If gas prices are getting you down . . .

. . . be thankful you don't fil your car with HP ink. David Pogues posted some cost per gallon stats and here's the math on the HP 02 Black Ink Cartridge, 16 ml $18 online = $4,294.58 per gallon.

Ouch! Gas is almost a thousand times cheaper.

Harvard of the Bronx

My dad is a Fordham grad. Apparently, it's the Harvard of the Bronx.

I was born after dad finished graduated and we moved away from the area, so my thoughts of Fordham are of the Seven Blocks of Granite, which I learned about when reading an incredible football history book I read in junior high. The pictures and stories inspired me. I began my career in organized football to demonstrate my zeal. The coach did not concur. Ballerinas were referenced, I returned to backyard ball.

Giro d'Italia

Just a week before the Giro d'Italia begins, the race organizers have invited the Astana team. They promise to bring the strongest team possible. I'm hoping for a Leipheimer or Contador win, though they didn't obviously prepare for the course.

Here's a video of the final kilometers of last year's Giro Stage 14. Even if you don't know Italian you will hear some words you understand, and the announcers' enthusiasm is energizing.
