Still in shock...

I've written a few posts about Fatty. I'm too lazy to do a search through my archive (which isn't that extensive, which should tell you how lazy I'm feeling) to see just how many, but it's a lot. Most of them are about one or another of the give-aways that he runs for good causes, most of which I've donated to because they're, well, good causes. I don't expect to EVER win but then there's this...

A Note About the Grand Slam for Zambia: The Grand Slam for Zambia was a monstrous success — we wound up raising $153,936, enough to buy 1,125 bikes. That’s astounding.
And a huge congratulations to the winners, the top ten of which are listed here!
  • Paul B of Vancouver: Africa Trip
  • Jan H of Belgium: RadioShack Trek Madone
  • Karen L of Vancouver: Tour de France Trip
  • Michael D of California: SRAM Red Group
  • Christoph S of Germany: HED Ardennes SL Wheels
  • Tim O of Austria: Lance Armstrong’s podium-worn yellow jersey
  • Joel P of California: Bike and an afternoon with Gary Fisher
  • Jeanette D of North Carolina: Specialized BG S-Works Road Shoes with Boa Systems Closures
  • Jeremy S of Florida: Ben King-signed jersey
  • Johan M of Florida: 16Gb White iPhone

So, yeah, I get to spend part of the day tooling around San Francisco with GARY FISHER! And that was a prize I got to choose...When I finish geeking out enough to make the arrangements and take the ride I'll post something, at least some pics.
