. Actually, I think I ask for it. I’ve read my post. So, I’d know.

Oh, and I do read my comments. They are all emailed to me automatically. The problem is that I usually don’t reply to them. I figure, why always go for the last word?

I don’t expect a novel in reply to comments, but an acknowledgment that I conquered your commenting system would be nice. I realize that everyone is supposed to use one of the free sites that offers easy access, but I need space to test things, so I blog while I’m messing around with actual work.

Oh, I wasn’t crapping on you for the bike, but Minnesota? How could I pass on that?
