    • Daniela,

      The clouds and the fried chicken were wrong! I’m shocked, shocked I say. What can we relay on without the prophetic powers of condensed water vapor and bird meat fried in oil? 😉

      • I think we can still count on toast and cheetos to make good predictions.

        • A friend nursed the Patriots through the entire 1986 season, including the playoffs, by holding an unopened bag of Cheetos to his head at every critical point in every game. Then, during the Super Bowl, he broke down and ate the Cheetos. Result: the worst drubbing in Super Bowl history (to that point, no longer true thanks to later efforts by Buffalo (wings) and Denver (omelets).) We were toast! We were scrod! What’s worse, one of the star players for the Bears was the legendary Refrigerator Perry.

          Never underestimate the predictive powers of crispy food products!

    • What the hell is “flesh” colored? The photo quality isn’t that great, but in the pic of the six cyclists, I’m counting six different colors of flesh, none of which is indistinguishable from the uniform’s colors.

    • The picture the link shows is has more detail and is less provocative than other photos have been. With less detail, at first glance, it does look like they are naked about the waist.

      There is a tradition of using chamois leather for the seat of bicycle pants.

      Making the whole waist portion out of it would seem to be simply a stylistic issue.

      • Yeah, the first time I saw a picture of the uniform I did think it was made to make them look naked on purpose. I guess it depends on how the light hits and where the cycling pad makes a shadow.
