    The Save Argyle mug is sad joke.

    Cancer, starving children, famines, sad puppies, illness, nnn-thanks, I'll pass. But a pro cycling team which may be going under? Take my money! And so they did as I got a little carried away and donated. Morning coffee is a ritual at my place and so I figured I'd at least get a nice mug out of it. I waited for what seemed like months, hearing somewhere along the way that Taylor Phinney would bless it with his sense of artistic style. Today, it arrived. It's tough to explain just how disappointing and underwhelming this thing is. It's almost like something you'd get from a bank for opening an account, like an unwanted toaster, or an ugly gimmick pen, or those first class United toiletry kits. No, actually no, those are [expeltive] money!

    It's a cheap, uninspired, deformed - and even slightly chipped! - generic white mug stamped CHINA in giant letters on the bottom.

    I don't know what I was expecting but this wasn't it. In retro, I shoulda helped someone pay medical bills instead.

    Pour a liberal amount of scotch in it, drink the scotch down in one gulp and throw the empty mug in the fireplace.

    That'll fix everything.

    We just don’t realize the most significant moments of our lives when they’re happening
    Back then I thought “well there'll be other days”
    I didn’t realize that was the only day

    There's sometimes a buggy.
    How many drivers does a buggy have?
    One.
    So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
    and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.
