My Dad To Me: Go For The Tour!

I received the following email from my father on Wednesday: "Just in case you missed it: Armstrong at 37 is gearing up to race again in Le Tour. You're only 38. Why not? I'm behind you all the way."

I can barely ride my bike up my driveway, but since my father says he's supporting me...

Anyone out there willing to sponsor me?

I'll also need a directeur sportif. Any volunteers?

Plus, I need someone to fill my water bottles and keep me topped off with that gel stuff cyclists "eat."

Finally (and most importantly), I'll need someone to provide urine and blood samples for me, since I'm going to be juiced to the max.

Paris, here I come!

I will be your water bottle filler.

Sweet! Only pure Evian, by the way (or whatever other water company will sponsor me).

Any more takers?

I'll follow you around in a bus for moral support (reference to Les Triplettes de Belleville)

Corry Cropper said...

Excellent. I'll hold on to the bus when the route is uphill...

I will be your coach or provide the blood samples - your choice. I would prefer the first and I assume you would rather I only took care of the latter.
4am tomorrow will be our first practice. Or would 3am work better?

I'll knock on your door a little before 3AM. Have the cold weather neoprene booties ready. And could you please just leave a pint of blood twice a week in the milk cooler on my porch? Next to the eggs would be fine...
