    Capitalism + Altruism = Compassionate Capitalism.

    This is something we all need to promote.

    Yup, could not have happened to a nicer squid, er, I mean nicer guy. But is civilian life ready for you???

    O yeah they better be. Been seriously looking at an Air Force job in Phoenix. But I did think of something. When I start to get my disability from the Military it should be close to 3500 a month!!!! If that happen’s then look out for NIKOTA TIDEY on the National ABA/NBL racing circuit!!! I can get a good job for a Monday thru Thursday and every weekend be at a National with him.. Sounds like a blessing in disguise if I ever saw one.

    Alot of us, I hope, do get a certain amount of personal satisfaction out of helping grow the sport. I know Brett sure does, or this sight wouldn’t be here.

    But, yes, I am getting personal satisfaction out of it too. I lost almost 25 pounds, lowered my blood pressure and other stats, and finally fit back into size 38 pants (heading for 36) after hitting a high of size 42. I’m in my best shape in 10 years and I have the very personal satisfaction of winning my class at the CJ Regional while my 5 year old son cheered me on. There was no better satisfaction than that!!!

    Fun? Hellya I’m having fun! I’m doing things on a bike (again) that 6 months ago I did not believe I could do again. Camping out and playing foot-down (at midnight in the dark with glow sticks in our spokes) at South Park with the Tidey crew, that was big fun!

    Creativity? Well, not sure how I measure up there, don’t think I am doing anything particularly creative on a bike, except inspiring some little dudes to try harder.

    Capitalistic interests? Hey, my business (mortgages) depends on networking. I’m hanging out on a site with people I like, I’m gonna tell them what I do. People usually refer people to people they like and know. My other site: Kick-ass stuff for active folks like us. Why should I keep that a secret? But, until this post, I have never promoted either in a post other than my signatures.

    But, I’m not arguing with ya or trying to debate anything, just giving my 2 cents again.

    You know now I have to put those in his spokes every night now!!! We have been on 10 o’clock rides every night since we got home. He is still talking about my crash into Gulich!! That was what BMX is all about FUN I know of no other Dad that would have thier kids out at midnight at a NATIONAL riding his bike in darkness with just Glow Sticks tolight his path besides me. For the first time he wasn’t complaining about doing sprints up hills. He did it over 10 times and that hill was enormous!! You know what, he had fun… It was one of the funnest times I have had on a Bike since I was a kid!! I am just glad that he got to share it with a great bunch of MEN who ride Kids Bikes!!![/i]
