I killed a squirrel

scottyscotty Member, TRS/Baucco Team Member
Ran over it yesterday on my bike. He stopped right in the middle of the road, stared me down, then we did the you-go-right-I'll-right-I'll-go-left-you-go-left thing until I ran him over.

Good luck or bad luck for Boulder 70.3 in a week?

    You're gonna kill that race like it was a cute innocent road rodent who never did anything to hurt anybody.

    I've always wondered what would happen if one of those little fuckers jumped the wrong way (guess my vote btw). A friend insisted it would probably cause a crash. Sounds like it didn't?

    Any chance we can get the Lonely Island to do a remix of "I'm on a Boat" to "I Killed a Squirrel"? It's got Grammy written all over it.

    Barely felt it. One more vote for latex tubes.

    I had a rabbit do the same thing a couple of weeks back. It was about 1' from the side of the road. As I get close it decides to run into the middle of the road then back to the side. Ran into my disc, bounced off and hopped away.

    Nothing better than feeling that crunch under 95 psi of darwinism.

    Bird flew between my left leg and frame. Wouldve been worse on drive side. He died anyway.

    That 90s song "I kissed a girl" would fit.

    Katy Perry released that in 2008....

    This cyclist wasn't as lucky. The squirrel though, same [bad] luck.

    How about to the tune of "I Just Had Sex"?

    I crushed a squirrel / And it felt so goood / To be honest barely felt that fucker beneath my latex tuuubes!

    There was another. I think the line would fit better into the chorus of the older one.

    Jill Sobule? 1995 it seems. Guess that's why you don't remember it.

    I killed a chipmunk a few weeks ago. He ran right under my wheel like he had a death wish. No crash for me, outcome was worse for him.

    Oof I've been there before. Cried for the poor thing.

    Maybe good dry run to practice avoiding all the prairie dogs on the Boulder course? At least one got smushed during the full. :'(

    I had one roll up from my front wheel and end up in my lap for a split second.
    I've also run over a turtle mountain biking (they look JUST like a rock! But rocks don't crunch)
    Having just moved to CO, I have also seen the absurd number of prairie dogs, and I'm pretty sure I'll be responsible for at least one death at some point.

    We should all be glad we don't live in the land of wombats! Those things will fuck up a car's undercarriage.

    They have been known to rip the bottom out of trucks. Little blocks of concrete!

    REVENGE OF THE SQUIRREL! Did a 15 min ride to check the bike for tomorrow and dropped my chain 3x. Hoping new pulleys will solve the issue.
