Win an ET2 from Target!

I was disappointed to see only 3 scooters in the Rome Collector’s edition of Gourmet magazine (an ad, a cartoon, and an out of focus photo with the scooter way in the background). On closer inspection of the Target ad, I saw they’re giving away an ET2 in each store, plus one online. The drawing will be held “on or about May 19, 2003”. One drawback is that you’re going to receive Target emails. Once the contest is over and they’ve sent you an email confirming that you’ve won, remove yourself from the mailing list.

Zach Attacks Lisbon

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.”

Honda UK’s “My First License”

In another example of how the British motorcycle industry kicks the American motorcycle industry’s ass, Honda UK is offering “license classesâ€? for 5-11-year olds at local bike shows. The licenses aren’t valid, of course, but the program delivers a message about safety and responsibility to british kids (along with Honda’s sales message) at an age when their American counterparts are riding dirt bikes without helmets on their uncle’s farm.
