Bob Abooey Fun Fact: My Grandmother had a cousin (or something like that) who was actually a national recording star back in the 30's and 40's. He was a World Renowned big Band Leader according to the review of his greatest hits disc on Amazon. I guess he was a real stud muffin kinda guy, along with being a great singer and whatnot.
It's pretty wacky, there's a bunch of web pages about him and it turns out there's a fan club for him and whatnot. I should email them, being a relative of his I'll bet they would love to interview me. Anyways, it's a shame I didn't catch any of those genes cause I can't sing for shit
My knee's been bothering me, off and on, so I thought I would give the faux-bike a break for a little while and use the elliptical machine instead. Well, sweet mother of God, that's a right beast. I'll have to find the right setting for it as the one I used this morning was way too easy and as such I was going way too fast and felt like I was going to have a stroke after about 10 minutes.
Tomorrow I'll try it with about 3 or 4 times the resistance and see how that works. That said, I'm not so sure I like it cause you have to stand up the whole time, the bike is nice cause you're sitting down. Sure sure, that's the girlie-man way to do cardio work, but screw it, I'm not to proud to take the easy way out sometimes.
Bob Abooey Fun Fact - My grandfather (on my dad's side) went to this little podunk high school in the middle of Hicksville Ohia. Despite that fact that they barely had enough guys to field a team his high school baseball team won the state championship, destroying every big school that got in their path, with him as the pitcher. And I mean the pitcher as he pitched every game for them.
This got them lots of recognition in the papers and he had a scout from the Cincinnati Rids following them around. He actually got signed with the Reds but blew his arm out and never got to pitch in any games. Sadly none of his baseball genes trickled down to me as I could never play baseball for shit.
It looks like we've got a bank holiday on Monday so it's a Three Day Weekend for every one in USistan!!! Woooo!! I plan on spending some time getting ready for my fantasy football draft, and generally screwing off. So anyways, I'm off to SubWaytm for a giant chicken -n- veggies sub to cram down my soy-hole. Oh yeah, speaking of soy, I got some of the Bocca faux soy sausage links and I'll be darned if they aren't pretty good. They kinda taste like sausage! Imagine that.
