Yes. This is what I've become. I'm stooping to the lowest levels to chide a worthy rival. Apparently its in my nature. Who knew.
A brief meeting with an anonymous local cycling enthusiast left me with a designated task: be a jerk. Shame Dr. Huebner into appearing at this weekend's Altona Winter Bike Festival. Degrade and defame his beloved Blue Devils in an attempt to goad him into appearing this weekend. I was told its who I am, a designated jerk.
At this point I had to look deeper into my own being. Is this truly who I am? Someone who plays upon others emotions in attempts to sway their thoughts more in line with my own? Is this psychological warfare deeply seeded in my psyche? Am I a designated jerk?
I decided to take a stand. Putting aside the wishes of others I've decided not to be that jerk. I won't attempt to humiliate Dr. Huebner into appearing at our event. Even if he's been here every time so far (I think). Nor will I remind him of his Blue Devils shameful track record at the AWBF's of the past. Let bygones be bygones.
