The Scooter Scoop reports Vespa and Adidas have teamed up for some co-branded apparel and shoes. The last time Adidas teamed up (unofficially) with Vespa, we got the greatest commercial of all time: The gear looks pretty sweet, though not too “outside the box.” What we need now is for Piaggio and Adidas to sponsor […]
Chocolate Skateboards’ Anthony Papalardo model. Usually deck designs come and go too fast (I can’t even find online images of the several scooter-related decks that come to mind), but I think I’ve seen this one around for a while, pick one up before it’s gone! (Thanks M5 and Myk)
A sad farewell to hockey player/coach, pool hustler, old-west outlaw, parking-meter scofflaw, philanthropist, motorsports fan and team owner, and scooterist, Paul Newman. On top of all that, he made the best damn pretzel sticks known to mankind, and I’m not being glib. He was a great actor, and a great human being. With all his […]
Congratulations on a fantastic show, Beijing. Now that we’ve seen what potential your nation holds, let’s see what you can do about your scooters. I know you can make good scooters, I know you’re cutting corners so the importers make more money, but it’s time to go legit.
Italian Flare? Is that one of those smoke bombs that AS Roma supporters light after Francesco Totti scores?
Thats Norm and me and I’m embarassed to admit I can’t remember the other dude’s name right now, “playing soccer” at Lane Tech High School after Slaughterhouse 4 (1998), as originally seen on our original website in 2000. Rally Soccer was sort of a tradition back then, with the various options and rules outlined here.
A recent study found that Norwich is the UK’s scooter capital, with one scooter per ten residents. Way to sell your Lambretta last week, Cy. The study was conducted by Bennetts, who listed the top ten as follows:
Look, friends, we can stand here and argue about Man Utd. all day, but there is one team, ONE TEAM, that unites us all under the banner of mediocre soccer… a team as drunk as we are… a team that doesn’t mind if you don’t drive six hours through god-forsaken Indiana to see them play […]
As usual, 2SB spent most of the WKRP rally with our family, aside from some rapid consumption of rather large bottles of Red Stripe in the basement of the Comet, and a quick stop at the C&D (cheese grits!) to save 2SBmom the trouble of making breakfast on Sunday. Luckily Jordan took some photos of […]
This weekend, of course, is the WKRP Rally in Cincinnati, and 2SB will be there, as always, probably with stomach flu. Here are two non-sanctioned events that 2SB fans might want to check out (we’ll be at both): Saturday evening, early enough that you can still make it to the Comet in plenty of time […]
Modern Vespa (just after I make fun of them) have had the great idea to hold a Silent Auction to benefit Scoot! Magazine publisher Josh Rogers. I’ve thrown in the very last 2strokebuzz/Merciless Tigers jersey (they’re no longer available after this one!), and other items include books, clothing, scooter parts, and my favorite; “Vintage Street […]
2SB reader Jon Madorsky of Chicago was in Florida for the 2008 Daytona 500 last Saturday and sent these cool photos of police patrolling the track perimeter on white Honda Elites. Thanks, Jon!
Right now in Chicago, we’re having a heat wave (it’s 21Â°F and sunny with an inch or two of snow on the ground) but it’s been mostly in the single digits lately. That hasn’t stopped SoloSC and Team MD (I think they’re serious) from planning an 80-mile round-trip ride to a ski jump competition this […]
Speaking of the PI, our friend Jordan Cinco has just returned from the Philippines where he helped organize the third annual Vespa Attack rally. Congratulations to 2sb jersey winner Clifford Certeza (above), president of the Euroscoot SC, who is now also the president and sole member of the the Merciless Tigers’ Pacific Rim supporters club. […]
Wear what these losers are wearing! JERSEYS ARE NOW SOLD OUT, thanks for your support! Haven’t heard much from the team lately, though Scooter Dave caught Jim M. wearing his out on the town one night. Last I heard, they’d finished 4th in their indoor league and started a new season, in the spring they […]
