By the way - anyone that hasn't seen Bobke's commercial can see it on that
Esquire site. Be ready to laugh pretty loudly.

Yes I like Bob Roll too. A very entertaining person and a true man of
the road. But I don't follow the link. I don't watch commercial on
purpose and I question the judgement of this Tom person.

So let me get this straight - you didn't watch it AND you're questioning my
judgment? Obviously I have to wonder from what point of view you're
criticizing.

I watched it and did think "Hey... I'm deliberately watching a
commercial...weird." However, it IS a bike commercial, and it's a
perfect example of Bob Roll's brand of humor, so thanks for pointing
it out.

You can meet a lot of hot chicks on commercials.

I remember the Kokanee Beer add with those three
hotties wearing the little white bikinis while they
were snow boarding down the mountain.

No, I'm Canadian. Have you heard of it? We watch American television.

I seem much nicer after a drink,

I don't care. Anyone who encourages Bob Roll to produce more greenhouse
gases is evil!

>We watch American television.


Don't pretend to be normal with ME! I've been to Canada. I saw the most
BIZARRE thing ever in Victoria B.C. Absolutely inexplicable.

What is the meaning of this? If it'd been a liquor store, or even an
ice cream parlor, I could get my brain around it. But this?!?

I seem much nicer when I'm catatonic.

It's a perceptive article. But Bob Roll is not the
heart of American bicycle racing. Bob Leibold is
the heart of American bicycle racing. Kurgan will
back me up on this.

Victoria is a wonderful, terrible place. They have their own velodrome,
you know?

She's my little rock and roll, ah, ah, ah, ah
Oh, oh, she's my little rock and roll, baby

Dropping names and telephone number and all, ah

She's my little rock and roll, ah, ah, ah

The pool's in but the patio ain't dry

She's my little rock and roll, ah, ah, ah,
Oh, oh, she's my little rock and roll, ah
You got to shock them, show them
She's my little rock and roll, yeah
Shock, shock, shock, my, my, my
