I went to SDSU and athletes had priority for classes there over anyone else.

Yeah. but I don't think that the sort of classes they "take" are in much demand. Basketweaving 101 and Advanced Bullyingoffreshmen usually have plenty of open seats.

I presume you mean Downs' Syndrome, not "like a Mongol", since most Mongolians don't ride motorcycles - but they do ride some scooters there.



My son has Downs' Syndrome (e.g. - Mongoloid) and I would like to point out that he is an excellent passenger rider who always is diligent strapping on his helmet, wearing his boots, and wearing his armor as needed. He rides extremely well in the twisties and leans properly, shifts his weight well, and never panics during moments of tension caused by my mistakes.



In short, don't besmirch the good name of Downs' syndrome people by comparing them to Kellen Winslow.

It was a current model red/black GSXR with a color matched red/black fade Micron bolt-on.



He may be forced to return the 4.4 million dollar signing bonus.



He tore his ACL, and punctured a lung (I think), amongst other injuries.



And finally, he is a huge dumb@ss... for way more reasons than I would ever want to bother listing here.

Good for you pointing out that even people that are considered by many in our society to be challenged are more intelligent in many ways than others who are held up for adulation. My brother in law has a nephew with downs syndrome that is one of the sweetest, most well behave children that I have ever seen. VWW

Uh, I think the reference was to DEVO (silly band from the 70s and 80s); i.e., that this dumb football player is a perfect example of the de-evolution process.



Perhaps a better quote would have been "God made Man, but he used the monkey to do it, Ape was the plan and we're all here to prove it."

Okay, let me go on record that Kellen Winslow Jr. has given me more than enough reason before this incident to think he's about as smart and self-aware as an earthworm. I can't stand him. But let me give him a smidge of credit for at least having the sense to "practice" in a parking lot. With that, I've developed a scoring system that even he might understand:



Practicing in a parking lot: Gain of 5 yards.



Penalty, Ill-advised choice of first bike '05 GSX-R Anything: -15 yards.



Penalty, Delay of game, Improper equipment: Chin strap unbuckled: -5 yards.



Penalty, Personal foul, listening to dumbass friends: -15 yards



Penalty, Personal foul, being a dumbass himself: -15 yards.



Penalty, Personal foul, breaching lucrative NFL contract. -10,000,000+ yards, ejection from game and possible lifetime suspension from career.



Penalty, Personal foul, being an unbelievably huge dumbass: -15 yards.



Result of play: Loss of 10,000,060+ yards and possible career-ending injury.

Default Re: easy to forget strap

lets not be too harsh--especially if you've ever forgotten to strap up your helmet. Be honest now.



It goes like this sometimes: helmet on, glasses on, maybe goggles over glasses on, neck protector on, jacket on, pre-ride check completed, ....throttle up and ride. 10 miles down the road--whoaa, helmets not strapped.
