old pictures

August 17, 2010

I was moving pictures around on my computer the other day, deleting some, laughing at some, moving some to my fancy new phone. And I came across these two classics.

Let’s caption them. Jus fer fun.

Picture one:

dug 24 hours of moab

Picture 2:

dug wall move gooseberry

Bonus if you can name the trail (and/or event).

    Remind me never to let you borrow my bike.

    24 hours of moab. ‘Cause, like, duh, you mouse over the photo and it says so in the photo’s name.

    1.lessee, if this were a fixie in a gym, i would turn around and ride the reverse wheelie from in front of the forks, facing rearwards about now…

    2. damn, these black socks climb like crazy! I think with knee socks I’d be up & over.

    Photo 1 from the inagural 24 hours of moab in 1995:
    “I really should’ve been on my softride with the patented beam suspension frame.”

    Photo 2 from the Goose right out near the point probably circa 2007 given the KM:
    “Those quick links that come on the $5.00 KMC chains really don’t have much substance.”

    OK, so other guy named mark who doesn’t capitalize his first name, I just want to say that I like your work. I mean, your comments are what I would say if I were witty and funny. It’s as if I outsourced commenting on dug’s blog and didn’t have to worry about it anymore, but the firm I outsourced it to actually does a better job than I could do. Perhaps you could also start linking to my blog in your comments, then I can just read what you said, and pretend it was me. Feel free to also send me submissions if you’d like to write my blog for me. I’m sure you’d do great. Thanks.

    Wait, that first photo is you at 24 hrs of moab?
    it’s not elden? I thought for sure it was elden just because it was a crash sequence. Which was going to lead me to say that the point of this post was not to get us to write funny captions. That was just a smokescreen. The real point was to demonstrate the wide gaping chasm between elden’s bike handling skills and dug’s.

    But I guess if both photos are of you, then I got nothin’.

    For pic #1, all of the following immediately came to mind:

    1) Uh-oh, Spaghettios (an oldie, but goodie)
    2) Oh yeah, that’s gonna leave a mark.
    3) Hmmm…did I put my dentist on speed-dial?
    4) I shaved my legs for THIS?

    I look at pic #2 and all that comes to mind is a crescendo of the Chariots of Fire theme. Or, maybe, “gravity, schmavity”.

  15. dug Says:

    all good.

    pic 1: inaugural 24 hours of moab (’95–nice one jon), i actually broke the crown on my bridgestone mb1 fork on this fall, but i didn’t notice, and it didn’t sheer completely off until my night lap. during which it did, in fact, sheer off.

    “i’m good, i got this.”

    pic 2: fall moab (gooseberry mesa edition, circa 2006).

    i can’t do better than jon’s caption. although, in this instance the chain did not snap, and i cleaned the move. just sayin.

    Caption for either photo :

    “TRY this at home. I dare ya!”

  17. Eric Says:

    1. It’s been a perfect routine so far folks. Now, if he can just stick the landing I think we’re looking at a gold medal here.

    2. Spiderman exploring the limits of his new Blackwidow Pro XC SS.

  18. tohellandback1st Says:

    Eric and randomhigh tie for my vote for #1. Nothing grabs me on #2.

    #2 before
