New recruit?

I have no idea who this is, where, when, or how I got the photo. All I know is that me likey. But no matter - I'm sure the VB's will just steal her away from us as usual.

Oh and thanks to the photographer for the sign placement. Next time try to get the "wrong way" part of the sign in the photo, okay? It's hard to find good help these days... next time I need to zoom out a little more... err, I mean, next time the photographer should zoom out a little more.

More Shorts...

More options for shorts. I like the black with stripes look, but will it look weird having those stripes on the black and also on the midnight blue jersey?

Okay, so thinking black shorts

Okay, so I picked out this fantastic color for the 2007 jersey - midnight blue. Beautiful color. Not Dodger Blue, and not Navy. Nice in between. But unfortunately they don't make the lycra for the shorts in midnight blue. Dang. So instead of mismatched blues, I'm thinking all black shorts (sans stripes) to compliment the midnight blue which has some black undertones. Ooh, is it PC to say that?

Tired of being objectified...

Okay, there is some chit chat going on in the new VB board about Podium Boys and other things. Well, me for one, am offended. All this talk is just inappropriate for a fine, upstanding group such as VB. Guess we're rubbing off on them...

(Here's one you can post BTW... the one below is suitable for posting as well if you likey)

Matching Shorts

Okay, so here is what I'm thinking for the shorts to fill out the kit (oh and we'll have matching arm warmers of course - the stripes of the jersey will continue all the way down - on long sleeve stuff too assuming we can get enough quantity to do them).

Whatchu think? Can still tweak some but I think it's pretty close. Continuing the disco theme with the "Shake your booty!" statement on the backsiyeeed!!!

2007 Jersey Unveiled!!!

Well, I thought I was done with this jersey bidness, but I'm back in the game. Our designer from the past two years hit the JDW - Jersey Design Wall (oh, not to mention she is with baby/toddler not sure how old he is now). Thank you so very much Erin for your efforts these past two years.

I actually have a jacket that inspired this. People seem to be fond of the Dirk Diggler font. The first time in I don't know how many years we've used a different font. Back to the classic back with the wrong way sign.

Ordering details to follow soon. We're actually working on getting into the queue. Keep your fingers crossed - we're hoping to get these by the Otter but we may not be so lucky...

[edit] Oh, and forgot to mention that we're having a contest for the collar statement (inside of the collar). Some previous statements include:

"Go big or go home!"
"Put the fun between your legs"
"If we don't succeed, we run the risk of failure. - W."
"Do or do not... there is no try. - Yoda"
"Space intentionally left blank."
"Nothing comes between me and my Voler."
"Never underestimate the stopping power of a tree."
"Blah, blah, blah... Shut up and ride!"
"If everything seems under control, you're not going fast enough."

What do you get for the winning slogan? Nuttin' but the glory and adulation of the cycling world. Oh BTW, need these by Friday 1/19/07. Thanks!

National Break-Up Day

This otta be good for a few war stories...I read this yesterday in the news

National Break-up Day

a story from a buddy of mine.....

"I still think I have the top break up story:

She returned everything, clothes, tapes ( hey, it was years ago) cards and letters. Left them on the hood of my car, on FIRE!"

Stories From Splitsville

"Oh Man, Where to Start?"

When it comes to matters of the heart, each one of us has a story to tell. Sometimes it ends with a "Happily ever after." All too often, however, it can end with an abrupt and out-of-the-blue "The end." Recently we asked members to share their own personal stories of how the fat lady sung. And, boy, did they have some whoppers to tell.

OMG! What a Jerk!

"An old boyfriend returned all of my stuff to me by putting it in a basket and then bringing it to me at my place of work. He entered singing and creating quite a stir, so that everyone would notice what was happening."

"He wrote me an email saying, 'Goodbye my friend.' Are you kidding me?! GOODBYE MY FRIEND?!!!"

"I noticed my boyfriend all of the sudden started telling me he loved me…constantly. Then a week later, he called me and was acting really strange. I kept asking him to come over and he wouldn't. Eventually he did, and told me he needed space. I thought I was in the Twilight Zone!!! He cried and told me it wasn't me...something to do with him having a child he didn't know about for two years. I was so hurt because I had never had anybody break up with me before. I guess there's a first for everything. He still calls sometimes and we have hooked up a few times. But I don't see him anymore. Sometimes I find that I still love him. What is this love thing all about?!"

"He broke up with me by text message on a cell phone."

