For now he is. I keep thinking Dan and Pubes secretly laugh behind the scenes at their little staged spats. It used to be Pubes would jump into threads and make smart but snarky comments. However for the past few months he's been posting semi-regularly with his own threads deliberately firing away at some topic or group of people. Even the titles became more over the top and typically were in the form of a question. The same cast of characters usually bite and jump in the mess every time, including Dan. Just seems scripted the past few months. And I think his threads are by far the biggest draw of the site which Dan obviously knows since he started a post to make sure it didn't go unnoticed.
Maybe Pubes will start a triathlon podcast now followed by a non triathlon podcast.
Case in point, everyone's (or just my) favorite triathlete.
If you don't have 2 minutes to watch the entire thing, Currie dropped his chain at Challenge Wanaka. Gomez pulled up to give him a push to try to ride it back on. When it didn't work, Gomez held up down the road for him to pull over, get his chain back on and catch up. Gomez went on to beat Currie by about 17 seconds.
@Tad_Machrowicz Make sure you have a mustache and wink when you say it's a sex swing. That either ends the conversation (and your bike will fly for free) or it starts a very awkward exchange. Either way we all win when you post about your experience.
I’ve thought about a dog as well - love Vizla’s and Rhodesians - but haven’t found anyone to take my wife and kids in exchange yet. I’ll keep looking - definitely have had some interesting offers to my Craigslist ad so far.
@ellsworth53t We, normal AG fans, can have all the discussions we want. Heck - lets go ahead and just start name calling.
My concern here is TRS is no longer a parody. It's attempted, at times, to be journalistic in nature. At the very least it is attempting to promote the sport. Accordingly I would expect the heads (Ben, Webstey, Mark) to be a little more careful in this area. Perhaps starting a thread calling the current world champion a doper is not the best idea. If I did it - no big deal - I'm just an internet idiot. When Webstey does it, it's different. It's the optics of it.
I think TRS has come a long way and has become a voice in the relatively small triathlon community. Just don't want to see that progress thrown away by failing to excercise just a little discretion around this sensitive topic.
