I am still laughing at this! This guy comes dressed up as a hedgehog and steals the show last night. I don't think anyone there laughed so darn hard. At first we thought maybe the guy in the costume had one to many DUI's and was just walking home from work. Then he started running along the riders as they came down the home stretch. Then he went around the other side of the course and sat in the corner for a bit. Then, the kicker! He made his way around to Scott Witt, who was marshaling turn 1 with his tunes jamming. Then we all saw it. Scott and the hedgehog were dancing in the streets!
A bunch of riders came out tonight, I think our best attendance yet. Patrick Fasse called out our elite men's squad as he was dropping the hammer tonight (where were you guys?) Then, this new girl, who we later found out was with team Tati and brand new to racing or cycling, came out and attempted to steal the show without Andy Kerr and the other 100 Bicycle Heaven riders even knowing. She was strong and went off the front on Andy Kerr and collected some points. As a matter of fact, she went so far off the front that we at first thought she was off the back. Her name is Liz So is and the area's elite women need to keep an eye out for this up-and-comer. [Rumor has it Stacy, Kristen and Jessi will be out here next week].
The hedgehog guy has many different costumes that he will be showing up in, and tonight they said something about a red carpet with silent call ups next week.
Also, Steve Crane gets [docked] 5 points for punching the hedgehog in the nose.
We hope Riccio is getting a discount for the amazing primes he brings us week in and week out. And what about Konrad, I think he deserves a little break, or at least more heckling. Those brownies that Sue made for tonight, OH MY GOD DELICIOUS! There was like a candy bar in the middle. Oh so wrong, but oh so yummy at the same time. Can you believe we actually handed out a 6-pack prime tonight? I didn't even drink it!
Andy Kerr, what can I say about this guy. He shows up with a 6-pack ofTwo Brothers Prairie Path ale that was insanely yummy, a very large Rosattis pizza that was delicious, and a 6-pack of some wicked nasty ginger beer in case Konrad [the 16 year old] won a prime. And he almost won it, except Andy Kerr snuck up on him to steal his own prime! The only thing is, people decided to drink it after Konrad didn't get it toteach Andy to pick on little kids :p Seriously, if you haven't triedGinger Beer, DON'T! I don't care what Lisa says, that stuff was madeto clean up bathrooms I think.
What a blast tonight. I don't know if that can be beat, but I am willing to bet that Mayor Hog from Woodstock will try hard next week with whatever he has up his sleeve.
