A reminder that the Hell of the South Ride is on this Sunday. Start at 7:30am in Rundle Street. From there it’s 100km of a slogfest in the Adelaide Hills. Hope to see you there.
Ok, so you’ve got that Livestrong Jersey just sitting in the second drawer, its an embarrassment due to its, and your, association with Lance.
Regardless of the fact that the Livestrong Foundation has done some fantastic work in initially raising funds for cancer research, and later in the to support the mission to empower people affected by cancer. This Foundation has raised over $470 million and provided financial resources to more than 550 organizations that conduct cancer survivorship research.
So, what are you going to do?
Do you let it sit there unused and unloved in the back of your drawer, do you donate it to Vinnies, or do you snub your nose at the world and were it proud, not caring at the jibes from your mates.
If you plan on dumping it, then your just going to have to get yourself another style, something that you’d be proud to wear with your mates, in the coffee shop, hell, even walking down the centre of the mall during a boxing day sale. Well, the following jerseys are a statement waiting for you to slither into.
Go on, you know you want to.
