Beer, Beer and more Beer

So it's Wednesday morning, and I'm now moved my status from "sick" to "under the weather" - whatever that means. Well, I guess it means that I'll be working today.

Attempt #1 at compiling photographs was a flop - we tried to copy the pics to a CD without luck - some glitch in the matrix - so we'll have to go to plan B and, well once we figure out what plan B is, we'll let you know.

Everyone's thoughts should be with Commadore and his family today. He took a nasty fall and may have to deal with a concussion (yet another concussion) - hang tough there, Comms!

It's funny - you finish up a great weekend meeting friends and watching great feats of athletic strength and endurance, and you almost don't know where to start. At least with a race recap, you have a logical flow to it. I guess I could start with a Fri-Mon theme, but I'm also wanting to avoid telling other folks stories. I'm sure my mind's still just a bit cloudy from the cold - work should be interesting today.

The one thing I did notice was just how much beer Taconite Boy can consume - man, that guy just put one down after another. Beer, Beer, Beer. That's all he could think about. When superhero's go on vacation, they drink ungodly amounts of beer. Now we know why PCB ran out of beer - Taconite Boy drank it all. Nasty, greasy food and beer. If they sold beer IV's, he'd have been hooked up to one. I got alcohol poisoning just trying to keep up with him, and I outweigh him by 55 lbs! The man needs help. We need an intervention.

Oh, and remember, most of what I write about this PCB IM weekend will not be true, well, not totally true.

Glad you are feeling a little better.

Hope you get the picture glitch worked out (I think).

I have evidence of Tac and the beer on my blog. Went to snap a picture and he was turning it up.

Glad you're feeling better, mate!

why do you think I work an extra job....? I didn't know how low my tanks had gotten until we started laughing Sunday night- what a great weekend! Next time we just need to make it a longer weekend

Ahh, I see you have inadvertently discovered the midwesterners secret weapon in fighting the bitter cold (or at least not being able to feel it)...... large amounts of beer. Beer brats, beer bread, or just plain old Old Milwaukee will do.
Just how cold is cold to you Floridians? Like 70?

Has anyone ever seen Taconite Boy and Homer Simpson in the same room? Coincidence? I think not.

Podium quest said...

Beers made with grains. Very nutritious. Hope you heal up quick!

Tri-Dummy said...

You and Di are the pic masters.

Well if you say it and people can't deny it that is A truth, isn't it?

Well, I'm not sure I should be sharing this, but you know the Rocky Point Triathlon serves Tacate (Kegs) at the finish line...


It's is THE race :-)
