A Transparent Attempt to Ingratiate Myself to our Neighbors to the North in Hopes They'll Let Me Move There After the Presidential Election in November

Happy Canada Day!


This holiday of course commemorates Canada's victory over the United States in the Maple Syrup Wars of 1846, which were as bloody as they were sticky and delicious:


It is traditional in the United States to observe Canada Day by going for a ride, so that's what I'm about to do.  But rest assured I'll be back a little later today with a more comprehensive Friday posting, so be sure to hit "refresh" over and over like a rat in a skinner box.

See you soon(-ish),

Riding to work this morning in Boulder, CO., fred capital of the intermountain west, I was passed by a BMW Z1 or M1, one of those $90k 2 seaters. It had a plastic race bike on the roof and the license plate was "AYHSMB." Could not get a photo.
What's more annoying Ted K. or TED Talks?

dancesonpedals said...

Isn't Canada like Australia with pine trees?

Spokey said...


should i be sad or happy that i have no idea what "AYHSMB" might mean?

Wildcat is on his husky Marin. Then, a second posting in one day?! Probably his way of softening the blow of the announcement that he's going to take next week off, i bet.

And where is the Ted Man? He's at home - washing his tights! Eh-hee-hee-hee-hee.

"All you haters suck my balls." Way back in the BSNYC archives, probably before the Wildcat Rock Machine days. Heady times indeed. Somebody put that sticker on the aerospoke wheel of his fixie.

Not a comment.... I just buy your latest book. I wanted to get a cap to wear so that I can ride my bike, reading your book and rocking a nice cap at the same time. BUT I live in China and waltz will not deliver! what to do???

Bryan said...

Im staying off the bike today so my legs can handle 5500 feet of climbing tomorrow! Wait, why do we even bother to ride again?

leroy said...

Well this is odd.

Usually when I hit the refresh key, kibble comes out of the back of my computer.

Today it's pemmican.

What's up with that, eh?

Happy Canada day. Open some bagged milk, get some Tim bits and blast some Tragically Hip.

hosers! highly recommend strange brew, the movie (and as a beer choice in general), as a historical (number of) minute(s).

TAKE OFF!

I've tried that ride shit. All you do is get tired and sweaty. Maybe I need to change my bar-tape wrap tension.

When you return you should edit "skinner" to read "Skinner", IMHO.

If HRC gets installed (depending on how the votes get "counted"), Canadianos may have to build a wall and make Amerika pay for it.

Gonna enjoy my epic bus ride later in the thundastorms.

Huh? What?

crosspalms said...

Isn't going for a ride the same as hitting "refresh"? Think I'll do that...

BikeSnobNYC said...

Well that was a fun ride.

Canada Day has a dark side too. For it is on this day, that in Canada, more dogs go astray than any other day of the year.

Catch and Releash said...

Should be called National Dog Collector Day then.
