Sorry, today’s title is a bad pun on the word “Sidelined” since my eye did just that to me last night. While my puffy/swollen right eyelid did not get significantly worse yesterday, it also did not get any better. Because of this I decided to pull the plug on my much-needed afternoon bike ride, fearing that a couple of hours of sweating and wiping with sweaty gloves would be worse for the eyelid than not doing this. My body’s maladies frustrate me constantly.

I was hoping that I’d be able to get home at a decent time and start to take care of the many outstanding issues that are present inside the house, but alas, traffic sucked again and I was forced to wait some of it out in the Perimeter Mall area.

This morning my eye is actually worse, redder and more swollen than it was yesterday. If it’s still bad either tonight or tomorrow morning I will make my third visit to my doctor in the past six weeks. Yeesh!

    Well, I wasted time in 2 classes that were not what I was expecting, bailing on both well before the end. My hearing issues don’t help. Something about the echo in the hall… Everyone seems to do OK, but since I don’t have good stereo hearing, it’s an issue.

    I relieved the casino of several hundred dollars yesterday afternoon and returned some in the evening. Walked over to the T-mobile center for the concert. Don’t know what it is with Cisco and hats, but this years cowboy hat with blinking lights didn’t fit, so I went hatless. The young lady who opened, Elle King (?) had kind of a grating voice, so I bailed.

    Hope your eye gets better. It sucks on several levels.


  2. Thanks. It’s annoying and I hate having to bail on my training rides.

    In addition to a shortened stage today there is some incredible drama toward the end…

    My eyes are driving me crazy. I think it’s allergies and mowing trails for a couple hours yesterday didn’t help. I’ve been using Visine Clear Eyes to help reduce the dry, itchiness and burning. Hope yours feel better.

    Holy $hit! That’s always my fear when the crowd gets nuts.

  5. Yeah. Unfortunately the crowd, which I am sure were packed in like sardines due to the course being 6k shorter than originally advertised, just got too much into the mix and effed things up. I am surprised that Porte didn’t get injured more.

    Heard that Froome’s frame cracked, which is why he abandoned it and started running.

    That’ll happen when a motorcycle runs over it. Commissaries made the right decision and even the riders that lost in that deal said he same.
