Cyclists Are Good Basketball Players

That's what the honorary captain says. In order to prove it, he has challenged Utah Jazz sharpshooter Deron Williams to a combined ITT/3 point shooting challenge this Friday. That is awesome. More here.

Some members of the FGBC once played on a basketball team together. We were not very good at all. I suppose that means we should not consider ourselves real cyclists. Oh well. We are exactly what we are. Our being exactly what we are allowed us to enjoy numerous moments of genuine hilarity, such as the time Coach Unger and his foul mouth racked up a string of ten consecutive technicals, thereby turning what looked like it might be a narrow come from behind win for us into a rout by the other team.
