Peaking from the Peak

Saturday was ride day this past weekend and Colin's general plan was "somewhere out East with grub at Porangahau".  This appeared to be enough to entice Brett and John along too - although I think that John wanted to put some miles on his 120km old 1290...Anyway the plan was to meet in Pahiatua before heading out towards Pongaroa.  I got underway a bit early at just after 8 so got in my only [Author: Andrew Thomson]

But if self-care has sometimes been overused as a buzzword, its fundamental premise is still quite sound. In any...

Imagine if Brett Favre had signed with Vikings -- but couldn't play Packers

Imagine it's the summer of 2009 (for many, many reasons but just for football reasons in this case). The Vikings are closing in on signing Brett Favre, their on-again, off-again pursuit of the legendary QB having paid off. They arrive at the moment of truth, but there's one wrinkle: Favre can play for the Vikings … but he can't play for them in their two games against the Packers in 2009. Is that a deal-breaker? Pardon me for engaging in such a strange hypothetical, but I've been thinking a lot ...
