A Sound He Could Not Ignore...

litterED. - We had lunchies with triathlete/embroidery guy/amazingly good rookie nordic skier Bendon O'Flanagan last Monday. Gosh, he's a cool guy. And one of the most honorable dudes you'll ever meet. Last August we posted a story about Brendon's confrontation with a litterer. For those who may have missed that story, here it is:

Going Off Course - Dave Schutz is a really nice guy. He is also the recently appointed director of the Life Time Fitness Minneapolis Triathon and the founder/director of Trinona, which was named 2010 Triathletes Choice Race of the Year.

The oblivious woman didn't answer. Her groceries, almost $600's worth so far, were piling up on the conveyor belt.

"Excuse me, ma'am. Would you prefer paper or plastic?" Outwardly, The Bagger was in control. Internally, he was becoming frantic. Groceries had begun to spill onto the floor. The scene resembled an episode of "I Love Lucy."...
