    Edit: My apologies, didn't mean to ruffle the feathers.

    Sorry to any and all I offended

    Actually I can tell you I didn't chuckle. As someone who cycles this is freakin scary as all get out.

    I like av8r didn't find it funny. I am a comeptitive triathlete and cycle year round. This isn't funny one bit, especially when I personally know people that have been hit and died.

    So the answer is emphatically no-there isn't one bit of giggling going on. Did you also giggle when the WTC's fell? Come on man, death isn't "giggly".


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    Re: 1 dead as car plows into Mexican bike race

    I saw this yesterday... That is horrible, and can you imagine the feeling of the riders when they knew they were gonna be plowed in to.

    And Bader... Maybe you are stuck in a ******* mentality...

    Re: 1 dead as car plows into Mexican bike race

    I saw this in the newspaper this AM, and no, I didn't feel the need for a chuckle.

    I save that for Garfield and more lighthearted fare.

    I first thought it was fake, and then I realized it was real and put my wallet away, because I was planning on going bike shopping today.

    My first reaction was to check Snopes, then I saw the MSNBC link. That's awful.

    To be honest, at first I thought this could have been an intentional thing. That picture is awful.
