Any press is good press

It's been a great week for Brian Lopes in the news.

We discovered that BL55 was Jared Graves idol as a kid...

And this happened on twitter. I can't believe this is real, but it is, and I cannot in good conscience not repost this:

No, seriously, this really happened. Sometimes the clouds part, and the gods smile upon us, and they gift us. Today is one of those days.

I don't know if you know who Mario Cipollini is, but he's sort of the best sprinter to ever live, his trophy case has more gold in it than Fort Knox, and his party reputation makes Cedric look like Ned Flanders. He fits pretty securely in the "nothing left to prove to anyone" category. BLopes is a great athlete, but that's a pretty tall tree for #55 to go barking up.

No, literally, he's like six inches taller than lopes.

The twitter portion of this little post made my night. Thanks Chaz.
