Our beloved Chicago Fire suffers another loss as mighty keeper Zach Thornton signs a
six-month deal with Benfica. I linked to SoccerAge because I liked how they called the Fire “Reigning MLS Champions.” We wish. Hopefully, “six months” means “Until Bossio returns, shortly after the MLS season starts.”
Matthew was apparently intrigued enough by the Adiva to look up the Benelli Moto website. I can’t beat “sufficiente” on the memory game, but I now know they have an importer in Georgia, so that’s good news. They don’t look nearly as cool as the BMW C1, but then again we can’t buy a BMW C1 here, so that’s moot.
In another example of how the British motorcycle industry kicks the American motorcycle industryâ€™s ass, Honda UK is offering â€œlicense classesâ€? for 5-11-year olds at local bike shows. The licenses arenâ€™t valid, of course, but the program delivers a message about safety and responsibility to british kids (along with Hondaâ€™s sales message) at an age when their American counterparts are riding dirt bikes without helmets on their uncle’s farm.
