after a self-imposed 20 year absence from cycling, the sport i love, i am back and dedicated to holding my own in the superfast 40+ catagory. this blog will tell the journey, the highs and the lows, the team [team becher+] and it's cast of characters, our sponsors, supporters, and other local riders that make it happen...

sad day in comedy

the off broadway spanish comedy "operacion puerto" has decided to end its illustrious run and close it's doors, some may say prematurely. the spanish comedy, which had french backing will be sorely missed. the somewhat black comedy gave us many magical fictional moments to talk about for years to come. my french friends raved about how great it was, how honest, which is no surprise to this critic, especially being a comedy so close to their heart [insert comment about their anonymous financial support]. my italian friends that attended the comedy with me, spent most of their time on the floor laughing, needless to say they loved this comedy and we had many a good laugh after wards repeating scenes over a late night espresso[s]. unfortunately my german colleague seemed a bit lost, as most of the comedy seemed to miss it's mark on them. i tried to explain the sublime subtle twists of the story and how they culminated in pure comedic scenes that did not require serious analytical analysis. but in the end, i think that they just took the jokes too seriously. what was really funny for me was to watch the austrian critic keep looking at the german responses, which i think prevent him from truly enjoying the comedy thoroughly, as i caught him on many an occasion, wanting to join the italians on the floor busting a gut. i really think now that he wishes that he could see it again and really enjoy himself fully. my fellow american critics i don't think were fully able to absorb essence of the comedy, they seemed almost preoccupied with an on broadway comedy that is about to open in may.

thats it for now, this has been racer blue squirrel, the european comedy critic at large.
