    I work at a UPS Store on Salt Lake's east side (ie, rich) and I'm at work Wednesday helping some lady ship a package when I look up and I see some dude carrying in a framed team CSC yellow jersey. I'm like, "wha?" and continue helping lady. So I finish shipping her package and look up to see Dave Zabriskie holding one of his jerseys. He set it down on the counter and the lady asks "Whats that?" and he said "A bike jersey", "Oh, how'd you get it?", "Uh, just bike racing". Hilarity ensues. Anyway, it was cool. I packaged it for him for a plane flight so he could give it to some dude at USCF. All of my coworkers were so confused as to why I thought it was so cool that I was packaging one of his yellow jerseys...

    Yeah, for about 5 mins, him and his fiance. Mostly about 24 Hours of Moab, and his USCF thing. I told him I couldn't afford the $350 entrance fee for Moab and he told me I should just go ride for 24 hours somewhere :p
