Bike racks and football tix 

? Mitch's note on Captain Ed "surprising" the First Mate by renting a convertible on their trip to LA (this will be helpful to dry the tears after his Irish get waxed by USC Saturday) reminds me of a friend's tale. He had dated and eventually moved in with a woman, one of those stately females who exude class from every pore. He definitely was "dating up". He, a fellow grad student, did not own a car and rode a bike everywhere. He also is a classic endomorph, so seeing him on a bike was always a bit humorous anyway. So what does he get her for Christmas?

A bike rack for her car.

She did not own a bike.

She moved out before Valentine's Day.

I'm not sayin', Ed, I'm just sayin'.
