New Wheels and Stuff

I got a new bike! :) I've been actively looking for one for at least a year. I had planned to order one from, but last week I decided I didn't want to wait around anymore. So I went to Sports Authority and bought this Diamondback Vital 2. It's everything I could want in a bike, right down to the Tiger blue and cute bird decal, and it was ready to ride out of the store!

On Saturday, I took the bike for its maiden voyage on the Shelby Farms Greenline. My mom and I rode the whole thing - 14 miles total - and it was a breeze. I look forward to many more rides there this spring and summer!

In other news, after the sad Tiger tournament loss on Friday, Kathy (my college roommate) and I went to Wilson Air to meet the team plane when it landed. I've wanted to do this for years, and it was a great experience! Several hundred fans were there. I made a sign, and we got most of the players to sign it! Then I wished I had made a smaller sign more suitable for long-term display. :)

But the most exciting moment was getting a picture with Charles Carmouche. He's been my favorite player all season! :D

I'm proud of this team and all that they've accomplished. Since only one player is leaving for sure, I'm confident that they'll blow everyone away next season! Can't wait. :)
