I don’t ride bicycles. Rarely have as an adult. Don’t get me wrong. I loved zipping around my town as a youth. In the 1950s, cars weren’t the challenge they’ve become to cyclists. I rode to the beach, out to the airport to watch the planes land, to car dealerships when the new cars came […]

A win is a win with the proper spin

A WIN OF SORTS … In last week’s Fearless Forecast I noted that our hometown Aggies, coming off a decent win over University of San Diego, might be catching Hawaii at just the right moment, given that the Warriors had been badly thumped by a weak UNLV team the week before. I boldly went where […]
