This is the first time I can recall a U.S. president getting sports commentary since Ford and his Olympic-level dismounts from Air Force One.

Who's Ford, John?   :-*

You mean Harrison Ford, in the Air Force One flick?  Don't recall any poor dismounts from him in the movie, but I'll have to double check the next time I watch it.  Never heard of any other "Fords" who may have used Air Force One...   :P

Did you know that the Consumer Product Safety Commission is headed by three commissioners nominated by the President? And that the President designates one of the commissioners as Chairman? The current Chairman is Hal Stratton,  nominated by President George W. Bush just last year.

Isn't that interesting?

Now I'm thinking, "Segway 1, Bush 1."

Just read a story that the Pentagon is testin versions of the Segway which they hope to someday use in battle (cue terminator music)

Note that Bush is Commander in Chief...what does that do to the Big Board Tally?

You know, I'm glad this thread was updated, because a couple of months ago, I had a chance to try out a Segway for a little bit, and I didn't fall off a once.

I'm giving serious consideration to throwing my hat in the ring for next year's presidential race.

On a recent trip to Atlanta, I saw cops using these things to get around.

I don't know. Bicycles are cooler, and horseback is even better. But anything to take the stress off a donut-laden physique, I guess.

Hmmm, yeah that does take something away from the "Cool" factor that mounted police officers have going for them.  

They're a biggie in Pittsburgh, as we have a pretty decent fleet of Harley's (Some with sidecars even, who'd have thunk it?) and are a pride of the police force.  I don't wanna fruit-ify my law-enforcement via the Segway.  :(

Horses are definitely cooler, though the Segway doesn't leave poop everywhere I suppose.  Depends who may be riding it at the time though I guess.

Damn. If it's got two wheels, it's a menace to Bush.

I wonder if we'll find some Segways (of mass destruction) in the Middle East anytime soon?

Good Lord, that mountain biking accident picture is hilarious!  Took the pavement right down the middle of his face...  Dude doesn't even know how to take a dive relatively safely.   ::)
