I’m Telling Y’all It’s Sabotage
While I’ll do like the Beastie Boys, today’s post really has nothing to do with them, other than their relation to the title. All of a sudden, I’m sick. And yeah, it feels like my racing adventures have been sabotaged. Well, it’s been coming on for the last few days, but today it hit me like a ton of bricks. Even driving into work today, I was in a haze. It actually felt like I was on autopilot. So, what does that really mean? Well, if I don’t get any better today, I may not be participating in tonight’s Summer Series race at the U.S. National Whitewater Center. Big deal, right?
Well, I guess it’s not such a big deal after all. It’s not like I’m in he running in the points competition or anything. Still, I do enjoy racing, even if I’m getting my ass handed to me every week by most of the people in my class. If I feel a little bit better this afternoon, I’ll still give it a shot. Hell, I can’t come in any worse than last place, can I? Well if there’s a way to finish worse than last, I’m sure I’ll figure it out. Being sick sucks, but not riding my bike sucks even worse. I tend to get a little nutty when I don’t get enough of my two-wheeled happiness, so that alone may give me reason enough to go out there and “race.”
In other news, I have a few things in the works. There are several scheduled deliveries of goods headed to the B-43 Worldwide Headquarters, but I honestly have no idea when the shit will get here. I can’t really let the cat out of the bag, but I can give y’all a few hints. Some of the “items” are upgrades, some are new “fashionable garments”, and some are “gifts from friends.” I can tell you that there are no new business partnerships in the works just yet, but that’s mostly because of how bad I suck this season I guess.
Hopefully if I feel better by this weekend, I can redeem myself with a podium spot in the 2010 Catawba Riverfront Classic. Right now it’s not looking so good, since I fear that the worst is yet to come. Did I mention that I hate being sick? I guess if you’re feeling up to it, you can tune in tomorrow to see if I found a cure for the common cold, and lined up for yet another pathetic attempt at racing in the Summer Series.
