Re: Proud fathers thread.............post em' up!

I'll flip the script with today's story...

"THE GREAT RACE", starring Perron...
https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0?ui=2&a … 9981_0.1.1

Isaac aka Zeke...

and the vehicle aka the car...
https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0?ui=2&a … 91eb_0.1.1

So, my son and I rode our mountain bikes to the mechanic to pick up his car.  The mechanic is located about a mile from our house.  Zeke threw his bike in the back of the car, and got ready to drive home.  Half joking, I said, "Beat you home."  Chuckling, he replied, "Okay."  CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!!!

I got the jump, but got stuck at the mechanic's exit while waiting for traffic to thin out.  He rolled up behind me and waited.  Once traffic cleared, I took off like a bat outta hell, and beat him to the turn into our subdivision by using the sidewalk while he was forced to obey traffic patterns.  I went in hot, actually glad that road construction was all over the place because I know that a Schwinn Homegrown eats up dirt, divots, and gravel for breakfast.  I was comfortably in the lead...

...Until further down the paved street, where the boy overtook me, laughing as he passed me.  What he didn't know was that the approaching stop sign had a trick up its sleeve that would weigh in my favor -- a work van whose driver was in no particular hurry to take his turn going through the intersection!

I seized my chance.  As the van began its left turn in front of my son, I throttled toward the back of the van, cleared it and the intersection, got back on unpaved road, and hit the turn onto my street.  Once there, I upshifted, and sped into my driveway -- THE WINNER!!!

Don't know, but looks pretty complicated.

Re: Proud fathers thread.............post em' up!

Eli's 15U team played up, and combined with Isaac's High School team for a victory at Northwestern University this afternoon.  Coming back after dislocating his shoulder, Isaac pitched a solid inning of relief, and Eli held it down in RF for an inning.  Isaac is in the back row on the left, and Eli is front row center...

Just because I'm to big to ride it doesn't mean I'm not going to build it or buy it.
