I haven't contributed here...I think ever. So hear me out on this brilliant idea I have.
First, I'm enjoying a Yamazaki 12. I was introduced to the world of craft bourbons a year or so ago and it's pretty addicting. Hell of a bottle.
Second, I need/want a road bike. Sold mine a couple years back to off-set the costs of all Triathlon stuff. Very prudent decision but one that has me now plotting. Here is the plan and I don't think I'll sway from it so all I want is each of you to pat me on the back and encourage me to go forth.
Step 1: win my fantasy football league. I'm at like a 90% chance of winning so I jinxed it with this post.
Step 2: Take the $700 I win and DO NOT place a downpayment on the bike I am eyeing.
Step 3: Head to a Blackjack table at Harrahs on Monday and attempt to parlay it into enough money to pay for the bike in cash.
Step 4: Head to the LBS. I am offered by my local a 30-50% discount right now depending on the year end model Scott roadie I desire.
Step 5: Come home with a new bike and tell my wife I won it. (see, this wouldn't be a stretch)
Step 6: She calls me a liar and ask her to find where the cash was withdrawn or charged.
Step 7: Enjoy my new bike.
Freaking foolproof right? I thought about starting a new thread but I think this is the right spot for it. I'll post updates from the blackjack table Monday if you all desire.
