Talk a crazy past few weeks. Well,...I suppose I should get right to the story which begins at The Toledo Dolphins Fan Club.
Being the 1st time back to the club since winning "The Boldest Fan" contest I wanted to "WOW' them,.....and possible generate some interest in our DCC efforts.
Shitty game, but a great time seeing the old gang. The club donated $1,....per every mile I will ride, a couple others have hit me up via my rider page, and I collected another $91 on week #1.
It was during that following week that things went into hypedrive. Firstly,....I was saddened to hear one of the members of the Deep End has a brother who now has cancer, and he is a young man. A day later The Phin Addicts dropped a $500 donation towards the cause. Talk about a rollercoaster of emotions. I am humbled.
And,...at the club !! They loved it and I collected another $54 towards the cause. I can't wait to take it to Cincy. Which brings me to the Cincy game. The Phinvaders group has now fallen into my controll for that weekend. If anyone is interested in getting tickets with our group contact me ASAP. I have cash in hand for 15 tickets and should be making a group purchase by the end of the week. Just waiting on a few others to get their money to me by weeks end, bring our total group to around 25 ( or more). I certainly wasn't looking to run this weekend, but based on how past events have gone,.....I can't think of a better person to be the glue that keeps everything together. If interested,....contact me as it is going to be a crazy good time. Our group may not be the biggest, but I can imagine our tailgate party being huge !
I got some funny friends. While hanging out with a buddy, he says "I got something you might like to see". Its a 1960 Huffy Daisy tandem made in Dayton , Ohio ! She's a tank, and needs some love. But, I'll get her rolling again.
Since I'm on the subject on bicycles, I guess I should mention the DCC again. At a mere $1 per member, The Phinsider should be crushing it, but saddly you are getting your asses kicked by the Toledo Club & The Phin Addicts. If you are waiting for an inviatation to d something good,....here it is. Anything helps,.....
I'll be honest,....the day of the ride will be one very happy day for me. It's not easy asking for money over & over again,....in several different areas of my life. But I'm one of the lucky ones,....I have my health. I also seems to have a certain zest for this so called life. And with that I will continue to ask for just $1 per member in all my posts until after the ride. Certainly the post that follows the Cincy trip should be interesting. Then I could do OFF4L Jock Jams ; Ride, Fight, & Fuck edtion complete with DCC theme song post. I will admit,...I can not wait to drop the Team OFF4L 2012 uniform unveil ( complete with bike upgrades ). Then of course after we leave the Fall weather of Ohio, we'll make a 7 night stay in the NJ/NYC area. More sightseeing in the Big Apple, then I get to see the Fins v Jets on the road with 175 other hardcore fans with the group of DolFansNYC ! Only to leave there the following Monday driving straight to the Miami area to get my ride on. Sure,....I might even throw a few surprises your way as well. I've got a busy mind, an a active imagination you know.
So, with the Jets coming to town,....the gloves are off. How many of you can throw an old dog a bone and kick in a buck ? Fuck cancer, I'm going from Toledo, Ohio to Miami, Florida to ride 170 miles on my bicycle like a champion !
