Getting My Hopes Up
There have been several movements on the membership drive toward KENDA. I showed up in Canal for the Sunday 8:00am ride and discovered Paul & Janet and Grand Poobah there...what a great opportunity to make a good impression. A few minutes prior to the ride start, I suddenly yelled, "Mechanical" and began acting as if I was performing a repair to my bike. Out of the corner of my eye I caught Janet and Paul smiling and nodding their approval. Later, as we turned off Winchester onto the hills on Amanda Northern, I pulled alongside Janet and acted as if I was laboring while saying, "All that weight loss has turned you into a climbing machine". (I can be so suave when I need to be). I then drifted back as if I was being dropped. Later, Poobah and I got away on Amanda Northern and while watching him in my mirror, I noted he was about to blow a gasket so I slowed enough to keep him in my slipstream. Finally then there was this statement made to me by Poobah and I quote, "I'm going to have a big surprise for you on Tuesday". I think this is it, promotion from Prospect to Member. Tuesday can't get here fast enough!!!!!!!
As for the ride, I had to be back home by noon for the "Super Bowl" of a flag football league in which my son played so I cut the ride short (which should also put me in good stead with the Kendaites) and took the 40 mile option with Rick from Cyclist Connection, Ross, Tall Dude, Savage Hill Rick, and a few others. Good group. Regarding the football event, the coaches son broke his ankle early in the game and I was summoned to take over head coaching duties so the coach could take his son to the hospital. The players told me not to worry about it, they knew all the plays and my son told me to just stay out of the way. Using my years of experience watching NFL and college games, I kept shouting for someone to make the big play and they did often enough, rolling to a 33-24 win. Yeah, Super Bowl winning coach looks good on my resume.
