Ballin' On A Friday Night
After 2 weeks of no ballz, Turkey Ball Friday has returned. If for no other reason, the fact that I truly believe that there is a Mojo in the Turkey Ball that powers my weekend and my weekend's rides. Turkey Ball Power- ACTIVATE!!
Tonight's ballz were a mix of regular ground turkey AND ground turkey breast. I just kicked this shit up a bit!! Add in some red peppers, green peppers, onions, sauce and some kick ass whole wheat pasta and you have the makings for not only a carb/protein junk kicker, but essentially an electro-shock to the colon as soon as Saturday morning's java hits bottom. Add in some Bell's Two Hearted Ale and you're Ballin' Like a Pimp.
I nick-named tonight's turkey ballz "Big Mama's Ballz" in honor of the new spicy, 29" wheeled, 4" suspension rig that was just released by my peeps at Salsa Cycles. Nothinng says "Big Mama" like some kick ass, super sized, turkey meat balls, right?
I ended up ordering a set of Maxxis Crossmark 29er tires from Bikeman.com today. Sooner or later I'm sure I'll get a chance to roll them on some dry hard pack and they will roll fast, I'm sure. I hope that The Cranky Monkey is as dry as it was last year. If so, these should roll hella fast!
Speaking of races, I'm currently having the debate on whether to do the 18 Hour "Scouts Honor" or The 24 Hour Champion Challenge later this summer. I've been planning on the 18 Hours for the past two years and due to illness in '06 and big ass storms cancelling it last year, I've yet to make it. The price is right, the venue is right, the cause is right. But do I skip on doing the tradition that IS doing the 24 Hour Champion Challenge a couple weeks later in lieu of doing the 18?? Hmmm.
For the $100 I can get a sweet course, 18 hours of Solo racing and a cabin on course. BUT it's 5 hours away. OR I can do the 24, pay $230, and drive 45 minutes from home. Hmmmmm. They both have their advantages. Either way I'm sure to be able to give my Switchback 3 a good work out. Figure I'll ponder it a few days, and then make my decision. If gas wasn't f*cking $4.00 a gallon, the 18 would be a "no brainer".
Even though I swore to myself I would NOT talk about my eye, I am. It's doing better. Looks like shit, but it FEELS a ton better. Contacts are going back in tomorrow. I have NO idea how people live wearing glasses. Man does it suck. I am REALLY hoping to see some dirt tomorrow. I need it BADDDDDD. Need to see what Ma Nature throws our way overnight. Saddle time is needed. I don't REALLY care in what form.
