think I might have annoyed the new Columbian cycle team

Postby jonomc4 » Tue Feb 05, 2013 15:22 pm

So on Twitter cyclingnews.com sent out a tweet about the new Team Columbia preparing for season début - to which I replied "That's one for WADA to watch out for :-)"

One of them replied back pointing out I was not funny. ooops

As a member of one the largest minorities I find that offensive :lol:
The dissenter is every human being at those moments of his life when he resigns
momentarily from the herd and thinks for himself.

You can point out that you meant the cycling team of the District of Columbia - not Colombia as in the country of ;-)

They gave him his marching orders there.
