You Gotta Go See “The Armstrong Lie,” the Lance-Armstrong-Is-A-Liar Film – It’s Riveting

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013

I’ll tell you, it was mesmerizing seeing this jackass up on the big screen, spinning away on clear (and yet not so clear) old-school analog* film.

And he’s still lying about his more recent issues, having to do with the statue of militations. So his big Oprah confession was a lie as well? News to me.

Anyway, this one will stay with you.

Current sked below.

Running the Sidewalk Gauntlet in the Upper Haight at Oh Dark Thirty – The Effectiveness of the Sit-Lie Law

Friday, December 14th, 2012

This is Haight near Masonic roundabout 12:30 AM this AM.

Street kids will sit around on the sidewalk until the SFPD comes by, and then everybody will all stand up all at once.

And then the cops will leave and then everybody will sit down again.

This is the new sit-lie law in action:

The Hanging Tennis Shoes of Haight Ashbury

Friday, December 18th, 2009

Lots of shoes hanging on overhead wires are visible in Haight Ashbury these days.

Could it be the work of the sit/lie bullies, you know, the ones behind the purported “unpleasant transformation” in the area over the past year?

Bay to Breakers 2008 – The Truth About Hayes Street Hill

Saturday, May 17th, 2008

Here’s what they want you to believe: the route of the Bay to Breakers footrace is all downhill after topping the Hayes Street Hill. From the website:

ING Bay to Breakers is a 12K (7.46 miles) course. From sea level at the Embarcadero the course rises steeply along Hayes Street Hill. Around the 2.5-mile mark runners climb an 11.15% grade between Fillmore and Steiner, bringing them to the highest point in the race, approximately 215 feet above sea level. The remainder of the course gradually flows downhill alongside the Panhandle and through Golden Gate Park.

But that’s simply not true. Take a look at this elevation profile. See? After dipping down a bit the course continues to rise and reaches its highest point in Golden Gate Park. So there’s a reason why it feels you’re going uphill after conquering the Hayes Street Hill – you are going uphill.

Thousands of runners are in Golden Gate Park today preparing for tomorrow’s race. Going to the west uphill in the Panhandle:

Why does the mainstream media repeat a falsehood year after year? Laziness, mostly.

But check for yourself, if you want. Mike did last year and came to this conclusion:

According to the Garmin GPS I was using, the highest point is indeed in GG Park, not the top of Hayes Street Hill.

So plan your racing strategy accordingly.

Have fun tomorrow!
