Remember that time Scanlon almost ran headlong into a bear while riding the luscious remnants of the Paranormal loop?
Of course you don't. You weren't there. No one was, except for Scanlon and the bear, and even they probably don't really know how close they came.
But, it was almost awesome. And I have photos. With date and time stamps.
If Scanlon had been running 3 hours and 40 minutes late that day, this could have been awesome. In a parallel universe, he WAS running that late, and there was a man vs. nature battle scene that unfolded like something out of The Revenant.
"That bike was all I HAD."
And if that doesn't make you want to go for a long ride in the wilds of the Northside territory this Sunday with a bunch of dudes who sort of care about your well being, but not really, then don't show up for the Fall Classic. But if the adventure of it all stirs you, and you don't already know about the Classic, then inquire within.
Either way, watch your six.
Up, up, up.
