It is 48 degrees here in Denver for the first time in a month and we could top 50+. I sprained my wrist about a month ago and it is finally healed enough to ride nromally. Perfect day for a ride BUT...

Today is Avalanche v. Red Wing II. I want to ride! I NEED to ride! But, but it's AVS Deadwings. Oh crap, gotta go with the hockey.

Does anyone feel my pain?

Ride!

I feel your pain, but you have a choice. Today is the first >40 non-wet/messy day we've had here. I had already committed to a dance performance. All my backstage time was spent looking out a window and thinking I should be out there.

Go ride!!! If not for yourself, then for me!

5 -2 AVS and I still had time to ride for an hour and a half! I love when a plan comes together.

....UNLESS it is the Avalanche vs Red Wings. Of course, I watch the game while pounding away on my trainer here in Minneapolis where, erm....outdoor cycling isn't exactly an option right now. Go Av's

The matter is over now, but sitting on the couch watching a sporting event-no matter how important-should never take precedence over the opportunity for a nice ride.
I''ve been a hockey fan most my life and have no guilt about watching an Avs v Red wings game. I do need to ride more but I generally commute to work every day 30 mi round trip and am far from turning into a coach potato.

BTW Double nickels on the Dime is my favorite Minutemen album. D. Boon was the man!

The NY Yankees of hockey should win every game they play.
Hey, the RANGERS are the Yankees of baseball salary wise. Avs don't have near there payroll. Karya took a 9 mill PAYCUT to play here.

Hockey is the only other sport where players have the heart of cyclists. Winning the Stanley Cup is right there with winning a major Tour in the amount of epic agony you overcome to achieve your goal.
