I don’t want to go off on a rant here but…
When I’m King of the World, all rookies and novices will be banned from the use of clipless pedals. If i have seen it once, i’ve seen it a thousand times: Here is little Johnny in the gate with his father/mother behind him keeping him balanced. Then you look down at his feet and…CLIPS!!! Johnny can’t even balance yet but he is clipped in. By the time you are an expert, you should have all of the skills to race so using clips is an option. By the way, Johnny’s parents will be the first ones running on to the track when their son crashes and cannot get himself unclipped, but that is for a different rant…
When I’m King of the World, Pro atheletes will be held to the same standard as the rest of society. “Mr. Vick, you are under arrest, you have the right to remain silent, you have the right to an attorney, WE WILL APPOINT ONE FOR YOU. Now lets see how the system works when they can’t hire justice for $5000 an hour. I’m thinking the stuttering attorney from My Cousin Vinnie. Think Pacman Jones or Barry Bonds without a PR firm.
BTW – if there was a performance enhancing drug for my job, I would be juicing too.(of course there isn’t a hall of fame for my job and kids don’t pay to see me work but…)
When I’m King of the World, people who insist that the good old days are really better will be forced to get a mullet. Then they will be made to wear either Zubas or Jamms and a hawaiian shirt. Then they will be given a steel bmx bike with a 19 1/2 inch top tube to race. Of course they can’t balance in the gate as they would have to have one foot on the ground. Once they finish last, they will be forced to watch BMX Bandits, and Xanadu while listening to A Flock of Seagulls and WHAM!
When I’m King of the World, aging rock stars won’t be eligible to receive any medal.(Bono is up for the one they award in Philly at the Independance Hall on the 4th of July – he’s not even American!!! JEEZ) For that matter, no movie star or musical entertainer will be able to publicly speak, unless it is about their new album or movie. There is nothing that will kill a good buzz at a concert than the singer stopping between songs to lecture the audience about the moral ramifications of …… SHUT UP AND PLAY YOUR GREATEST HITS
of course that’s just my opinion, I could be wrongMay 25, 2007 at 9:35 pm #45615kevhMember
AMEN!!!!!!May 25, 2007 at 11:27 pm #45621adamguildMember
You need to change your last name to Bush and start investing as much as you can in oil.Maybe then and only then can you trick the vast majority of the United States and weak minded leaders from other nations that if they bow down to you their interests will be protected by weapons of mass destruction. On that day my friend things will start going your way.May 25, 2007 at 11:45 pm #45622RaidenHaydenMember

Why not just ban clips all together?
In Nascar wouldnt you get an advantage if you ran Nitrous down the finish line? Or if you could run a jet engine? But Nascar decided thats not Stock Car racing and banned them..
Only BMXL has banned clips and well crap BMXL isnt going yet lol.May 26, 2007 at 4:02 am #45660CrazyCraigMember
I am 100% with you Mac.
My wife picks up a copy of People the other day (why, I do not know… 🙄 ) but I open it up because I think I have a pretty good idea what I am going to read about Paris Hilton, and I was right.
She got stopped for DUI and driving while suspended 3 or 4 times, violated probation (her previous sentence for this), and her mummy is mad that they spent a whole boat load of money and they still couldn’t keep her from receiving a 45 day jail sentence, and then have the nerve to blame it on the judge for “imposing his morals” on her (devout Catholic judge).
First, WTF with the cops who gave her warnings the first three times?? More importantly, the Hilton’s get the “bad parents of the year” award for not telling her “sorry honey, you screwed up, now you gotta take the rap”.
Anyone of us would have been in a whole heckuva lot more trouble if we did the same thing.
Add that to your King of The World list. If I were King, I get to slap every rich b*tch that thinks they are better than everyone else.
Okay, off my rant. Have a good night.May 26, 2007 at 4:13 am #45663
There seems to be an underlying theme that permeates through all those involved in BMX who truly understand it.
You are all truly different than most people.
I wish I could more completely explain what that sentence above means.May 26, 2007 at 3:39 pm #45678
