STEAKBELLIE RIDES ACROSS USA

This is an article found and scanned the super-sweet SRF. (I always liked his version of the Casper Weinberger Illustration assignment best) I'm really really happy he did this....I'm very easy to please, but this was something that I'm deeply grateful he kept.

If you click on the picture, it should open up a pdf that you can read.

There's more to come on this, but at least you can get view from a 21 year old kid for the time being.

Geeze, what - you my twin or something? I wrestled in high school. I'm an Eagle Scout. Is this what the whole "identity theft" is about?

Man, you really DID bicycle across the nation. That's way cool! Especially for charity.

My hat's off to you, Mr. Bellie.

Birdy said...

Hey Competitor Johnny Competitor - how's it feel to go from bicycling across the goddamn country to shoving down 20 hotdogs in 5 minutes? :)

gerberdaisy said...

Chris-
NESA Class 0f 86!!!
Be Prepared, my brother!

steakbellie said...

Birdy-
Makes me feel like a fatass!!!!

steakbellie said...

GB-
You tell him, HONEY!!!

Birdy said...

Ah, 14.
Well, that changes everything.

Chris said...

In an odd twist of timing, I got my Eagle in 85, just a few months AFTER I got through Army Basic Training. Figger that out.

A buddy of mine thinks you should use whole wheat buns. "Any time my wife makes me eat anything with whole wheat in it, I'm still hungry," he said. "There must not be anything in it."

My wife simply doesn't understand eating contests, rodeo clowns, or straight pipes. She does giggle every time she sees a midget, though. I don't know why.

jenne said...

NO! NO WHOLE WHEAT. THEY HAVE SEEDS AND THINGS THAT CAN GET STUCK IN YOUR THROAT!

gerberdaisy said...

jenne- FUNNY !!!

steakbellie said...

I would actually prefer to have whole wheat rolls, but the contest will have white rolls, so that is what I train with! I try to create the 'game conditions' so that there are less surprises at the actual event

I think most women dont understand those things. Kind of like the 3 Stooges...women just dont think it's funny....

SRF said...

Birdy once DROVE across country. I have the postcards...
Jenne' KNOWS all about "game conditions" - she's wicked smaht!
If you DO (-insert religious deity here- forbid) get something stuck, have GerberDaisee take pics!! It helps the story.

Birdy said...

*Ahem* - I drove across the country AND back AND went up into Canada before coming back. Do you save everything?

Katrocket said...

birdy: you came to canada and didn't even bother to take me out for a beer? jeez. just so you know, i would have made you bacon.

steakbellie: you know i think yer da bomb man but THIS is truly amazing and very inspiring. thanks for sharing the article...and good on ya. you should spend less time being neurotic about all the shit you worry about and more time resting on your laurels. and eating hot dogs.

Anonymous said...

Wow, you have a name! I look forward to googling your sorry ass and creating a dosier with which I will blackmail you.

Nice job, Numbnutz.

steakbellie said...

if you have THAT much time you should be working on your blog instead!!!!!

steakbellie said...

Kat,
Birdy's a real shit that way. He tried to come to Philly last summer without telling me he was around...but I caught his bitch-ass and made him buy me beer and a steak dinner on his company's dime.

My guess is that as soon as he was over the border, he bought several cartons of Palmall's and chainsmoked them...throwing the butts upon your pristine Canadian Highways with a sneer.

Kilometer after Kilometer he squinted over the wheel... searching for an accident to participate in.....

Birdy said...

I drive just fine, fucker!

groovygrrrl said...

That is so cool that you did that ride. I'm really impressed!

Wendy said...

That is incredible. Great article.

Your name is Eric? I would have pegged you for a Keith or a Kevin.

Chris said...

That's funny - I thought he was a "Bart" or maybe "Zeke."

steakbellie said...

Keith or Kevin?
thats offensive....

Now Bart! I wouldnt have to use the 'Steakbellie' moniker. That would rock.
