Hi Sara, I think that the AFLD is acting not to close a remote loophole (that would not be necessary anyway since the ASO invites who it wants to the TdF despite any break with the UCI) I think, as do many others, that they are a bit worried that Floyd might win his CAS appeal, and they want to make sure on that basis that he could not find a last minute team and participate (not that this would be likely either, IMO)

The AFLD move is not surprising. With ASO breaking off with the UCI, it is increasingly apparent that they will exclude whomever they choose from their races. The break from the UCI was never viewed as an opening for sanctioned riders. On the contrary, now ASO will have no one telling them who will and who will not participate in their races. The Pro Tour is irrelevant to them. There was never any loophole. Now the only recourse for riders is to go to CAS much like Valverde did, but with ASO having no agreements with any governing body, there's little chance that there will be any grounds for such action.

So, today some poor person typed "Herman's Hermits at the baltimore civic center in 1967" into Google and ended up here!

That's all you Waddy. From your comment a few weeks ago about the first concert you remember.

Poor lost Herman's Hermits fan. You've gone the wrong way. Turn around. Run away.

I love this place.

The hysteria that started in Stuttgart has continued as the UCI has booted Diluca from the points series because of his sanction. The sanction was not for a positive drug test but for contact with an italian doctor from a few years ago. Now I love the fact that Cadel Evans now has the jersey but the way this went down is weird. Diluca gets to keep the victories of the season before the sanction but he does not get to keep the points? It is our game so we get to play the way we want!

I prefer to remember it as The Who and Herman's Hermits, but in fact it was billed the other way around and The Who were the opening band. Years later I had a summer job with a woman who had been in the audience and caught and still had one of Keith Moon's drumsticks that he threw into the audience.

I never looked at my comments, or the comments of anyone else as something that would somehow bring people here, but now that you mention it, I'm going to start thinking before I type.

Waddy, don't know if I've told you before or not but that Herman's Hermits concert with The Who was also my very first concert! As you said, the hilarious thing was that Herman was the main act and The Who opened -- they really were "the WHO???" back then! LOL - Crazy.

Larry, Camille emailed this to me back in April & I thought of it immediatedly when reading your '5 Rules for Men' earlier today. Enjoy. :


THE WHY's OF MEN


1. WHY DO MEN BECOME SMARTER DURING SEX?
(because they are plugged into a genius)


2. WHY DON'T MEN BLINK DURING SEX?
(they don't have enough time)


3. WHY DOES IT TAKE 1 MILLION SPERM TO FERTILIZE ONE EGG?
(they don't stop to ask directions)


4. WHY DID GOD MAKE MEN BEFORE WOMEN?
(you need a rough draft before you make a final copy)


5. HOW MANY MEN DOES IT TAKE TO PUT A TOILET SEAT DOWN?
(don't know....it's never happened)


6. WHY DID GOD PUT MEN ON EARTH?
(because a vibrator can't mow the lawn).


I'm just sayin'....


:) :) :)

Sara, I found out what I am doing "wrong" when I post on your blog, I hit "back" to get back to the original post and it posts my comment again. Silly me!!! It won't happen again, probably...

Camille

That must have been some other Camille, Susie. I'm much too ladylike to send out an email like that.

Waddy

Q: What do you call the useless fold of skin around the penis...

A: A man.

Larry

Camille & Susie B - touche'.

You two are really one person, aren'tcha?

ps Susie B - my first hockey game of the season will be this coming Sunday. I can taste the post-game beer already.

Amy

Thanks Waddy. I just choked on my coffee :)

THE WISE (OF) MEN
1. WHY DO MEN BECOME SMARTER DURING SEX?
(because they are plugged into a genius)
True, we will become freaking Einstein if it gets us sex!

2. WHY DON'T MEN BLINK DURING SEX?
(they don't have enough time)
Whats your point? WE got ours, and JUST in time for Monday Night Football too!

3. WHY DOES IT TAKE 1 MILLION SPERM TO FERTILIZE ONE EGG?
(they don't stop to ask directions)
Actually it takes a million of the little guys to find ONE that is TRULY interested in having kids and not just having sex.

4. WHY DID GOD MAKE MEN BEFORE WOMEN?
(you need a rough draft before you make a final copy)
Actually, somebody had to be there to squish all the spiders first.

5. HOW MANY MEN DOES IT TAKE TO PUT A TOILET SEAT DOWN?
(don't know....it's never happened)
WHAT'S YOUR PROBLEM? WE had to put the dang thing UP! YOU have gravity on your side! Would you prefer a wet seat? It's your call.

6. WHY DID GOD PUT MEN ON EARTH?
(because a vibrator can't mow the lawn).
Too dang bad too! It would solve a lot of OUR problems if it could! (Don't talk to me, I'm watching football...talk to the vibrator!)

And just keep in mind you naughty posters the Google Hits poor Sara will be getting down the road from THIS conversation!

Camille

Larry, yes, but Susie has the thinking/working part of our brain. Mine is the chillin' side.

THE WHY's OF MEN

1. WHY DO MEN BECOME SMARTER DURING SEX?
(because they are plugged into a genius)

while the blood (rich in oxygen) is being re-routed to more pressing needs, the brain switches to carbon monoxide (rich in endorphins, seratonin)as a fuel source.


2. WHY DON'T MEN BLINK DURING SEX?
(they don't have enough time)
cause they're just focusing to hurry up and get to the "hugging, snuggling, cuddling spooning" good stuff


3. WHY DOES IT TAKE 1 MILLION SPERM TO FERTILIZE ONE EGG?
(they don't stop to ask directions)
cause there is only one egg, and they hide it for 28-30 days while they make up their mind whether they want to hatch it or not. It takes 1 million noble, sacrificial sperm to search and save the egg. So that (wo)mankind might perserve.


4. WHY DID GOD MAKE MEN BEFORE WOMEN?
(you need a rough draft before you make a final copy)
somebody had to bite the apple! Where would we be without Vitamin C? C'mon, think about it!

5. HOW MANY MEN DOES IT TAKE TO PUT A TOILET SEAT DOWN?
(don't know....it's never happened)
the same number as women to leave the seat cover up cause some of us pee in the dark - standing up!


6. WHY DID GOD PUT MEN ON EARTH?
(because a vibrator can't mow the lawn).
without it there can be no desperate housewives. Duh?!
