That's a play on an awesome mini-diatribe from the movie with the greatest number of awesome cliches in one movie ever, Field Of Dreams.
|Greatest movie ever. I'm serious. Photo shamelessly ripped from its Wiki page.|
The diatribe being this:
Annie Kinsella: Who's for Eva Braun here? Who's for burning books? Who wants to spit on the constitution of the United States of America, anybody? Now who's for the Bill of Rights? Who thinks that freedom is a pretty darn good thing? Who thinks that we have to stand up to the kind of censorship that they had under Stalin?
But seriously, martyrdom was my motivation for selling my carbon fiber road bike on Craigslist today. Really.
I think you can clearly see that I was happy in the Garden of Eden and that I will therefore be miserable without it, but damnit, my principles dominate my needs. If Lance is banned, then so am I. And if I had a tri bike and a wetsuit, I'd have sold them too. In a heartbeat. At yard sale prices! Take that, Tygart, you bastard!!!
And just in case you think I'm kidding, here's the ad:
Okay, so the real reason I sold it is that I need space and cash for a new bike I am jonesing over. But don't tell Tygart. I enjoy seeing him squirm.
The other reason I don't want my true motives revealed is that I've apparently been awarded some Tour Victories, by default, since they couldn't find anyone clean who was actually racing. If you don't believe me, check out the notification from the TdF Organizing Committee that appeared in the comments section of my last post. As history will now show, I beat Pantani up Ventoux, just barely.

Oh wait. Maybe he just barely beat me. Or maybe I let him win???
Just shut your pie hole about whatever you know or think you know. Or I'll have to go to the USADA or WADA or TMZ with the dirt I have on you. And I am NOT bluffing.
Krap. How did this all get so political. I thought we were just riding our bikes.
