HELP SEND MR SPIN TO THE TOUR(8 posts)

HELP SEND MR SPIN TO THE TOURmr_spin
May 21, 2002 8:03 AM
I know it's a long shot, but Mr Spin would love to see the Tour in person, but wasn't invited. I thought I'd try making one of those chainmail letters like Specialized did for Cipollini to try and get team Coast into the TDF. Also, if anyone can make a better translation into French than mine (I used the Altavista translator), please post it.-thanks
Just copy this letter and send it to (and forward it to as many of your friends, etc. as you can) mail@letour.fr :

To whom it may concern (Le Tour Organizers):
I beg that you consider inviting Mr Spin for an all expenses paid trip to Le Tour this year. I am aware of the fact that Mr Spin is not ranked high in the UCI rankings, or even low in the UCI rankings. In fact, Mr Spin does not even race. But Mr Spin would love to sit at the side of the road and watch Lance win another boring race. Perhaps you can provide a guide for Mr Spin. I suggest Alex Zulle or Fernando Escartin. Mr Spin can also assist in judging the podium babes.
Thank You

French:

À qui de droit (Le Tour Organizers):
Je prie que vous considérez d'inviter Mr Spin à Le Tour cette année. Sacre Bleu! La tete me tourne. Oo la la.

Merci

Every night, as I tuck my children in bed, they say "Daddy, why can't mr_spin be at the Tour De France?

Actually, they're not my kids. They're someone else's.
I had this dream last night...Spinchick

that I had been chosen to see the Tour - all expenses paid. Suddenly, that dream was yanked from me as the officials informed me that Mr. Spin had been chosen instead. Bastard!

a personal doping concocter and procurer.....

check all the other that get invited they all have them too and its a trend that is easy to see.

not that i know about EPO, diuretics and all that performance stuff but i am familiar with a few other banned substance forms and would be happy to help your tour eforts if i was offered a spot on your invitation. i think it well plausible but i am always bordering on delusional anyway.

given a chance im sure i could give Dr. Ferrari a run for his money and would ensure top gear....err i mean a 1st class attitude towards my responsibilities in assisting your tour de france efforts.

below is a cutout from a paper that had failed to get me a job but has for some reason resulted in more taps than an audition for "42nd st".

im sure we would make a powerfull addition to the tour and perhaps even come up with some interesting road graffiti for the helicopters so the rbr.com fans watching could sense their presence at the tour and beam with pride at the campy vs. shimano trolling. i would consider it the highest compliment to drop a bucket of paint in honor of our radical ron pruitt on the alpe d'huez. now thats art!!!
