Online poll - Am I funny?

Discussion in 'Triathlon' started by Father Guido Sa, Mar 27, 2003.

  1. Slabby,

    My gentle son, I did not give the evidence for my conclusion but rather just the conclusion itself.
    You are correct, what people think of me may not be related to what people think of themselves. On
    the other hand, can anyone hang with the cycling boyz and with a straight face tell me that they
    aren't full of themselves? They are pretty to watch, but not as much fun actually talking to them.
    Know what I mean? Ever have that feeling before? Pretty on the outside, but ugly on the inside.

    Fr. Guido

  3. No, you are not funny. You're already on probation. My recommendation for you is to leave the
    group now.

    I gotta admit, as a redneck from south Texas, I gotta wonder about a bunch of guys who have smoother
    legs than their wives! OK, Lance and company, fine. They need every break they can get time-wise,
    and they rack up enough FAST AND LOOSE miles to really worry about road rash. But a bunch of weekend
    rider domestique wannabees? And with those spandex pants? Let's just say that I wouldn't want to
    have to spend any time with the Father looking like THAT! One word of support - take the good ol'
    hometown hero. He's got a knockout wife and two beautiful kids - and he's playing around?
    OOOKKKAYYYYYYYY...

    My guess is that many of the elite cyclings, triathletes, etc, ARE self-absorbed jerks. Of course,
    the same can be said for ANY elite group - singers, newsmen (Peter Arnett?), basketball players,
    politicians, etc, etc, etc. To get to the top, you usually have to have an ego the size of Texas and
    then some, plus the constant dedication to your field which can easily make one self-absorbed and
    narcissistic. The more success you get, the more it feeds it. So while there may be some validity
    picking on cyclists, it's only because they are a part of a bigger group of elite ANYTHING. In and
    of themselves they are nothing unusual.
     
  6. You're out of line, buckaroo. Lassoo that ego in pardner.