"I had cancer of the esophagus and it required surgery. I was hospitalized for a month of recovery. They had to put a stomach tube in me just so I could be fed. When it was time for me to be released, my mom and dad came into my room. My mother was in tears. She told me she got a call from my wife and was asked not to bring me home because my wife said she couldn't deal with taking care of me. Because of that she was filing for a divorce."

"He broke up with me on MySpace."

My, What Bad Timing You Have

"As I was preparing to go to my in-laws for Christmas, I told my ex-wife that I couldn't go and that I had met someone else."

"I had a stroke in 2000. My wife came to see me in the hospital with her attorney and said that she was filing for divorce. It was Christmas Eve."

"I was served with divorce papers on our wedding anniversary."

"I broke up with my ex on his birthday. We had a major fight and I left him at the gas station. I had the keys to the house and he was five miles away from home."

"It was our anniversary and I had just gotten off work and was ready to celebrate. When I came home she was sitting on the bed upset, so I asked what was wrong. She said that her ex-boyfriend had come home from Iraq and asked her to marry him and she said yes. Then I heard a horn out front and she left."

The Disappearing Act

"We were in a club and she was drinking hard core. She left me on the dance floor, climbed up on the bar top, and did a two-song strip dance for the room. When she had shown everything and only had her thong left on, she jumped on some guy and left forever!"

"I was two months pregnant with our daughter when the guy I was living with for two years said he would be right back. I didn't see him again until our daughter was 12 years old."

"He did not show up for our anniversary dinner. He just sent flowers with a goodbye note."

"A week after meeting him he sent me an email saying that I was too clingy. The only thing I had done was to call his phone and leave a message to call me back. He never did, in fact."

"My fiancée and I had an argument on a Thursday. Friday, she had an argument with her parents. Her parents called me and asked if I had seen her. Monday, I got a call from her parents telling me that she came home. They also said that she had gone to North Carolina and married a complete stranger."

"I returned some library books and when I got back 15 minutes later she was gone. She had grabbed the baby, all the diapers, and a few clothes for the baby. She didn't even leave a note. Later on, she left a message saying she wanted to meet me and talk about things and gave me a place to meet her. She didn't show up. When I got home, she had cleared out all her clothes."

Delegating the Deed

"This guy I was dating for a couple of months asked his mom to do it for him. She told me he didn't want to be with me anymore. Plus that he was seeing his next-door neighbor. Then she gave me a hug on his behalf. And all this was in front of my coworkers. It was so humiliating."

"At the time, an adult man, 31, who had been my boyfriend of seven years, having gone on an extended vacation, had his mother call me on the phone to let me know that he would be returning home with his new fiancé and the life that I had shared with him was over."

Dr. Phil's Profound Words of Wisdom

Seems as though someone is trying to get into the Pshop war. Just when you thought it was over. Of course, it is hardly a competition.

As Dr. Phil would say, "Honey, there are a lot of sick people in this World. By attempting to enter this battle you're sinking to below their level. You don't need to call the Pope to find your inner moron."

Sure you want to party with TWW?

You never know what will happen at a TWW function. We're not the sharpest tools in the shed...

I think that is Rookie Boy doing his best impersonation as a flamer.

Okay, since I was tagged...

By the lovely Miss Mary (thanks a bunch), here are the five things that you probably don't know about me (or don't really care to know or something like that):

1) First 10-speed bike I had I won via the Kellogg's Stick Up For Breakfast contest. I drew Snap, Crackle, and Pop camping. Snap and Crackle were up eating breakfast while Pop slept. Either Snap or Crackle said, "Come on Pop, it's time to Stick Up For Breakfast!" Only bummer was that I missed the Schwinn Varsity the year before and got the dreaded red, white, and blue Sears Free Spirit... :(

2) I started playing golf at age 11 and got pretty good - a low of 81 and my longest drive was 366 yards. Loved outhitting those big ol' burly dudes and making a little extra cash money.

3) Didn't go to my Senior prom. Shoot, didn't go to a single dance while in school. Was pretty much a nerd in school (unlike the stud muffin I am now), despite being on the varsity baseball team.

4) Have worked in my current job 16.5 years!!! Two weeks right after graduating from college I started work. Talk about old school. Dayamn.

5) Have never gotten a speeding ticket in my life. Probably shouldn't have said that since I'm sure I just jinxed myself there.

I won't tag anyone else because there is probably a lot of stuff we don't want to hear about from the TWW folks.
