Mike Friedman takes the win for today!!! I think for today this should be an exclamation mart rather than a question mark.

As for my lame butt I raced my ass off yet just managed to miss the winning break. I also had my arm semi amputated and jacked my back up really bad. Oh well, I can sleep easy knowing that I am the golden child. Every stage race I have done with the team we have won a stage (Gila, Beauce, 'Toona). Hopefully tomorrow I will be more than a lucky charm.

Yada Yada

Man the ratio of assholes to non assholes in Pittsburgh is way off from most of the places in the country. I can not tell you how many people have been more that willing to offer their negative opinions about my profession while speeding by me on the road. If your one of the 28 people (yeah, I counted today) who yelled at me on the road today all I have to say is fuck you. Why don’t YOU get on the side walk or go to hell. And to the weird, smelly, gay guy that tried really hard to give me and Taylor directions from the Starbucks to the Amerisuits : Thanks man, we made it home

Angry motorists aside, Pittsburgh has not been too bad. A little Hibachi, and a baseball game have served well to spruce things up. The post game fireworks were some of the best I have ever seen in my entire life. I will give a high five to that. And a big high five to the Houston Astros for whipping the Pittsburgh Pirates. Way to go guys!

wow, we sucked @ nationals. hard core. maybe it was the crazy steep ladder/stairs me and pete had to scale 6 times a day to get to our room (yes it was fun in the cleats!) or i could have been all the toaster treats. or perhaps it was the fact that w/ our sweet argile we were super marked out there and expected to do all the work w/ only 4 guys. i did my best to make everyone cry but the best we could muster was Craig's 4th in the tt and Taylor's 5th in the crit. personally i was happy w/ the way i road and have a good feeling about Toona which is next week.

right now it's just me, pete, craig, taylor, and daimo pickin' our butts in pittsburgh for the rest of the week untill toona. we are making fast friends w/ the ladies down @ the trek shop and quest lab and we got some sweet crabs down @ joe's. i'm not gonna lie: i'm starting to crack a bit. me and pete are so cracked that we both gave eachother really fucked up (excuse my profanity) hair cuts. i look like some sort of nazi ninja and pete had the sweet short bus, sylvan learning center special kid hair cut. it was oh so crisp till he shaved it all off. now he just looks 13 years old. on the bright side we now have internet i should be able to hold off on killing pete in his sleep for a little longer.
roughest chip/seal i have ever ridden on in my life. the pick does it zero justice.
go see my roomate-

Is tomorrow. We did a lap and a half of the course today. Felt pretty good even though it rained like crazy the whole time.

Wish us luck!!!
