Riding with Floyd

So I stopped by REI yesterday to pick up my packet for the STP. (By the way, I'm just going to ride the first 110 miles and then have Wendy pick me up, so don't expect some epic tale on Monday about how I rode the 204 miles into a headwind, my neck aching, my knee throbbing, my nose bleeding...) When I got back on my bike to head to work, I noticed another rider who looked exactly like Floyd Landis, complete with the witch's nose and lantern jaw, only he seemed a little puffier than the guy who won the Tour de France last year. I almost said something to him, but what? "Duh, are you Floyd Landis?" Nah. I have a strict policy of not talking to any celebrity. Besides, why would Floyd Landis be in Seattle? Well, he was in Seattle. And you know what that means? That's right. Floyd Landis is one of my riding buddies.
