Mongo, after hammering the hills for an hour this morning, has come to an unwavering conclusion.

The newest trend in Hollywood is cycling movies about Spanish dudes, starring Spanish dudes. Coincidentally, a Spaniard is about to win this year's Tour de France.
Unfortunately for Sastre, he looks about twenty years older than he actually is, so a slimmer, ah yes...how you say, Antonio Banderas, wouldn't be totally out of the question.
Fortunately for the rest of us, that won't be necessary. Sastre already has a doppelganger who, with the right script, would be willing to strap on a Cervelo. Respected character actor and already skinny...John Turturro.

Just like Mongo after a few too many trips to the pavement, Damiano "Faux-Hawk" Cunego calls it a day and abandons the Tour. The little prince never really was a factor, but he was riding a respectable race none the less.
Team "Air Drop" took their fifth win of the Tour with Marcus Burghardt...I know, me neither!

Don't f**k with a wounded Bear! (Or some other analogous large, powerful, hairy, creature)
Mongo took his injured knee and smashed face to the S.B.A.D.M.V.V.L. Hammerfest on Monday. I shouldn't have, but my rep in the barrio was on the line. It was 96 degrees with 200% humidity...and all the ballers were there!
"Give no quarter, Take no quarter"...If you show up to ride, you better be ready to go.
The pain I experienced in my knee during the climbs was so severe that I have probably started in motion a lifetime of knee surgeries. On a brighter note, I am happy to report that not only did I keep up and have a respectable day, but I never cried...in view of anyone else.

Mongo is still recovering from his own crash last Thursday, but if the swelling in my knee goes down tomorrow, I'll make a heroic and miraculous return to the S.B.A.D.M.V.V.L. Hammerfest only four days after the fact. Whether or not I can complete the circuit is another story, but my street cred will go through the roof!

There are walls of circumstance around the years I have lost
A chameleon: A sociopath: A renaissance man
I had knowledge without wisdom and expectations unfulfilled
A self-indulgent spectator seeking refuge in my addictions
The eyes of youth and injustice have cleared…what do I do now?”
The Vans Warped Tour just rolled through the ATL, bringing skateboarding and angst-filled music to the kids.
Of course, Mongo is too old to "appreciate" any of the bands rockin' the festival these days, but anything that combines skateboarding and stickin' it to the man...you can count me in.

Across the wall is greener grass… I know it’s not for me
No misunderstandings in pursuit of a feeling
A clear perception of the ways of civilization
Smile now at the wash of overwhelming simplicity
Entertained by the minstrels in a fascinating aside”
