|Okay, so I'm wandering past a deli in a little strip mall||bill|

|in Arlington, Virginia at lunchtime today. I see a bike leaning against one of the tables that catches my eye. Bikes here are nothing unusual; a bike path runs right behind the place, and people often stop to grab a sandwich and a drink (great sandwiches!). There's a bike shop right next door, to boot.
But it's a nice looking red Waterford, Dura Ace, clean. I also notice that the chain is on the big ring and smallest cog, meaning either that the rear wheel was just mounted on the bike, which seems unlikely, or that the rider is just a plain monster, because the area is fairly hilly, with lots of short steep inclines, which is more likely. That's right, Mr. Holmes, monster rider in for a sandwich.
The other thing I notice is that the owner has her name stenciled on the top tube. I look, and the name rings a faint bell. Now, I'm not a fan's fan, but the Clarendon Cup Race is in Arlington this weekend, and I'm thinking that the name must be familiar because the rider is a pro whose name I should know. The big ring and all confirms it, right?
I half think that I should poke my head into the deli and see what there is to be seen. But then I think, nah, uncool. What am I going to do, oogle?
So, when I get back to the office, I do a google search. Turns out that the name IS a name I should know, and she is, indeed, a pro. But not a pro cyclist.
The name? Jenna Jameson. Porn star (I've been listening to too much Howard Stern).
My brush with greatness. Nice bike, too.
|Oh, sure. Blame Howard Stern! :-) nm||rideslikeagirl|

|Jenna would probably prefer a tuna melt over a weiner, if you know what I mean.......|

|I was merely stating, in a humourous way (you DO know what humor is, don't you?), that Jenna prefers the company of women. I was not making a moral or any other kind of judgement. BTW-some of the best people I have known(some of them gone now), have been gay, so BACK OFF.|
|OK, I'm guessing The Italian Store for the Deli.||djg|

|And it's just too cheap and easy to guess the sandwich.|
|I have very mixed feelings about this experience. Here I am,||bill|

|thinking, nice bike, when there's a real honest-to-goodness porn star just a few feet away that I am never going to get another chance to see in her little biking shorts. All the while I'm wondering whether she's with Saturn or whatever.
You know? Although I never would have noticed the bike had I not been into cycling, I never would have been confused about who the f*ck Jenna Jameson was, either, and I would have thought up some excuse to go in there. Or, what am I saying; no excuse at all. No excuse necessary -- she's a PORN star, for crissakes.
|What excuse did you need Bill?||djg|
May 30, 2002 1:03 PM
|You go in, you buy a sandwich, or maybe some pasta for the house, and you see what you see. Never heard of her myself, but I barely have the strength to watch regular cable these days. I'd like to think they'll put her picture on the wall with the other famous customers--maybe in between Sandra Bullock and Nino Scalia.|
|yeh, Willard Scott and Jenna Jameson, mugging over a salami. nm||bill|

|I dunno about Willard, but as for Jenna and a salami....||Ahimsa|

|ditto that's his ride ;)||cyclopathic|

|it could be but....||rtolle|
May 30, 2002 2:23 PM
|it sure made a hell of a story! And for anyone who doesn't know Jenna Jameson check out your local video store. It will be well worth the trip.|
|Yep. Lowend is on the mark.||Ahimsa|

|Not that much of a stretch for a rider to name his "other woman" after ol' Jenna.
I doubt the real deal Ms. Jameson rides a Waterford.
I think that what with Drunkcyclist.com having a huge fascination with the porn star in question, it is more likely that you came across a frequent visitor of that site.

|and i would assume the rider left it that way so anyone with the bright idea of hopping on and riding off with it would end up falling over, giving him plenty of time to run out and nab him.|
|Great Idea, Thanks NM||Lowend|

|I was with the family and In-Laws at Disney World and saw Ron Jeremy with two bimbos, one on each arm, strolling through MGM Studios theme park headed for the Tower of Terror. Of course I had to point it out. The wife was not impressed with my classic porn knowledge what so ever.|

|Only this time I bet ya go in for a "roll" and something... "hot and sweet" to perk you up.
At least you have a line of introduction. "Wow!... Nice bike! Do you wanna go for a ride with me?!!!"
Good luck, may the force be with you.
