Nevermind


I know I owe you a post about my trip Pennsylvania. I know the last post left you questioning my sanity and my sexuality. I know lack of sleep and extended sessions on Facebook have put my tenure as a bloggist in dire jeopardy. Personal disharmony, and my relationship with God, must be put aside so I can comment on my latest, and perhaps most noble pursuit: "The Monday Night TMBA Beginners/Kids Ride" or as I like to call it: "An Exorcise in Humility".


Foster Brooks and I have been hosting this ride for a few weeks now and I have to say I am proud to be included. Since #1 Son is riding, this is the perfect ride to build skills and ride with others on his level. For Lil W.B., it is a good venue to exercise his patience muscle.


Last nights group was a really good size, with a nice mix of adults and kids. Berg and Balzach were there to sign autographs and make everyone that didn't have rich parents wonder what it was like to have a full carbon, sub twenty two pound, race rig. We rode the new section of Red Bug trail, expertly planned out by Cliffbar and Silk (nice work boys). We rode the double track at Over Street, and finished up with the single track. The ride went off without a hitch, save me leading a little too slow and bunching everyone up on the climbs.


Here's where the story begins, at the end of the ride. A few of us adults were standing around when one of the riders turns to me and sheepishly says:

"It was nice to have a celebrity lead the ride!"

I turn to said sheepish adult and reply,

"Really who do you mean?"

"You, I read your blog all the time!"

Well I don't have to tell you dear readers, I was on my way to one of the proudest moments of my life and was finally learning the meaning of giving over receiving. The power of charity, was coursing through my Ghandiesc veins when one of the other adults chirped in.

"Oh you write that Blog? I love it! Whats the name of of it?"

"The Wrecking Ball Blog!" says I with my (pirates dream) chest stuck out.

"Oh I thought you were Jauncho! Now he is a WONDERFUL writer!"


If anyone needs me I will be in therapy.

Juancho is a wonderful writer in the way he writes and you are a wonderful writer in the way you write.
But I can see why the air in the balloon was so quickly dispelled. But you know what? If that person had really been paying attention to Juancho's blog, I don't think he would have confused a man with two sons to the Big Ring Circus guy.

I suppose I should have clarified that the two adults in question were women, making the burn that much hotter. The first was a genuine fan the other was the Yang. All in good fun, he is after all, my Blog Daddy!
Thanks for coming to the rescue Sis.

I hate to challenge a blogger on his own blog but NOT TRUE! W.B. was given full praise and kudos for his writing and wit. Juancho was also mentioned as another great writer. W.B you do have a darker side! Now you've forced me to come out of the lurker's shadow. BASTARD!! See, I know the difference between you two.

I read you and like it except for the crappy parts that don't relate to bicycles.

The ride was good, the company better. I've always enjoyed that kind of riding.

These comments are better than the ones on jauncho's blog.
