At a bar yesterday, I met a very drunk fellow who claimed to have been a pro racer in Europe and Mexico. He also claimed to have just missed making the US Olympic cycling squad, I believe some time in the '80s. Furthermore, he claims to have been on the US Olympic wrestling team.

Interestingly, his cycling-related stories indicated that he had some knowledge of the cycling scene. He also has a cyclist's build. In his drunk and inarticulate fashion, he was able to discuss team tactics and named off a lot of cyclists who are not household names.

The most entertaining parts of our conversations were his various claims that he had either kicked the ass of, or come close to kicking the ass of: Greg LeMond, Wayne Stetina, Raul Alacala, Laurent Fignon, and Lance Armstrong, among others.

When I last saw him, he was passed out in an alley on the back steps of a restaurant. His girlfriend was on the cell phone trying to arrange a ride home. Since returning home, I ran the name he gave me, along with some cycling terms, on various web sites and came back with no hits. If nothing else, it made for a somewhat entertaining 45 minutes or so waiting to see if he was going to take a swing at me before passing out.

There you go again. Trying to disprove what others say to you. You must really have a "cushy" life with no real worries or responsibilities to even give a rat's ass about what other people say.
I find it more bizarre that you would: a. listen to the guys bulldsh$% for that long and b. investigate it further when you got home. Lends credence to my theory that you are OCD. Seriously, have you ever been to a psychiatrist or therapist for your obsessive traits?

"You must really have a "cushy" life with no real worries or responsibilities to even give a rat's ass about what other people say."

If so, what does this say about you, cosidering the fact that you took the time to read and respond to my post? Seriously, dude, I'm starting to worry about you. I think you're obsessed with me. Why are you following me around and responding to posts that have nothing to do with you? (Sound familiar, moron?)

Exactly, I don't think I even interacted with you in 6+ months. I must hae cabin fever or something because I normally don't respond to your posts. They ususally don't involve me therefore I stay away, but you still bring my name up here and there in one of your pathetic attempts to disparage my good name.
This last post of yours was too much to resist because it displays your anal-retentive nature all to well. Now go wash your hands and alphabetize your CD collections.

Playing amateur psychologist again? As far as I know, taking Psych 101 at Brooklyn Community College doesn't qualify you to diagnose people you've never met. BTW, if you really think I'm anal retentive, you should look at the tile on floor of my shower for starters. In all honesty, you're the only person who has ever put that label on me, which is particularly funny in light of the fact that you're a nuttier than a fruitcake. (That's my amateur diagnosis.)

NYU and Rutgers University if it matters to you. Plus I am not diagnosing you as a clinician but rather someone who finds you annoying.
Your attention to detail about mundane and insignificant things is indicative of anal retentiveness. Whether or not you are too lazy to fix a tile in yout shower is irrelevant. You still are a weirdo that perseverates on unimportant details. Or is that the Esquire in you? You annoying bastard. LOL

"NYU and Rutgers University if it matters to you." Are you saying you were a subject in clinical studies at these institutions? Now it's starting to make sense.
