Racing For Pancakes...

collarChisago Half Preview...

Gustav (pronounced "Goose-Toff," not "Gus-Toff") Pannkaken invented the gastronomically lipgasmic Swedish Pancake in the village of Ihoppenkakken a long time ago.

How long ago, you ask?

We're not sure but it was during an era when men wore automotive air filters around their necks. Don't believe us? Check out the painting of the sartorially resplendent Goose-Toff (phonetic spelling). What else could that thing be?

As everyone here in Minnesota, especially Mora and Lindstrom, knows, Swedish Pancakes are the nummiest pancakes in the entire world.....

Pure Drivel...

WARNING! Much of what you are about to read is made up. The rest is pure drivel.cats

We Want Anne To Win...

anneAnne Garlock is a totally nice person. She's and avid triathlete and her family may evenbarn have a barn with "GARLOCK" shingled into the roof. But maybe not. There may me more than one Garlock family in the world. The photo of the insanely pretty girl may or may not be the right Anne Garlock. We found this pic on Google. As we said, it's possible that there are multiple Garlocks, and maybe even multiple Anne Garlocks.

Yesterday Anne--we're on a first name basis now--sent us an e-mail saying that she enjoys Minnesota Tri News. Her generous words, there were at least 20 of them, made our day. Heck, it made our week. We now want Anne to be our BFF.

And we hope that Anne wins the Chaska Triathlon on Saturday....
