1. HOLY CRAP HAS TRIRUDY GONE TO THE DOGS OR WHAT???
 Chris Milburn   (General Comments)
skip to next       Back to top
 
Hey Tri-Rudy-Peeps

I have been a subscriber to TriRudy for many years. I have huge appreciation for what Rudy and Joan have done for the Tri community in Ontario (and Canada in general). They are great people and great role models.

That's why it's sad to see the newsletter going downhill and becoming more about ads promoting for-profit enterprises.

If I have to read "Injured? Stiff?" one more time I think I may vomit.

And holy christly christ what is up with the person who keeps putting in the whack-job ads for "neuro-kinetic therapy". (by the way, I'm a medical doc with a background in physics and I can tell you there is actually no such field, except perhaps in the mind of a few science-illiterate proponents). Apparently if you get your chakra realigned you will be a lot faster triathlete. I love the story of how the garmin watch was throwing off the person's whole neurologic system, and it took a special scan and amazing knowledge to find that out.

I was wondering if I can come to your clinic and have you scan me for alien probes. I am pretty sure there is one inside me somewhere that has been slowing me down the last few years. You might have to scan everywhere because you know where the aliens usually leave their probes...

ENOUGH ALREADY! GET THE HECK OFF TRIRUDY!!

4. DOGS CHASING BICYCLES
 Pat b   (General Comments)
skip to next       Back to top
 
It's been many years since I was chased by a dog on the bicycle. That all changed on Upper Oak Leaf Road just west of Athens. 1st this light brown mutt tried out. It ran beside me barking and showing it's fangs. the dog backed off when I yelled "stay." Then I slowed down a bit to recover and, lo and behold, the dog came back even though I'm sure I was long past it's territory. I yelled at it again and it left for good. About a kilometre later, 2 black or black with white trim, dogs started to aim for me and my bicycle again. I yelled "Hey" at them and they stopped immediately. Maybe dogs are just lonely on Upper Oak Leaf Road?
