Another Important Update!!! I just received a call from Steve Oxley (also known as Steve O.). Oxley Financial Services will match, dollar for dollar, money I collect tonight, not to exceed $100. I warned Steve that even if I collect $4.55, I will claim I collected $100 so as a bonus, Steve will ride tonight and probably act as my finance minister to prevent me from pocketing any of the cash rather than forward to Paul Stock.
UPDATE: I suspect 80-90% of you think this is a gag or if I do show up with beer it will be the cheapest of the cheap. I completely understand this thought but I just returned from shopping and included in the mix is: Asahi Dry (I used to drink this in Japan and surprised to see it available), Coors Light, Heineken and regular Bud, along with soft drinks too. If you want to donate which I will forward to Paul, that's ok but if you just crave a cold one after the hot ride and are low on cash don't hesitate to grab a can/bottle.
Paul Stock, will again be passing out free energy drinks after the New Albany COP Thursday ride. However, I (not pictured) will also be there with a cooler, ice and cold beer----FREE!!!! Now, some of you will assume I am doing this to undermine my good friend Paul.....not true. For every dollar donated to me for providing the free beer, I will donate THAT SAME DOLLAR to Paul's Pelotonia effort. To clarify, I ain't donating a dollar of my own for every dollar collected from you, that would be too much after buying some very expensive lagers and bitters. No, I will just pass on every dollar I collect. Special Note to Flyin Tuna: You may take one home for Rod but if you stuff the jersey again and put down only a buck or two, that is not allowed.
