Colorado managed to hand me a nice little “F you pal” in the form of a couple of inches of snow in the mountains. I’m not ready for snow yet.

Screw him. Dick. I’m better than this. Where is my underwear? Breakfast at a CART? I am so pissed. Never again!” Internal monologue of you: “Yeeessss, this cart is awesome.”
And don’t worry kids, the weather in Aspen for this weekend’s race is supposed to be sunny.
