While the patch of zoysia I keep on my front yard for my golf short game is still brown, the Kentucky bluegrass has finally starting taking hold. The recent re-seeding and the wet spring has sprouted into lush green that is now ready for mowing.
And yet people are already talking about cyclocross, or "Lawn Racing", as Shim derides it.
Mod got the cyclocross discussion started on Facebook this week:
Really, 18 comments on cyclocross and it's not even Memorial Day yet?
Not to be outdone, Bryan Redemske dropped a cx bomb of his own:
Did anyone else catch that, or was I the only who detected a note of impatience from Bryan, who, having just built a top-of-the-line cyclocross bike, also has to go through the indignity of waiting for new shoes?
I've got two words for you, Bryan: boo hoo.
Now for goodness sake, can the two of you psychos show some constraint, already? Yes, yes, we all love 'cross. And as much as we're dazzled by your latest bike, shoes and zippy pants, cyclocross season is like four months away.
Oh what's the use. I give in. The truth is that I'm simply green with envy over Bryan's new bike and Mod's new duds. There, I admit it. I'm jealous. Yes, it's a cool bike. Enjoy it, Bryan. I wish I had one.
Oh well, I can probably afford to put in an order for the warm up tights.
Yes, you may even catch me wearing those warm ups on a cool summer morning. On that day, I'll zip up those full length jobbies, walk past the Madone, and choose to take my lawn rig out for a spin
At least for now, lawns are for mowing.
Happy Friday, everyone
