That’s right, Global Warming…”let’s dance”.
On paper, it’s hardly a fair fight. Global Warming is a powerful, mystic opponent, that can destroy fresh water, pollute the air we breath, and rape the land of natural resources. Conversely, I’ve never been in a fight. There was that one time I made David Dool’s nose bleed in elementary school, but it was because I threw a softball when he wasn’t looking and….BANG! Right in the kisser. But anyway.
The Vegas line would read: 100,000,000,000 t0 1 in favor of Global Warming. Heck, I wouldn’t even pick me, and I know me! I’ve got lots of piss and vinegar. I like to win. I’ve got heart! But not even all of that could give me a fighting chance.
The only way to make this “fair” is for Global Warming to “handicap” the fight. Kind of like when I was a kid, and my dad would play without a goalie in rod-hockey. In this case, I will beat Global Warming if I bike to work everyday, for a year. Here are the ground rules:
1. I bike to work (Monday to Friday) everyday of 1 year. Starting today.
2. I am allowed to be picked up from work (on occasion) because the nature of my work sometimes means I need to quickly move around during the day. However, let the record show, it is my goal to bike home from work as well.
3. I am to blog about my ride everyday, and hope that somebody will read it, and pick their own fight with Global Warming.
It’s officially on. The running scorecard reads:
Global Warming: 0
