I Have A Mortal Enemy

Perusing the blogosphere on Moday night I came across the hate filled vitriolic words of one Teddy de Burca Jr of the de Burca clan.  According to Mr. de Burca Jr, yours truly is:

“under the delusion that he can get fit enough to run the SF marathon. He will be chronicling his slow realisation (sic) that tacos, absinthe and brews won’t help his race for fitness over at this blog. Personally I don’t think he can even keep his blog going for that long.”

You can read the full text of his bombast here.  Well, Mr. de Burca, it looks like the race is on. While you and your comrades waste away the summer at bia hoi’s across Hanoi and riding around on your Belorussian beasts, I will slowly be morphing into an elite athlete.

Mr de Burca Jr. Put this in your pipe and smoke it:

Training Run #10 – 4.29 mi. – 9.23 min/mi

Training Run #11 – 4.24 mi – 9.30 min/mi

Training Run #12- 7.63 mi – 9.18 min/mi

    LIKE WHATEVER DUDE! The proof is in the proverbial pudding. I have contacts in San Fran btw and will be checking up on your so called ‘training regime’…

    And don’t think you can wind me up with that “(sic)” up above.

    Mr Teddy de Burca Jr. The proof IS in the proverbial pudding and I have no doubt you will be eating humble pie come August. I’m not to0 worried about your *contacts* in San Francisco either. If by *contacts* you mean your former colleagues at Extreme Pizza, be sure to tell them to put down the bong long enough to check up on my ‘training regime (sic)’. And if you don’t like my ‘(sic)’ please check your spelling and/or verbiage.

    Certainly not my fault you and your wayward New World forefathers lost your dictionaries “out west” after chasing away the ‘injuns’.

    Working on my first post for Stuff Teddy de Burca likes now —

    Top five Californians — Fletch, Howard Hughes, Kareem Abdul Jabaar, The Governator, the Ragin’ Rooster pizza from eX-treme pizza on Filmore and Hope Sandoval.

    Mr. Mangler. It looks like Teddy may have won the battle but he hasn’t worn the war. Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Short answer: no. But I have to give it up to Mr. de Burca Jr, though. I didn’t even know who Hope Sandoval was until I consulted mother. Who knew mother was such a big Mazzy Star fan?
