Hoosier Summer

The Summer of Chopper continued in July with the annual trip to Indiana. Nothing says the 4th of July like the mid-west. This summer has seen the worst draught since the 50's. The corn was only 2 feet tall and the lake was so low you couldn't put the boat in.

In Indiana they play baseball, football and basketball and they ride bikes. The thing I love about Hoosiers is they just do it. They play sports. No douche bags or hey look at me people.

Ever wonder why the greatest sports movies were staged in the state of Indiana. Here are arguably the best sports movies ever produced.

Hoosiers starring Gene Hackman and Jimmy Chitwood. " Don't get caught watching the paint dry". Rudy starring the Golden Dome and Notre Dame. "This is the greatest sight these eyes have seen" and of course Breaking Away a true story about the little 500 held annually at IU and the " Cutters " beating the rich IU frat boys at cycling.

Do yourself a favor this summer and watch a Hoosier movie based somewhat upon a real story with a happy ending. Because God knows we all love a Happy ending.

Attention Defecit ...............

It's not that I'm lazy its that I just don't care. Truer words have never been spoken. Thanks Paul Rudd. I have to say getting up the strength to fire off a blog post on the old commodore 64 has reached a level of historic boredom.

I think its still because at the root of it all I am writing about exercises. Can you really make exercises sound exciting. I guess thats why  its not just enough to join a exercise cult but do you have to put a sticker on your car and buy a t-shirt and wear some hey look at me socks. Yes, we are all looking at you.

If you do 50 push up and you don't tell anyone do you still get the benefits. I don't know maybe.

The TDF did not hold my interest either. I was bored at watching the 2nd tier rider on each team show up the main GC contender. The continual looking back to make sure the pace was just right for Wiggo was the final straw. I turned the channel to the British Open and cheered for Tiger because of his family values.

Block Party ?

Did you know that some Team Redlands riders have streets named after them. On a recent ride I came across this gem. Now I know that El Jeffe is kinda a big deal in the Yuciapa area but I had no idea he had this kind of clout.

This got me thinking who else on the team has a street named after them. Here are the results of my search. In Highland they have a Manning Court. Lots of barking dogs. In Redlands they have JT circle and in Mentone they don't have a street named after him but here is a Tickmeyer brewing center.

Team Redlands always ahead of the curve.
